ATP Tel Aviv Open

The ATP Tel Aviv Open is a tennis tournament that will be played on outdoor hard courts at the Expo Complex in Tel Aviv, Israel.

After the cancelation of a number of ATP tournaments in China in 2022, the ATP tour awarded Tel Aviv a single-year license to stage an ATP 250 tournament in the city.

An ATP tournament was held from 1978 to 1996, so the 2022 tournament was the first time in over 20 years that an ATP 250 tournament was played in Tel Aviv.
