The Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy (POPB) was inaugurated in February 1984 by cyclists from the Paris Six-Day event. It hosted an exhibition tennis match in 1985, and then the first ever Open de Paris-Bercy in 1986. The avowed aim of the event was for it to quickly become the biggest and most important indoor tournament in the world. The first winner was Germany’s Boris Becker, at the age of just 18 years and 11 months – by which time he already had two Wimbledon titles to his name.
From the beginning of the 1990s, the tournament began to step up a level, with the world’s top players consistently appearing. Guy Forget was the first Frenchman to take the title, in 1991, after an epic five-set tussle over Pete Sampras (USA).
In 2000, the tournament was renamed as the BNP Paribas Masters. Russia’s Marat Safin was the first winner under the new name. The following year there was a second French success, courtesy of Sébastien Grosjean. In 2007, Argentina’s David Nalbandian defeated Rafael Nadal. The following year, a third Frenchman, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, won the title.
The Rolex Paris Masters, as it is the final ATP Masters 1000 tournament of the season, invariably decides where the last remaining qualifying spots for the ATP World Tour Finals will go. It can also be a crucial stage in the race for the No.1 ranking in the world: Pete Sampras (1995), Marat Safin (2000), Andy Roddick (2003), Novak Djokovic (2012) and Andy Murray (2016) were crowned world number 1 during the tournament.
The Rolex Paris Masters is run by the French Tennis Federation, with Cedric Pioline acting as tournament director.
