ATP Florence

The ATP Florence is a defunct men's tennis tournament that was played on the Grand Prix tennis circuit from 1973 through 1989 and the ATP Tour 1990 through 1994. The tournament was held in Florence, Italy and was competed on outdoor clay courts. From 1973 through 1989, it was played in the weeks preceding the French Open; however, from 1990, it was played the week immediately after.

Italian Paolo Bertolucci won the event a record three consecutive times from 1975 through 1977, with clay court specialist Thomas Muster repeating the feat from 1991 through 1993.

It was replaced on the ATP calendar in 1995 by the Oporto Open.
