Having started in 2016, the Mifel Open is a relative newcomer to the ATP 250 series of tournaments, which takes place annually at the famous vacation destination of Los Cabos, Mexico.

Now in its sixth year, the tournament will take place at the newly built Cabo Sports Complex, which boasts a center court stadium for 3,500 fans and a Grand Stand that fits 1,200.

For 2022, the Mifel Open’s prize money reaches an all-time high of $822,110, which equates to €801,906 and £671,096, a sizeable 37% increase over the purse in 2021.

The tournament’s winner will earn $125,040, while the runner-up will take home a respectable $72,395. These figures represent 113% and 72% increases over the prior year.

The doubles pair who wins the tournament will split $43,440, and the runner-up will pocket $23,250, which are also sizeable bumps of 98% and 48% vs. 2021.

You can explore a complete breakdown of the 2020 Mifel Open prize money in the following tables, along with historical data for reference and comparison.

2022 Full Breakdown

Tournament organizers at the Mifel Open in Los Cabos distribute 80% of prize money to singles, and 20% to doubles, which you’ll find is standard at ATP tournaments worldwide.

Beyond events, prize money also breaks down by round, increasing the further a player progresses in the tournament. The following tables summarize this data by year, and you can scroll left to right to view historical numbers.

I’ve also converted prize money to euros and Sterling Pound, which I calculate using the prior year’s exchange rate on the day of the final for a close approximation of value.

Prize Money by Year

The Mifel Open’s prize money changes yearly, with the tournament’s revenues heavily influencing the numbers.

Like most tournaments, the Los Cabos event earns revenue primarily through ticket sales, sponsorships, merchandise, and concessions, so a down year can negatively impact player earnings. In 2017 and 2021, the tournament’s prize money declined from the prior year, so it’s constantly fluctuating.

In the following table, I outline yearly prize money for the Mifel Open since its inaugural event in 2016. Prize money is up 22% when comparing 2022 to the first year.

Yes. The Mexican government taxes all player earnings at the Los Cabos Open, reaching as high as 35%. Players are rarely taxed in their home country for their winnings in Los Cabos because a double tax treaty usually exists between countries.
