History


In the 1980s, Metz hosted the Grand Prix tournament five times (every two years). Grand Tennis returned to Metz in 2003, when the tournament previously held in Toulouse was moved there. The tournament in Toulouse was discontinued after an explosion at a local nitrogen fertilizer plant severely damaged the city's sports complex. The new tournament was given the basic ATP International category. The venue is the newly built Arènes de Metz Sports Complex, with a main court seating capacity of 4,500.
The tournament director is former professional tennis player Julien Boutté.


Winners and finalists


Over the years, the tournament in Metz was dominated by the home team. The French have won five singles titles in a row from 2009 to 2013, including Gilles Simon and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga twice each, and two more French victories came in the first draws of the tournament. With a win in 2019, Tsonga holds the record for most singles victories, bringing his total to four. Second is also Frenchman Gilles Simon, who took his third title in 2018.
In 2010 for the first time in the history of the doubles tournament there was not a single local pair in the finals.
