The Hong Kong Tennis Open is a WTA tennis tournament that will be held on September 8, 2014 in Hong Kong.

The Hong Kong Open (also known as the Salem Open[1]) was also previously a tennis tournament that was held in Hong Kong on the Grand Prix tour from (1973–1987) and the ATP Tour from (1990–2002). It was replaced in 2003 by the Thailand Open.

In 2001, as with legislation restricting tobacco sponsorship, organisers controversially altered its official logo to include the logo of Perrier, causing anti-smoking campaigners to claim that the organisers exploited a loophole in its sponsorship clause.[2]

Players competed in the Victoria Park Tennis Centre, on outdoor hard courts. A women's competition was also held briefly, from 1980-1982; and then once more in 1993, as a Tier IV event. Michael Chang held the record number of wins with three; Wendy Turnbull won two in the women's competition.

Coupled with the relocation of an International event to Hong Kong from Kuala Lumpur in Week 37 in 2014, Hong Kong Tennis Open will be held as a women's tournament in 2014. [3]
