The tournament evolved from the French Covered Court Championships. In the open era it was held at the Stade Pierre de Coubertin until 1982. [1] In 1989 it was upgraded to become one of the Grand Prix Tour (Grand Prix Super Series). The event is usually the final tournament on the tour before the season-ending ATP Finals. Because of its sponsorship, the event was officially known from 2003 to 2016 as BNP Paribas Masters, and from 2017 as the Rolex Paris Masters. Prior to the Tennis Masters Series replacing the ATP Super 9 in 2000, the event was known as the Paris Open. It is also often referred to as the Paris Indoor event in reference to both the facts that the other tennis event held in Paris, the French Open is held outdoors, and that since 2009, it is the only Masters 1000 tournament which is played indoors. From 1970 until 1986 there had usually been three indoor events amongst the top nine tournaments (then called the Grand Prix Championship Series), with there being four indoor events plus the year-end Championships from 1978 to 1980. From 1987 until 2008 there were two indoor tournaments at the Masters level.

The surface used to be one of the fastest courts in the world which rewarded bold attacking tennis, but since 2011 it has followed the general slow-down of most courts on the tour. [2]

Ilie Năstase, Andre Agassi, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic are the only players to have ever won both Parisian tournaments (Bercy and the French Open). Federer won the French Open in 2009 and Bercy in 2011, Djokovic won Bercy in 2009, 2013–15, 2019 and the French Open in 2016 and Andre Agassi won both in 1999 like Ilie Năstase in 1973. In 2015, Marcelo Melo and Ivan Dodig won the doubles events at both tournaments.

To date, Novak Djokovic is the only player to successfully defend his title in Paris (2013–15).

Djokovic–Federer rivalry

The Djokovic–Federer rivalry is a modern-day tennis rivalry between Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer, widely regarded as two of the greatest tennis players of all time.

The Open Era is the current era of professional tennis. It began in 1968 when the Grand Slam tournaments allowed professional players to compete with amateurs, ending the division that had persisted since the dawn of the sport in the 19th century. The first open event was the 1968 British Hard Court Championships held in April, followed by the inaugural open Grand Slam event, the 1968 French Open, a month later. Unless otherwise sourced, all records are based on data from the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP), the International Tennis Federation (ITF), and the official websites of the four Grand Slam tournaments. All rankings-related records are based on ATP Rankings, which began in 1973. The names of active players appear in boldface.

The 2013 Rafael Nadal tennis season, regarded as one of the greatest comeback seasons of all time, officially began on February 5 with the ATP Tournament in Viña del Mar in Chile. He lost in the final, but rebounded with victories at São Paulo and Acapulco. He then won the first Masters 1000 event of the year at Indian Wells. Nadal skipped Miami, and finished Runner up to Novak Djokovic at Monte-Carlo. He followed that with victories at Barcelona, Madrid, and then Rome. At the French Open, he defeated Djokovic in an epic semifinal that went to 9–7 in the fifth set, before defeating David Ferrer to win his 8th Roland Garros crown. He was then stunned by Steve Darcis in the first round of Wimbledon, in what would be his only defeat prior to the semifinals all season. Limping in the final set, many people thought his season was over, however a strong summer saw Nadal win Montreal, Cincinnati, and then the U.S. Open, thus clinching the Emirates Airlines U.S. Open Series. This granted him 3.6 million US dollars in prize money, the most money earned by a tennis player at a single tournament.
