Swiss Indoors History and Previous Winners

The history of the Swiss Indoors can stretch as far back as 1920, during the time of its precursor tournament- the Swiss International Covered Courts. Its start on a tennis tour came in 1977 when the event became part of the Grand Prix Circuit. The venue- St. Jakobshalle has hosted the event annually since 1995. By then, the Grand Prix Circuit had been discontinued and the ATP Tour succeeded it. Though always an indoor tennis event, the Swiss Indoors has been played on the carpet between the 1970s and then again from 1996-2006. Prior to 2009, the event was in the ATP250 category. Its upgrade elevated the event to the biggest in Switzerland.

Roger Federer, a Basel native, is the predominant reason behind the event’s success. In total he holds 6 records at the tournament, including most consecutive wins (3xtwo times), most titles won (10), and most finals reached in a single ATP event (15), which is an Open Era record. In the doubles category, 5 players are tied for most titles won, 4 each.
