July and August are always funky months in professional tennis betting because of the sheer unpredictability the calendar brings.
In the winter and spring, tennis odds are uniform and predictable. There is the hardcourt season and the Latin American Golden Swing. Near the beginning of April, the European clay season begins, which turns into grass season after the French Open.
After Wimbledon, though, the calendar gets less neat. Players are tired after six months of tennis and begin taking weeks off. Sometimes it’s a clay court; sometimes it’s outdoor hardcourt; sometimes it’s indoor hardcourt. Last week, there was even another grass tournament at the Newport Open.
This week’s central tournament focuses on Germany’s Hamburg European Open. While it’s not a major tournament, it is the first 500-level get-together for tour players since they first met on the London lawn, nearly a month ago.
How Much Does the Winner of the Hamburg European Open Make?
The winner of the men’s singles tournament at the 2023 Hamburg European Open will receive a cash prize of €342,500, or roughly $380,000.
The total cash purse for ATP Hamburg is €1,831,515, or just over $2 million.
The Hamburg European Open features both a men’s tournament and a women’s tournament, so there is a whole second prize purse for the WTA. However, because this is a 500-level event for the ATP and a 250-level event for the WTA, the women’s prize money is noticeably smaller.
The winner of the women’s singles tournament at the 2023 Hamburg European Open will receive a cash prize of €29,760, or roughly $33,000.

Hamburg European Open Schedule

Hamburg European Open Draw
As a clay tournament, ATP Hamburg features plenty of household clay names like Lorenzo Musetti, Francisco Cerundolo, and Alejandro Davidovich Fokina. The draw is deep with Spaniards, Brazilians, and Chileans, alongside several German wild cards.
Casper Ruud is the No. 1 seed and will be a difficult player to overwhelm. The Norwegian is 74-19 on clay since the start of 2021. That includes back-to-back appearances in the French Open championship round.
On the women’s side, the No. 1 seed in the tournament is Croat Donna Vekic, who is among the most vulnerable top seeds I’ve seen at any tournament all year. Clay is likely her worst professional surface; she has just a 54% career win percentage on dirt.
Bettors should seek out tennis odds for underdogs in the top half of the draw, as an early loss from Vekic should create a power vacuum. One name to watch is unseeded Italian Martina Trevisan.
The No. 2 seed, Egyptian Mayar Sherif, should be competitive throughout the draw.
