The Dutch Open Tennis Amersfoort (or Dutch Open) was a men's tennis tournament on the ATP Tour. Originally an event of the Grand Prix tennis circuit (1970–1989) it was held in Amersfoort, Netherlands until 2008. Held since 1957, the tournament was played on outdoor clay courts. Amersfoort was the venue after 2002, before that the tournament was hosted in Hilversum (1957–1994) and Amsterdam (1995–2001).

In 2008 the organizers sold the right of organization to the family of Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic, and the tournament was moved to Belgrade, where it became known as the Serbia Open.[1]
