Welcome From The Tournament Director

 

Welcome to the official website for the sixth anniversary Malaysian Open, Kuala Lumpur, an official ATP World Tour 250 tournament.

It is a tremendous honor for Kuala Lumpur and for Malaysia to be hosting this tournament once again, and my team and I are extremely excited 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 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 continue and as does the wildly successful shirt promotion introduced last year, whereby fans with paid up tickets can take home an official ATP 250 event shirt – up to 500 free shirts for each ticketed event day (Wednesday to Sunday).

To our players from the ATP World Tour, we promise one of the friendliest hotels in Asia, the DoubleTree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur, a great international airport with convenient connections, a superb stadium infrastructure, short transfer times, excellent player food with our fresh baked cookies, pasta stations and baked to order player lounge pizzeria, top quality courts and lighting and racket stringing services.

To tennis fans in Malaysia and South East Asia, our mission is to entertain and enthrall you with the finest ATP World Tour tennis action. We provide interaction and daily autograph sessions with the players, lots of food and drink, 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!

We salute the Ministry of Tourism and all our sponsors and treasure you support. 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” contests.

We hope that you enjoy this website, keep in touch with us on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter and come and enjoy the Malaysian Open, Kuala Lumpur 2014.

With warm regards,
