  • River Oaks International Tennis Tournament je tenisový turnaj hraný od roku 1931 v houstonském sportovním klubu River Oaks Country Club. Představuje nejstarší tenisovou událost konanou na území Spojených států, která se od svého vzniku odehrává na stejném místě. Turnaj byl nejdříve určen pouze amatérům, později se stal součástí mužského profesionálního okruhu ATP Tour. V roce 1974 se zde uskutečnilo finále mezi třicetičtyřletým Australanem Rodem Laverem a o generaci mladším sedmnáctiletým Švédem Björnem Borgem. Laver se ziskem titulu stal prvním hráčem, který získal čtyři turnajové výhry. Premiérový titul tenisové kariéry si zde v roce 1980 připsal československý tenista Ivan Lendl. V roce 2008 došlo ke sloučení tohoto turnaje s Mužským tenisovým mistrovstvím Spojených států na antuce – U.S. Men's Clay Court Championships, které sem bylo přemístěno z dalšího houstonského areálu Westside Tennis Club.
