The first ever Open de Paris, was in October 1986 and was won by 18 year old Boris Becker, who by then, had already won Wimbledon twice! The aim was to make it the biggest, and most important, indoor tournament in the world!
Drawing crowds of 82,117 spectators over the seven days, made the inaugural Open de Paris a huge success.
In the early 1990’s the tournament stepped up a level, with the top players from around the world battling for the title each year. In 2000 it was re-branded as the Paris Tennis Masters Series, and is now known as the Rolex Paris Masters.
Since it is the final ATP Masters 1000 tournament of the season, it invariably decides where the last remaining qualifying spots for the ATP World Tour Finals will go.
It is held in the last week of October at the Accorhotels Arena in the 12th Arrondissement / Bercy area of Paris.
Paris has the reputation of being the most beautiful & romantic city, and is a global centre for art, fashion, food, design and culture. A large part of the city, including the River Seine, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Paris has the second highest number of Michelin restaurants in the world and contains numerous iconic landmarks, such as the Eiffel Tower.
