The Stuttgart Open (currently sponsored by Mercedes Benz and called the MercedesCup) is an ATP World Tour 250 series tennis tournament on the ATP Tour. Between 1970 and 1989, the Stuttgart Open was a Grand Prix tennis circuit event. From 1990 to 1999, the Stuttgart Open was an ATP Championship Series tournament. The Championship Series name was changed to ATP International Series Gold in 2000, and the Stuttgart Open was a part of this series from 2000–2001 and 2003–2008. In 2002, the Stuttgart Open was briefly demoted for one year to ATP International Series status. In 2009, the Stuttgart Open was demoted again to the newly named ATP World Tour 250 series status, which it has retained ever since.


Held since 1916 in Stuttgart, Germany, the Stuttgart Open was played on clay up to and including 2014. Starting in 2015, the tournament is played on grass. Along with the move to grass-courts, the tournament is now staged in the week after the French Open finishes.

Thomas Muster of Austria won the title twice in consecutive years (1995 and 1996).

This tournament is famous for awarding the title winner with a Mercedes car, in addition to the prize money.

The Stuttgart Open should not be confused with the Eurocard Open. The Stuttgart Open has always been played outdoors, while the Eurocard Open was a tournament that was played indoors in Stuttgart from 1988–2001, with the exception of 1995 when it was played in Essen. The Eurocard Open was also the eighth Super 9 event on the ATP Tour from 1995–2001.

Roger Federer has signed a deal to compete in Stuttgart for 2016 and 2017. It will be Federer's first appearance in Stuttgart since the Stuttgart Masters in 2001.
