History

3 MINUTE READ

The Lexus Surbiton Trophy is a part of the ATP Challenger Tour and ITF Women’s circuit, with the event being the first stop on the British grass court swing. Originally titled the Surrey Grass Court Championships during its inauguration in 1890, the tournament has been held at the Surbiton Lawn Tennis Club in Surrey since 1904.

During its long history, the tournament has attracted some of the top players from all eras and areas across the world. Amongst the names featured in the Lexus Surbiton Trophy roll of honour are some of tennis’ most reputable names including Sue Barker, Ann Jones, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Andy Murray, while the tournament has also crowned several rising stars over its tenure.

Notably, eight-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer contested his first professional grass-court match at the Lexus Surbiton Trophy back in 1999 where he reached the semi-finals - kick-starting what was to be one of the greatest grass court legacies in the sport.
