  1. SAP Open 2012 stands out from the past SAP Opens simply because of the players participating in this year’s tournament. We got Andy Roddick taking the stage not only as a top-ranked American, but as an SAP Ambassador as well. I’m very excited to see the young Jack Sock representing America as well. We got the incandescent SAP Open defending champion Milos Raonic representing Canada. The fan-favorite Frenchman Gael Monfils returns for another SAP Open, always bringing exciting tennis to HP Pavillion. Lastly, we get to see the legendary Johnny Mac play doubles with the young rising stars.

    The SAP Open is the only Bay Area tennis event. It is no question a true blessing to have the oldest ATP event in San Jose.

Last, but not least, we get to see the legendary Johnny Mac play doubles with the young rising stars in this tournament.

    The SAP Open is the only Bay Area tennis event. It is no question a true blessing to have the oldest ATP event in San Jose.

  3. The SAP Open has been a great opportunity to bring my daughter to watch her idol, Andy Roddick, play in person, and for us to share time watching top men’s tennis. What I especially appreciate about the SAP Open is that it’s so close to home — I drive just 20 minutes to arrive at the HP Pavilion, where parking and access are easy.

    SAP Open 2012 Fact: The SAP Open is one of 62 tournaments in 32 countries on 6 continents on the ATP World Tour.

  4. Why I love the SAP Open: The vivacious crowd combines with the intensity of the players to deliver an electric atmosphere, on par with the US Open at night. This environment is also aided by the HP Pavilion’s indoor hard court, which quickens the pace the players put on the ball and leads to some unbelievable shots. The result is some highly entertaining tennis! Plus, it makes me feel great that the tournament is so generous to the East Palo Alto Tennis & Tutoring program, which is helping to breed the next generation of players in my community.

    Fact: Kevin Anderson (Illinois) and Ryan Sweeting (Florida) both were collegiate stars before turning pro and winning titles in 2011 on the ATP Tour. Wildcard Steve Johnson (USC) looks to follow that path, having already set records on the college circuit with an active 44-match win streak, 3 team national championships, and the 2011 men’s singles title under his belt. Possible qualifiers (those in the 3rd round of QS) Dennis Lajola (Hawaii), Dimitar Kutrovsky (Texas), and Blake Strode (Arkansas) also achieved success on the collegiate level.

  5. I have been to the SAP Open in San Jose two times in the past three years. What I like most about the tournament is seeing lesser known players who later go on to achieve big things. In 2009, for example, I got to see Juan Martin Del Potro and Kei Nishikori up close and personal at the SAP Open. Later that year, of course, Del Potro went on to win the US Open, and today Nishikori is the highest ranked male player ever from Japan.

    Fact: “San Jose is the first American stop on the ATP World Tour.”

  6. SAPOpen by far provides the most intimate experience for Tennis fans of all levels. The views are excellent no matter the seat and then you have the top players, Roddick, McEnroe, Sampras, Monfils, Murray. Of late, each year has been a surprise – either Murray/Stephanek/Verdasco/Raonic ! Excellent organizers, dedicated volunteers, great indoor setting and food concessions.

  7. What I like most about the SAP Open is that despite it being a lower level tournament (ATP Tour 250) it still manages to attract a number of well-known players. This ensures a star-studded event, where I can see a range of players – both well known and up and coming stars – that I might not normally get to see.

    Fact: “Milos Raonic won the 2011 SAP Open – his first ATP World Tour title – against Fernando Verdasco in a two set, tiebreak final”.

  8. What I like most about the SAP Open is that I get to watch all my favorite American players up close so you almost feel like you are on the court too. This applies to the highly ranked Americans and the up-and-coming as they go head-to-head with Grand Slam singles champions and each other year-after-year. I cheer them on all the way through to the title – hopefully!
    2012 SAP Open fact is The “Open” in SAP Open means that anyone could enter this tournament and win it. Prior to the main draw event, there is a pre-qualifying and a qualifying tournament. The pre-qualifying tournament is open to any male player of any playing level.

  9. Dear Readers,

    Firstly, thank you so much for visiting and commenting on OnCourt Advantage. Here are 3 hints to help YOU when you leave your entry/comment for this giveaway competition…

    HINTS:

    Make sure you definitely have 100 words or less in your comment/answer.
    Make sure what you write is specific to the SAP Open in comparison to other tennis tournaments.
    The words that you write about the SAP Open fact or detail DO NOT count in your 100 words or less, word count.

    For example, Lizzie above wrote 73 words and Elaine wrote 74 words for their answers/comments and wrote specifically about the SAP Open. Therefore, both Lizzie and Elaine are eligible to win the prize because they met the “100 words or less” criteria and supplied a SAP Open fact.

  10. Why do I love the SAP Open? It’s the closest professional tournament to my home in the bay area, and this year it has many rising stars (Ryan Harrison, Jack Sock…) in addition to more well-known stars, so there are so many chances for upsets and surprises. I love the location, the people, the volunteers. Plus, it’s super close to my birthday on the 24th and I really want tickets for my birthday 🙂
    One fact is that the SAP Open player of the week, Andy Roddick, was from Omaha, Nebraska. When he was younger, he won the Lil Mo nationals in Florida and this past year, he played young Jack Sock, also from Nebraska, and said at the US Open, “I didn’t think I’d ever play another guy from Nebraska in my career.”

  11. I love the SAP Open as there is a wide variety of players from all over the world, the young rising stars, the Americans, the established players plus of course the superstars like Monfils and Roddick. Thanks OnCourt Advantage for all the details and explanations, learning more about how the SAP Open works makes me enjoy it more, watch it more and motivates me to go there to see it for the first time.

    SAP Open fact, “Over the last 30 years, many players who made their first big splash at this event as teenagers rapidly went on to win a Grand Slam. Within a year of reaching the finals or winning here, Bjorn Borg, John McEnroe, Stefan Edberg, Michael Chang all went on to win Grand Slam titles.”
