ATP Masters 1000 Paris: Rafael Nadal seeks Paris title in strong field

The 49th edition of the Paris Masters will commence on the 2nd November, with Rafael Nadal still searching for his first Paris Masters title.

The Rolex Paris Masters is the final ATP Masters 1000 event of the season, with many players bidding to win the prestigious title and to clinch the final qualifying spots for the season-ending Nitto ATP finals.

Rafael Nadal last made it to the final of the Paris Masters in 2007 where he lost to Argentine David Nalbandian and the Spaniard will be eager to equal Djokovic’s 36 ATP Masters titles with a win in Paris.

After racking up the necessary points to finish World no.1 for a 6th time in Vienna before a disappointing defeat to Italian Lorenzo Sonego, Novak Djokovic has withdrawn from the tournament.

Where is the tournament held?

The Paris Masters is played indoors at the AccorHotels arena in the town of Bercy.

What dates does the tournament run?

2nd November – 8th November 2020
