The Malaysian Open (formerly known as the Malaysian Tennis Classic) is a professional women's tennis tournament played on outdoor hard courts. The event is affiliated with the Women's Tennis Association (WTA), and is an International-level tournament on the WTA Tour. The event has been held at the Bukit Kiara Equestrian & Country Resort and The Royal Selangor Golf Club. The first edition of the event took place from February 22-28, 2010. In 2011 the event became sponsored by BMW.[1]

Initially, the organisers operated with a license directly from WTA. However, later on they cut a deal for a lease of WTA Palermo's license in late-2013. The last Malaysian Open will be held in 2018, after which, WTA Palermo returns to the tour calendar in 2019.[2]
