The Pilot Pen Tennis (currently known as the Pilot Pen Tennis presented by Schick for sponsorship reasons) is a professional tennis tournament played on outdoor hard courts. It is currently part of the ATP World Tour 250 series of the ATP Tour and is a Premier Tournament on the WTA Tour. It is held annually at the Cullman-Heyman Tennis Centermarker in New Haven, Connecticutmarker, United Statesmarker, just before the fourth and last Grand Slam tournament of the year, the US Openmarker.

History

The tournament was created in 1948 as the U.S. Women's Hardcourt Championships, and first played in Sacramento, Californiamarker, United Statesmarker. Over the twenty following years of its first run, the event was moved regularly to several U.S. locations, including: San Franciscomarker; Berkeley, Californiamarker; Salt Lake City, Utahmarker; Seattle, Washingtonmarker; La Jolla, San Diego, Californiamarker; and Denver, Coloradomarker. Among the winners of the event were Doris Hart, Darlene Hard, Nancy Richey, Rosemary Casals, Billie Jean King, and Jane "Peaches" Bartkowicz. The event was discontinued after its 1969 edition, following the beginning of tennis' open era.

In 1988, the United States Tennis Association (USTA) decided to reinstate the tournament. The first edition of the new U.S. Women's Hardcourt Championships were held that year in San Antonio, Texasmarker, first as part of the Tier IV Series of the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) Tour, and then, in 1990, as an upgraded Tier III event. The championships were first sponsored by Post Cereals in 1990, and, from 1992 to 1994, by Acura. Over the first years of its second run, the tournament saw among its champions several past or future World No. 1, as Steffi Graf, Monica Seles, or Martina Navratilova. After the event was moved to Stratton Mountain, Vermontmarker for the 1993 and 1994 editions, conflicts with the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics prevented the tournament from being held in 1995 and 1996. In 1997, the event returned again, now within the Tier II category, first taking place in Stone Mountain, Georgiamarker, then, starting from 1998, in its current location of New Haven, Connecticutmarker, under the new sponsorship of Pilot Pen. In the first years of its run in New Haven, the event saw its competition dominated by Lindsay Davenport (four-time runner-up in New Haven, one previous time in Stone Mountain, and 2005 champion) and Venus Williams (four-time champion from 1999 to 2002).

When it arrived in New Haven in 1998, the Pilot Pen International became the second tennis tournament of New Haven, alongside the men's Pilot Pen International, first created in Bretton Woods, New Hampshiremarker in 1973 as the Volvo International, and moved to Connecticutmarker in 1990, where it took the Pilot Pen sponsorship in 1997. When the men's event was cancelled in 1999, the women's Pilot Pen tournament remained the only one of the region until 2005, when the USTA decided to purchase the men's tournament of Long Islandmarker, New Yorkmarker. Started in Long Island's Jerichomarker hamlet as a four-player singles exhibition in 1981, the event, first known as the Hamlet Challenge Cup, developed into a larger draw competition, and saw winning numerous top players in the 1980s, including Ivan Lendl, or an eighteen-year-old Andre Agassi in 1988. In 1990, the Long Island tournament officially entered the newly created Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) Tour, becoming the Norstar Bank Hamlet Challenge Cup in 1990 and 1991, the Waldbaum's Hamlet Cup from 1992 to 2000, The Hamlet Cup in 2001, and finally the TD Waterhouse Cup from 2002 until the move to New Haven, adding over the year names like Stefan Edberg, Yevgeny Kafelnikov, Magnus Norman, Paradorn Srichaphan or Lleyton Hewitt to its list of champions.

Creating the first large joint ATP-WTA tournament leading to the US Openmarker, the 2005 merge allowed the Pilot Pen Tennis, which also became the last event of the US Open Series, to continue to attract top players, with Svetlana Kuznetsova, James Blake, Justine Henin or Nikolay Davydenko winning the event in recent years.
