The U.S. National Indoor Tennis Championships is a professional tennis tournament that is currently held at the Racquet Club of Memphis in Memphis, Tennessee, United States. The event is played on indoor hard courts and usually takes place in February. For much of its more than 100 year history it was a combined men's and women's tournament but as of 2014 only a men's tournament is organized that is part of the ATP Tour. The event was previously known under various sponsored names including the Regions Morgan Keegan Championships, the Kroger St. Jude Championship, and the Volvo Championships.

History[edit]

Men's tournament

The men's tournament began in March 1898 when the inaugural edition was played at the Newton Winter Tennis Club in Newton Center and Leo Ware won the title after defeating Holcombe Ward in the final in straight sets.[1] There was no men's tournament in 1899 but in 1900 a men's doubles event was added and the tournament moved to the Seventh Regiment Armory in Manhattan, New York where it was played until 1963 with the exception of 1941 (Oklahoma City) and 1942-1945 (no tournament). In 1964 the tournament moved to Salisbury, Maryland and was organized by Jimmy Connors' manager Bill Riordan.[2] The last move occurred in 1976 when Memphis became the host of the event and has been the location of the tournament since.[3] The men's tournament was part of the Grand Prix tennis circuit between 1976 and 1989 before becoming an ATP Tour event.

Women's tournament

The women's tournament started in 1907 when they joined the men at the Seventh Regiment Armory location to form a combined tournament. Elisabeth Moore won the first title. The Women's doubles event was added in 1908.[2] The women played periods in New York (1907–1920, 1934–1940, 1947–1953) and Longwood Courts at Chestnut Hill (1921–1933, 1941–1946, 1954–1966). From 1967 to 1972 the women played in Winchester. In 2002 the women rejoined the men in Memphis and in 2012 Memphis announced that it was renaming (restoring) the tournament to U.S. National Indoor Tennis Championships.[4][5]

In 2002, a women's WTA Tour event in Oklahoma City was purchased and moved to Memphis; this event was renamed The Cellular South Cup. As Cellular South ended sponsoring the tournament after 2011, the event was renamed Memphis International.[6]

2014 changes

The 2013 tournament was the last combined men's and women's tournament and was held from February 16–24, 2013 at The Racquet Club of Memphis. Marina Erakovic was the last woman to win the title.[7] In 2014 the WTA event moved to Rio de Janeiro. The men's tournament lost its ATP World Tour 500 series certification, which also moved to Rio de Janeiro, but Memphis will continue as an ATP 250 event.[8]
