Rolex Paris Masters
Tennis is written all year long in capital letters in Paris Region!
In the spring, the legendary French Open takes place in the 16th arrondissement of Paris and its bucolic Bois de Boulogne. In the fall, the Rolex Paris Masters, the last Master 1000 of the season and one of the biggest indoor tournaments on the circuit, is held in the Bercy district in the 12th arrondissement of Paris.
The Arena of Champions
It is in the modern setting of the Accor Arena, a few steps away from the Bercy Park, the Bercy Village and the Cinémathèque française designed by the American architect Frank Gehry that the best tennis players in the world, in singles and doubles, measure their talent every year for a week.
Tennis is always a big event with the Spaniard Rafael Nadal, the Swiss Roger Federer, the Serbian Novak Djokovic, the French Jo-Wilfried Tsonga winner of the 2008 edition, the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas, the German Alexander Zverev up to the Russian Danii Medvedev, the title holder, crowned for the first time in Paris in 2020!
Although the line-up is not yet known at the time of writing, there is no doubt that this year again, legends and young prodigies will make us vibrate in this tournament at the cutting edge of modernity. With its lively atmosphere, its light shows that pay homage to Paris and its famous hexagonal tunnel always there to accompany the players until they enter the arena, the Rolex Paris Masters is fully in line with the calendar of major sporting events of the season.
Who will win the trophy this year? To be continued from November 1 to 7, 2021.
