STARNBERG, November 1, 2021

Novak Djokovic returns to action for the first time since the US Open at the Rolex Paris Masters, where he will try to win a record-breaking 37th ATP Masters 1000 title. Despite the time off, the 34-year-old Serbian will be confident knowing he has won the tournament five times.But a tough field of the world’s best players, led by defending champion Daniil Medvedev, will try to stop the top seed at the AccorHotels Arena in Bercy, a neighbourhood in the 12th arrondissement of Paris. US Open winner Medvedev, who is the second seed, has already lifted a Masters 1000 trophy this year in Toronto. Other players to watch include third seed Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece and former World No. 1 Andy Murray from Great Britain.This is also a critical event in the FedEx ATP Race To Turin. Casper Ruud of Norway and #NextGenATP Italian Jannik Sinner currently hold the final two qualifying spots for the Nitto ATP Finals, with Hubert Hurkacz from Poland and Briton Cameron Norrie close behind.
