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.


Novak Djokovic


At first, Novak Djokovic currently occupies number 7 in the ATP ranking, reaching the best position of his career in July 2011, when he occupied number 1 in the world for the first time. The greatest ATP Paris champion of all time arrives for his first match in the tournament without having to play in the first round, as he is one of the top seeds in the table. However, all the leading players in the world ranking are vying, except for Alexander Zverev, the tennis player who is only the sixth main seed. Even so, he remains the big favorite for the title of this edition alongside Carlos Alcaraz. In his most recent appearances, he has been unbeatable, managing to win the last three tournaments played, Wimbledon, ATP 250 Tel Aviv, and ATP 500 Astana, respectively.


Maxime Cressy


On the other hand, Maxime Cressy currently occupies number 34 in the ATP ranking, reaching the best position of his career in August of this year, when he was number 31 in the world. The 25-year-old American is having a great time on the ATP Tour courts because he has an excellent service game (serve). This season, he also won the only title of his journey as a professional, winning the ATP 250 Newport in his native country. For not being one of the seeds, the athlete had to pass in the first round by the experienced Argentine player Diego Schwartzman, where he beat his opponent without major problems by two sets to zero (double 6-3). Also, he only had his serve broken once during the entire match.
