The indoor hard court season on the ATP circuit begins with the Mosel Open in Metz, France, scheduled for September 19-25. It’s one of two ATP 250 events taking place next week, the other being the San Diego Open in the US.
The Mosel Open is one of the four French ATP 250 tournaments and is very popular. Previous winners include stars like Novak Djokovic, Gael Monfils, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and David Goffin.
Last year’s tournament was won by Polish star Hubert Hurkacz, who is seeded second this time. Hurkacz had a fantastic run at the Canadian Open, finishing second behind Pablo Carreno Busta. But he couldn’t continue the form, succumbing to second-round losses at both Cincinnati and the US Open.
The upcoming 19th edition of the tournament, meanwhile, has world No. 4 Daniil Medvedev as its top seed. With a fourth-round loss to Nick Kyrgios at the US Open, the Russian lost his top spot in the world rankings to 19-year-old Carlos Alcaraz. Medvedev can’t wait to get back on the road to success in Metz.
The Hamburg champion Lorenzo Musetti and the Munich winner Holger Rune are placed third and fourth in this tournament. They have been very inconsistent and hope to build some rhythm at this event.
Each of the four top seeds received a bye for the second round.
2020 US Open winner Dominic Thiem, who is on the comeback trail, will be one of the stars to watch in Metz. The Austrian reached his first final of the year at the Rennes Challenger this week and will come to the Mosel Open with plenty of momentum.
Thiem starts his Metz campaign against French veteran Richard Gasquet.
Sebastian Korda, Ugo Humbert, Alexander Bublik and David Goffin are among the other notable names playing in this tournament. They face Hugo Gaston, Benjamin Bonzi, a qualifier, and Gilles Simon in their respective opening games.
