The Swiss Open Gstaad, also called the Swiss Open or the EFG Swiss Open Gstaad, is an ATP 250 competition. It is an outdoor clay tournament played at the Roy Emerson Arena in Gstaad, Northern Switzerland. Originally, the competition was called the Swiss International Championships, which took place between 1897 and 1914.

This event was an annual grass court men’s and women’s event. However, the Swiss Open had several hiatus periods in the early 20th century. In 1915, the first Gstaad International took place as Russian player Victor de Coubasch emerged as the victor.

The competition then disappeared until it returned in 1931. Over the next 37 years, the Swiss Open changed several times from the Swiss International Championships to the Gstaad International. Finally, in 1968, at the beginning of the Open Era, the Swiss Open Gstaad cemented its place on the ATP tour.

In 1990, the event was officially named an ATP 250 competition, and this status has remained ever since. The Swiss Open Gstaad has attracted some of the biggest names in men’s tennis previously. Most notably, home player Roger Federer won the tournament in 2004. One year earlier, following his first-ever Wimbledon title, Federer was also presented with a ceremonial cow at the Gstaad Open to mark his big achievement.

Other high-profile players to win the competition include Casper Ruud, who won back-to-back titles in 2021 and 2022, Dominic Thiem, and Richard Gasquet. However, former Spanish player Sergi Bruguera has the most Swiss Open Gstaad tournament wins since it became an ATP 250-level event. Bruguera won three consecutive titles between 1992 and 1994.
