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. It is held in the last week of October at the Accorhotels Arena in the 12th Arrondissement / Bercy area of Paris.
This tournament is the last of the season’s ATP Masters Series and invariably decides where the last remaining qualifying spots for the ATP World Tour Finals will go.
