The 2023 Paris Masters is the final Masters 1000 event on the tennis calendar and is expected to bring the curtain down to another terrific season.
Except for the top eight in the ATP Race who will vie to win the prestigious ATP Finals in Turin, this tournament is where all the stories throughout the season will have their exclamation point. As such, the prize money for this year's tournament has been increased by approximately 6.7%.
Last year, the prize money purse returned to pre-pandemic levels, and the tournament organizers have flexed their financial muscle to reward players handsomely for this year's edition right from the opening round, where there will be a substantial increment.
56 players will fill the slots in the singles field, led by World No. 1 Novak Djokovic who has won the tournament a record six times. The remaining ATP Finals spots tend to be decided in the final few weeks of the season, and some players could leave it late. So Bercy could be a decisive tournament in that regard.
The likes of Carlos Alcaraz and Daniil Medvedev will be searching for the momentum before going to Turin. Alcaraz in particular will be motivated to excel at the Paris Masters after retiring in the quarterfinals stage at last year's event.
Looking at this year's purse, the winner of the 2023 Paris Masters will collect a paycheck worth €892,590 which is an additional €56,235 from when Holger Rune sensationally lifted the title last year. As well as winning the title, the champion will also add 1,000 ranking points.
The finalist can look forward to a sum of €487,420 in addition to a healthy 600 points. Semifinalists will also get a pay rise, with each pocketing €266,530 and 360 points. Those who bow out in the quarterfinals stage will make €145,380 and 180 points.
The tournament's record prize money will be mirrored across all rounds. So those players who win at least two main draw matches stand to gain €77,760 and 90 potentially priceless points. Prize money and points allocation in the main draw begins in the first round.
First-round losers should expect to fill their accounts with funds in excess €23,100 and 10 points. To see the full prize money and points distribution for the 2023 Paris Masters, be sure to check it out below.
