After seven months on the sidelines, three-time champion Jo-Wilfried Tsonga returns to the ATP World Tour in front of a home crowd at the Moselle Open in Metz. Tsonga will be joined by US Open semi-finalist Kei Nishikori and #NextGenATP Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas.

Former champions Lucas Pouille and Gilles Simon, alongside Richard Gasquet and Adrian Mannarino, lead a strong line-up of home talent. French players have triumphed in seven of the past nine editions of the Moselle Open.
