New balls, first service! At 11 am, at the Arènes de Metz, the matches of the main draw of the Moselle Open begin, the Metz tennis tournament classified ATP 250. An 18th edition to be experienced every day on France Bleu Lorraine.
After a 2020 edition canceled due to the health situation, the Moselle Open returns. And with, for this 18th edition, a very dense and undecided main draw for the Tennis tournament in Metz, classified ATP 250.
Seven of the top 25 players in the world (in the ranking published on September 13) are registered. Six players who attended, more or less long ago, the World Top 10 are also present in Metz. An eighth is very close to access it …
The latter is called Hubert Hurkacz and he will be seed number one. At 24, the Pole is making a name for himself with the general public. He won the Miami Masters 1000 (the rung just below the Grand Slam tournaments) and reached the semi-finals at Wimbledon in the summer with a three-set victory over Roger Federer.
Hurkacz is naturally the favorite, but the Spaniard Carreño Busta (16th in the world last week), Gaël Monfils (20th) or the promising Australian Alex de Minaur (21st) will have their say. Obviously, the public in Metz will be watching the local, Ugo Humbert, 26th in the world for which it will be the third participation.
Finally, the Moselle Open will be an opportunity to see several big names in French and world tennis. Andy Murray, winner of three Grand Slam tournaments in his career, receives an invitation from the organizers.
The Moselle Open will be live from the Arena every evening, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. on France Bleu Lorraine
