The tennis matches are played in the Roy Emerson Arena, named after the five-time record winner from Australia, which seats up to 4,500 spectators. The arena is easily accessible from Gstaad station and, surrounded by charming chalets, gentle hills and lush meadows, it is worth more than just a glance. Every year, the tennis tournament attracts famous players, among them were Stefan Edberg, Boris Becker, Yannick Noah, Jim Courier, Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka. The Swiss spectators will remember a special highlight: the tournament of 2004 - when Roger Federer won the final match.
