Winston-Salem Open - August 20-27, 2016

2016 Tournament Information coming soon!!


Now in its fifth year, Winston-Salem proudly hosts the Winston-Salem Open (WSO) at Wake Forest Univeristy. The WSO is the last ATP World Tour 250 event prior to the US Open. Last year's tournament brought more than 40 of the world's top 80 players including Sam Querry, Jurgen Melzer and John Isner,  a North Carolina native who has won the WSO twice. The Open is held August 22-29, 2015 at the Wake Forest Tennis Complex adjacent to BB&T Field.

“World-class players like John Isner, Tommy Robredo, Sam Querrey, Jerzy Janowicz and Jurgen Melzer are attracted to Winston-Salem year after year because of the outstanding hospitality, fan support and volunteers that our community offers,” said tournament director Bill Oakes.  “We’re equally excited that this year an elite group of other young Americans like Jack Sock, Steve Johnson, Donald Young and Bradley Klahn will compete in the tournament.”

“If you want to see the next generation of American tennis, the Winston-Salem Open will be the place to be this August,” Oakes added.  “That speaks volumes about the Winston-Salem Open, which is just four years old.  We will fill the remaining slots with other incredible players and look forward to having another blockbuster tournament this year at the Wake Forest Tennis Complex.”
