The 2012 San Jose Open is an ATP World Tour 250 category tournament and is the first American men’s tournament each year. The official name of the 2012 event is the SAP Open due to title sponsorship naming rights. SAP is a market leader in “enterprise application software, SAP (NYSE: SAP) helps companies of all sizes and industries run better.” SAP has been the title sponsor since 2005 and without such support tennis would suffer.
