How the ATP Masters 1000 Paris works


The ATP Masters 1000 Paris is a traditional tennis competition that currently distributes 1000 ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals), ranking points to the winner. The tournament's first edition was held in 1972, reaching its 48th edition this year. We will have all the best players in the world in contention for the cup in the 2022 edition, except for Alexander Zverev, who will not attend due to injury. Emphasizing the main competitors, we will have the big favorite for the title, Novak Djokovic; the current number 1 in the world, Carlos Alcaraz; and the current number 2 in the world, Rafael Nadal, who will attempt an unprecedented title in his career. The ATP Masters 1000 Paris prize pool is €3.084.450, and the tournament in 2022 will run from October 29 to November 6.


Stefanos Tsitsipas

At first, Stefanos Tsitsipas currently occupies number 5 in the ATP ranking, reaching the best position of his career in August 2021, when he was number 3 in the world. After a disappointing performance in the last Grand Slam of the year (US Open), the Greek redeemed himself in the following competitions, where despite not having won more titles, he has made great campaigns, reaching the grand final of the ATP 500 of Astana and the ATP 250 from Stockholm respectively. However, in the last week, he returned to make an average trajectory in the ATP 500 of Vienna. Even being the second big name quoted for the title, ended up not being able to pass even the round of 16 when losing against Borna Coric by 2 sets to 1. Vale, It should be noted that even though he already has two Masters 1000 titles in his career, the current number 5 in the world is still looking for his first in Paris.


Daniel Evans

On the other hand, Daniel Evans currently occupies number 27 in the ATP rankings, reaching the best position of his career in September 2021, when he was number 22 in the world. The 32-year-old experienced British athlete started his professional tour when he was still young, in mid-2016. However, he had never won a significant title until last year, when he managed to win his first ATP World Tour competition in Melbourne, Australia. Since then, he has continued to perform at a high level and has not failed to be well placed in the world ranking of athletes, despite not having lifted any more cups since then. As he was relatively well placed among the other athletes on the circuit, he managed to enter the Paris Masters 1000 without having to compete in the qualifiers. In his first round, he beat American Brandon Nakashima by 2 sets to 1, even though he was considered the "dark horse" by bookmakers.
