Since holding the inaugural Open De Paris-Bercy in 1986, the Rolex Paris Masters has remained a premier indoor tournament and a crucial stop on the calendar as the ATP’s final Masters 1000 event of the year.

Each year the tournament takes place in a small neighborhood in the heart of Paris at the Accor Arena, which is a mixed-use venue that can seat up to 14,000 spectators for tennis.

Over the years, the Rolex Paris Masters has seen three French champions, including Guy Forget, Sebastien Grosjean, and most recently, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in 2008. Gael Monfils came close on two occasions, reaching the finals in 2009 and 2010.

In 2022, the tournament’s total prize money is €5,415,410, translating to $5,353,945 and £4,657,637 for a significant 108% increase over the prior year and the event’s largest purse in history.

The singles champion will do well this year, earning a check for €836,355, while the runner-up will pocket €456,720, which equates to 149% and 144% increases compared to 2021.

In doubles, the winning team will split €282,960, while their competitors who fall short of the title will earn €147,840. These sums represent 304% and 198% increases versus last year.

Overall, the tournament’s prize money is back on track after suffering a few weaker years due to the pandemic. The remainder of this guide provides a complete breakdown of the Rolex Paris Masters prize money and historical data for reference.

2022 Full Breakdown

The highest level breakdown of prize money at the Rolex Paris Masters is by discipline, with singles receiving 80% of the purse and doubles 20%.

Prize money breaks down further by round, where players who make it deeper into the tournament earn more. For context, the winner in singles will receive roughly 15% of the total prize money, which is more than 38 times the amount a player gets if they lose in the first round.

The following tables break down prize money at the Rolex Paris Masters by round since 2006. You can scroll left to right to view the entire data set. For a quick comparison, I’ve converted euros to US dollars and sterling pounds, 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

Tournament organizers evaluate prize money yearly, which the tournament’s revenues heavily influence.

For example, in 2020 and 2021, the Rolex Paris Masters ran with limited fans due to the pandemic impacting key revenue drivers, including ticket sales, merchandise, and concessions. As a result, prize money suffered a 40% decline in 2020 and a 17% decline in 2021.

Aside from that exception, the tournament has done a fantastic job of steadily increasing prize money each year. Since 2006, prize money has only declined once in 2008 and increased by 146% in total. The following table outlines yearly prize money at the Rolex Paris Masters from 2006.
