Welcome From The Tournament Director

Welcome to the official website for the third Malaysian Open, Kuala Lumpur, an official ATP World Tour 250 tournament and one of only five in continental Asia.

 

It is a tremendous honour for Kuala Lumpur and for Malaysia to be hosting this tournament once again and my team and I are extremely excited and motivated to be building upon what has already been achieved since 2009.

 

So many persons and organisations continue to contribute to making this tournament possible. I salute and thank you all and believe that the best way to express our gratitude, is to make this tournament the absolute best it can be – a jewel in Malaysia's sporting and social calendar. Permanent hallmarks and tournament features each year will always be great players from countries far and wide, happy fans that enjoy unforgettable experiences each time they interact with the tournament, world-class marketing and massive local and international television coverage and an unwavering commitment to “do things right” - and to the highest standards possible. Our famous daily catch the lucky ball contests will this year allow fans to win iPad 2's on every day of the tournament.

 

To our players from the ATP World Tour, we promise once again one of the finest hotels in Asia, a great international airport with convenient connections, a superb stadium infrastructure and comfortable player lounges, short travel times, excellent player food and top-class practice courts. Our long term partner, the Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur, is a five-star super hotel with incredible service and friendly staff, a top class gym and facilities, two additional outdoor hard courts and it is located less than a minutes walk from Suria KLCC, one of the best shopping malls in Asia. KLCC offers you hundreds of shops, restaurants, coffee places, movie cinemas, banks and will mean that your stay in KL will be an enjoyable and relaxed one. We promise that you will not run out of restaurants to try during your stay and that you will be touched by the warm hospitality and convenience of Malaysia.

 

To tennis fans in Malaysia and South East Asia, our mission is to entertain and enthrall you with the finest ATP World Tour singles and doubles action. We provide interaction and daily autograph sessions with the players, opportunities to win participation in the on-court coin toss and meals with the players, our signature daily catch the ball promotions with many prizes, Hawkeye and serve speed technology and more. And ticket prices are the most affordable and high value of any tournament on the Tour!

 

To the media, thank you in advance for your support and we look forward to choosing the winners of the "Best Media Coverage" and "Best Photo Coverage” who will win an iPad 2.
