The St. Petersburg Open (Russian: -) is a professional men's tennis tournament played on indoor hard courts. It is part of the ATP Tour 250 series of the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) Tour. The tournament was held annually at the Petersburg Sports and Concert Complex in St. Petersburg, Russia, since 1995.
