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 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.


Holger Rune

At first, Holger Rune currently occupies the position of number 18 in the ATP ranking, having this the best position achieved in his career. The 19-year-old Dane is enjoying the best season of his short journey, which began mid-2020. He won two relevant titles this year alone, ATP Munich and Stockholm, respectively. In the current competition, he started beating his great tennis idol, Dane Stan Wawrinka, by upset. In the match, he had great resilience after losing the first set 4-6, winning the following sets in partial double tie-breaks in more than two hours and thirty minutes of the match. In the round of 16, he surprised by facing an athlete as qualified as the Polish Hubert Hurcakz and not having his service broken once during the match; on the contrary, he managed to break his opponent's serve four times and win 7-5 and 6-1 respectively.


Andrey Rublev

On the other hand, Andrey Rublev currently occupies number 9 in the ATP ranking, reaching the best position of his career in September 2021, when he was number 5 in the world. As one of the tournament's top seeds, the Russian ended up advancing from the first round without facing any opponents. In his debut, he met the excellent American server John Isner, beating his opponent with great ease. Even though Isner is an expert in service games, that wasn't a problem for the current number 5 in the world, who managed to break the American's service three times and converted all his 9 games of serve, closing the match in partials of 6- 2 and 6-3 respectively, in a duel that lasted just an hour and a minute.
