The Rolex Paris Masters is the ninth and final ATP Masters 1000 tennis tournament on the 2019 ATP Tour calendar, and it serves as the final battleground in the ATP Race To London as players attempt to clinch the remaining spots at the Nitto ATP Finals.

Four-time champion Novak Djokovic looks to reclaim the ‘Tree of Fanti’, and he leads a field that includes 2011 titlist Roger Federerdefending champion Karen Khachanov and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, the last Frenchman to win the title. Rafael Nadal, who leads Djokovic in the battle for year-end No. 1, will attempt to join David Ferrer as Spanish winners at this Masters 1000 event.

Meanwhile, Daniil Medvedev — winner of back-to-back Masters 1000 titles — will attempt to continue his run of form as he eyes his seventh straight tour-level final. Only two other singles players, Djokovic and Andy Murray, have completed the Shanghai-Paris sweep.
