The 2021 KPSF Open will include both a women’s and men’s open draw and feature some of the best players in the Bay Area and beyond, all competing for $50,000 in prize money. This year’s event will also feature an Open Doubles Challenge and Arthur Ashe Community Day for kids under the age of 12.
The Kunal Patel San Francisco (KPSF) Championships were conceived by Mukesh, Harsha, and Monique Patel, parents, and sister of Kunal Patel, in honor of his love for life and passion for tennis. Kunal’s exuberant life was tragically cut short on October 23, 2014 at the age of 27. Only a week later, Kunal was to depart for London with his friends to watch the ATP World Tour Finals.
It is in memory of Kunal’s love for the game, and his passion for the sport as a fan, that his family has established the Kunal Patel SF Championships, the first ever tournament of its kind in San Francisco.
