The BMW Open is an annual outdoor clay court tournament held in Munich, Germany. The prize money has been around €400,000 for a while now, and the organizers even upped this amount for the 2015 event.
The total prize money this year will be €426,605. That amount makes the BMW Open one of the more lucrative ATP 250 events. The players can only win a bigger prize pool than that at some ATP 500, Masters 1000 and Grand Slam events. This year’s Munchen Open will hold special meaning in itself, as this will be the 100th edition of the tournament.
The reigning champion is Martin Klizan who will try to defend his title, although will only be seeded 7th. He won the tournament in 2014 as a massive underdog and although climbed the rankings nicely since, with players like Andy Murray and Gael Monfils one simply cannot expect to be seeded that high.
Out of the eight top seeds, everybody is a multiple ATP titlist. If we take a look at tournament history, we can conclude that the event doesn’t really have that dominating champion that most ATP tournaments do. The BMW Open was a lot more balanced in the last 25 years, with remarkably only three multiple winners during that time span.
Philipp Kohlschreiber (2007, 2012), Nikolay Davydenko (2004, 2011) and Franco Squillari (1999, 2000) have all been two-time winners here. The Scot Andy Murray and the French Gael Monfils will probably be the biggest favorites for the 2015 event.
