Geneva Open Prize Money
2023 Breakdown & Historicals
Hosted at the Tennis Club de Geneve, the Geneva Open is an ATP 250 clay court tournament held annually in May before the French Open.
In 2015, the tournament returned to Geneva after a 23-year hiatus, coinciding with the closure of the Düsseldorf Open, which folded due to lack of sponsorship, leaving the doors open for Switzerland.
During its history, Swiss players have won the tournament four times, including Claudio Mezzadari in 1987, Marc Rosset in 1989, and Stan Wawrinka with back-to-back titles in 2016 and 2017.
For 2023, the Geneva Open’s total prize money amounts to €562,815, which equates to $608,792 and £489,381 at the time of writing. It’s the largest purse in the tournament’s history and represents a modest 5.3% increase over the prior year.
The tournament’s champion in singles will receive a check for €85,605, which equates to 15% of the total purse. On the other hand, the runner-up will pocket €49,940, 42% less than the winner and 9% of the total.
In doubles, the team crowned champs this year will share €29,740, while the losing pair will split €15,910, 47% less than the winners.

2023 Full Breakdown
The Geneva Open consists of two events, singles and doubles. Between the two, roughly 80% of prize money funds singles, while the remaining 20% goes to the doubles event, as is typical with ATP tournaments.
Beyond disciple, prize money breaks down further by how far a player progresses through the tournament. The better a player’s result, the more they get paid. For example, the winner in singles will earn over 52 times as much as a player who loses in the first round.

Prize Money by Year
Prize money fluctuates yearly for the Italian Open. Although it’s their goal to increase it continually, various factors influence the event’s revenues, including ticket sales, sponsorships, merchandise, and concessions.
If any of these revenue generators suffer, prize money may dip, as happened in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic. Thankfully for players, the tournament is back on track with a record ATP and WTA purse.
The following table outlines the yearly prize money for the Italian Open since 2005 for men and 2009 for women. During these periods, the tournament’s prize money has grown by 214% for the ATP and 78% for the WTA, where prize money isn’t equal.
