Moselle Open Prize Money

2022 Breakdown & Historicals

One of four ATP 250 tournaments hosted in France, the Moselle Open takes place annually in Metz and is named after the famous Moselle river that meanders through the picturesque city.

During its 19-year history that began in 2003, Frenchmen have dominated the tournament winning over 60% of the events. Past champs include Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Gilles Simon, Lucas Pouille, and Gaël Monfils to name a few.

As a smaller indoor tournament played on hard courts, it doesn’t boast the most impressive purse. Despite that, the event’s prize money hits an all-time high of €534,555 for 2022, translating to $533,031 and £463,678, an impressive 27.4% over the prior year.

The tournament’s singles champion will pocket €81,310, and the runner-up will claim a check for €47,430, which are 98% and 61% increases, respectively, compared to 2021.

In doubles, the winning pair of the smaller 16-team doubles draw will split €28,250 and the runner-up €15,110, 84% and 37% increases over last year. It’s worth noting that all rounds across the tournament, including qualifying, see percentage gains, which we’ll cover in greater detail as part of this guide.

This guide provides fans with a detailed overview and complete breakdown of the Moselle Open’s prize money and historical data for reference and quick comparison.

2022 Full Breakdown

Singles is the tournament’s main event featuring a 28-player draw compared to the 16-teams for doubles, so organizers distribute prize money accordingly. In 2022, roughly 80% of the purse supports singles, while the remaining 20% goes to doubles.

However, beyond the singles and doubles events, we can break prize money down by round to better understand earnings, with players making more money the further they progress. The following table summarizes this data over the years.

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

Prize Money by Year

Every year, tournament organizers at the Moselle Open set prize money, which the event’s revenue heavily influences.

Some of the biggest influences on revenue include ticket sales, sponsorships, merchandise, and concessions, so as these change, so do available funds for prize money.

Since 2003, the prize money has increased or stayed flat every year except for 2008 and 2021, so they have an excellent track record of steady growth and success. Like many tournaments, their prize money slowed due to the pandemic. The event was canceled in 2020 and held with limited capacity in 2021.

The following table outlines the yearly prize money for the Moselle Open since 2003. Compared to the first year, 2022 prize money is up 51%, or €179,555.
