About the KPSF Open

Tournament History

The Kunal Patel San Francisco (KPSF) Open was 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 Open, the first ever tournament of its kind in San Francisco.

About Kunal

Kunal Patel

Kunal Patel was an extraordinary human being, whose energy, enthusiasm, and zest for life knew no bounds. He was a traveller, adventurer, sports enthusiast, and a gifted athlete. He loved to hike, bike (he had completed the Escape from Alcatraz and the New York Triathlon), and above all, play tennis.

Kunal first lifted a tennis racket when he was nine years old and immediately fell in love with the sound of the ball whacking against the tennis racket, and the thrill of facing down an opponent (his Dad). Kunal loved to play tennis on weekends with his family and competed at the club level in San Francisco, where he lived and worked on establishing a career. Kunal an avid tennis player and a dedicated sports fan who was fascinated by the way in which sports tested a player’s athleticism, competitive drive, and spirit. Kunal’s passion for tennis took him around the world to attend live tournaments.
