The 2009 Serbia Open (also known as Serbia Open powered by Telekom Srbija for sponsorship reasons) was a men's tennis tournament played on outdoor clay courts. It was the first edition of the event known that year as the Serbia Open, and was a part of the ATP World Tour 250 series of the 2009 ATP World Tour. It took place at the Milan Gale Muškatirović complex in Belgrade, Serbia, from May 2 through May 10, 2009.


The singles draw was headlined by the tournament's host, Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) No. 3, 2008 Tennis Masters Cup, Dubai winner and recent Miami, Monte Carlo and Rome runner-up Novak Djokovic from Serbia. Other featured stars included reigning Nottingham champion Ivo Karlović, and Gstaad and Umag finalist Igor Andreev.
