The China Open (formerly the Beijing Salem Open) is an annual professional tennis tournament held in Beijing, China. The men's singles and doubles events were first held in 1993, the year in which the Qatar Open and Dubai Tennis Championships were also introduced to the men's tour, as the ATP opened a series of new tournaments in Asia.

In 1998, the tournament was dropped from the ATP tour calendar, but was reinstated in 2004, the same year as the WTA Tour women's singles and doubles events, previously held in Shanghai, were moved to Beijing.

In 2006, the China Open became the first tournament outside of the United States to utilize the Hawk-Eye system in match play.[3]

Novak Djokovic is the only player to have won the title five times. Djokovic and Michael Chang hold the record for consecutive wins with three titles. In doubles, the Bryan Brothers are the only doubles pair to have won consecutive titles.
