The Quito Open is a Grand Prix affiliated tennis tournament played from 1979 to 1982. It was held in Quito in Ecuador and played on outdoor clay courts. The city is located at 2,800 m (9,200 ft) above mean sea level. The lower air pressure means breathing is more difficult for players and the ball flies faster.

Andrés Gómez was the most successful competitor at the event, winning the singles competition in 1982 and twice taking the doubles title in 1980 and 1981 partnering Chilean Hans Gildemeister. The event resumed in 2015, replacing the VTR Open[1]
