The Open 13 is an annual ATP World Tour 250 series event that takes place in Marseille, France.
In 2023, we'll witness the 31st edition of the competition. Last year was all about Andrey Rublev's brilliance. The Russian won the men’s singles event, beating Felix Auger-Aliassime in the final. Moreover, he also won the doubles tournament teaming up with Denys Molchanov.
The inaugural edition of the tournament was held in 1993, with Marco Rosset winning it by beating Jan Siemerink in the final. The French duo of Arnaud Boetsch and Olivier Delaître were the first doubles champions of the tournament, beating Ivan Lendl and Christo van Rensburg.
While French players have often been dominant at the Open 13, greats like Boris Becker, Yevgeny Kafelnikov, Andy Murray, and Juan Martin del Potro have also won the competition.
