Paris Masters Players 2018

Greats of the game Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, alongside defending champion Jack Sock, lead the field at the Rolex Paris Masters as the last Masters 1000 Series event of the season takes place from 29 October-4 November 2018.

He won't be the top seed, but all eyes will be on four-time Rolex Paris Masters champion Novak Djokovic as he continues his furious pursuit of the year-end world no. 1 ranking - something that seemed unlikely, if not downright impossible, when the Serb was down to world no. 22 in June before turning his year around in spectacular style. With the Wimbledon and US Open titles under his belt, not to mention completing the career Masters Slam in Cincinnati and picking another Masters for his trouble in Shanghai, Djokovic will now go for his third straight Masters 1000 Series title in Paris as he continues to try to overtake Nadal for the year-end world no. 1 ranking.

Nadal, meanwhile, hasn't been on the court since retiring against Juan Martin del Potro at the US Open, with his troublesome knees keeping him out of competition during the Asian swing. But he is planning to return in Paris, where he's never won the title - or even reached the final since finishing runner-up to David Nalbandian in 2007. With the incentive of trying to keep Djokovic from seizing the world no. 1 ranking, could this be his year in Paris?

Roger Federer, whose solitary title in Paris came in 2011, is looking for his first Masters 1000 Series title of the year after warming up in Basel. The trio are joined by defending champion Jack Sock, whose run to the Paris Masters title was improbable and stunning in 2017 - could Sock, who is having a terrible year on the singles court, turn it all around in Bercy once more?

Alexander Zverev, who at 21 has already amassed three Masters 1000 Series titles, should be a formidable force in the Paris Masters field - but he hasn't got the extra incentive of trying to qualify for the Nitto ATP Finals, unlike many of the big names who will still be in contention in Paris and looking for that extra push to get them over the line. Australian Open runner-up Marin Cilic, Wimbledon runner-up Kevin Anderson and French Open runner-up Dominic Thiem are all in qualifying position but haven't quite guaranteed their spot yet, while Miami Masters champion John Isner, Kei Nishikori, Borna Coric, Kyle Edmund, Fabio Fognini and Stefanos Tsitsipas are all trying to leapfrog those above them into qualifying position - something they could do with an inspired run in Paris.

It's a recipe for excitement and unpredictability with the last Masters 1000 Series event of the year bringing the season (for most) to a thrilling finish as it plays out in Paris from 29 October-4 November.

About the Paris Masters

The Rolex Paris Masters tournament, which is staged at the Palais Omnisports in Bercy and was launched back in 1968, marks the last regular event on the ATP calendar. It takes place following all of the action in Basel and Vienna and in the lead up to the season finale in London. It is also the last out of nine Masters 1000 events on the annual schedule and the final battleground in the Emirates ATP Race to London for the season-ending championships featuring the year’s best eight players.

Also known as the BNP Paribas Masters and Paris Open over the years as the tournament was placed in multiple categories such as the Grand Prix Tour from 1989 and the ATP Super 9 series of events that was replaced by the Tennis Masters series in 2000, the event is currently named the Rolex Paris Masters for sponsorship reasons. It is the only ATP Masters 1000 tournament to be played exclusively indoors since 2009.

Some of the biggest names in tennis have captured the Rolex Paris Masters title over the years. Novak Djokovic has won the tournament more than any other man, claiming the 2009 edition and three straight events from 2013-15, while his former coach Boris Becker has collected the silverware on three occasions, including 1986, 1989 and 1992. Russian firebrand Marat Safin won three of his five Masters Series titles in Paris, while Djokovic is the only man in history to successfully defend his Paris title, let alone win the three in a row he captured in 2013-15. Tom Okker, Brian Gottfried, Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi are the only other men to have won multiple Paris titles.

Due to its position in the schedule at the end of the season, the Rolex Paris Masters has been the Masters tournament most likely to see surprise champions, with the likes of Sebastian Grosjean, Tim Henman, Tomas Berdych, Nikolay Davydenko, David Nalbandian, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Robin Soderling and David Ferrer all winning the tournament since the turn of the century, while there’s also been several shock finalists, with Jerzy Janowicz’s run in 2012 from qualifying perhaps the biggest shock of them all.

Although Jack Sock certainly rivals Janowicz’s 2012 run, especially when you consider the extraordinary circumstances surrounding his triumph. Sock was trailing Kyle Edmund of Great Britain 1-5 in the deciding set of his opening round match, but he sensationally fought back to win before riding that momentum all the way to a first Masters 1000 title, defeating fellow surprise finalist Filip Krajinovic and securing his spot at the season-ending Nitto ATP Finals in London as a result.

The Rolex Paris Masters is also the final battleground for players hoping to secure their tickets to the season-ending Nitto ATP Finals in London, which always ensures for thrilling storylines all across the draw.
