BMW Open, Munich Prize Money 2021

The BMW Open is the first of four German tournaments on the ATP Tour and takes place in Munich on the red clay.

Primarily known as the Bavarian International Tennis Championships, it was first held in 1900 but has been known as the BWM Open since the sponsor took the name in 1990. The event was first staged at Munich’s Iphitos Tennis Club in 1974.

With the backing of Bayerische Motoren Werke, the champion usually receives a brand new car as part of their winning package, and the prize money on offer, while less than we've come to expect, still helps cover the fuel bills.

For 2021 the total BMW Open prize money is €419,470 which is a -20% decrease on the total pool on offer in 2019.

The champion in Munich will take home €21,655, a significant -76% drop compared to what they'd have won in 2019. The runner-up sees a similar drop of -67.3% vs 2019 and will receive €16,000.

Those drops are mirrored across the entirety of the main and qualifying draw and there isn't a single round that doesn't see a double-digit percentage decrease compared to two years ago.

You can see a full breakdown of the 2021 BMW Open prize money in the table below. A percentage change is also provided to compare with last season.
