The Paris Masters, also known as the Rolex Paris Masters for sponsorship reasons and previously known as the Paris Open, is the last ATP Masters 1000 tournament in the calendar, and it's one of the most classic Masters events.

The tournament was first held in 1969 at the Stade Pierre de Coubertin, where it was played until 1982. Then, the tournament was not held for three seasons before being moved to the AccorHotels Arena in Paris-Bercy, which is the name the tournament was often referred to, to avoid being mistaken for another popular event held in the city, the Roland Garros.

The Paris Masters was held in Bercy between 1986 and 2024 when the tournament organizers announced a move to a new arena - the Paris La Defense Arena. It marked the end of an era that saw the greatest tennis players of all time lift the title in Paris-Bercy. Even after the move, the tournament will remain in the ATP Masters 1000 category.

The former champions of this hard-court indoors event are the likes of Boris Becker, Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras, and Novak Djokovic, who has won the tournament an incredible and record-breaking seven times, with his seventh triumph coming in 2023.

Alongside the Australian Open, the Paris Masters is the tournament where Djokovic dominated probably the most in his storied career, as he holds multiple records, including for most titles, most finals, most consecutive titles, most matches played, and also most editions played.
