The St. Petersburg Open (Russian: Открытый Санкт-Петербург) is a professional tennis tournament played on indoor hard courts. It is currently part of the ATP World Tour 250 series of the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) World Tour. It has been held annually at the Petersburg Sports and Concert Complex in St. Petersburg, Russia, since 1995.

2002 Australian Open champion Thomas Johansson, former World No. 1 Marat Safin and Andy Murray are the only players to have won the singles titles more than once.
