The Rolex Paris Masters could settle the issue of the last two vacancies for the ATP Finals 2021. The closest places to Turin at the moment are Norway’s Casper Ruud and Italy’s Yannick Sener. The chase group is led by Hubert Hurkacz, followed by Cameron Norrie. Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime also has a chance, but needs a stunning result in the French capital in the form of a final or title.

The Briton increased its ratings on Monday. The tennis player, ranked at No. 10, did not give any chances to Argentine Federico Delbonis, who is putting in a terrible performance on the hard courts this year. The tennis player from the British Isles confidently won 6:2, 6:1. In doing so, he achieved his 100th victory in the round and quickly reported for the second round. Now he is only 55 points behind Hurkacz, who will start the fray in Paris on Wednesday, and his opponent will be Jan-Lennard Struve or Tommy Poole. On the other hand, Serbian Filip Krajinovic or American Riley Opelka will stand in Nouri’s way.

Rudd, who had the best chance of playing in the 2021 ATP Finals (among the players remaining in the fight), was marked with a “six” in Paris and bid farewell in the first round. On Tuesday evening he will face his first duel, and his opponent will be Alexander Bublik. The Kazakh turned the fate of the meeting with Daniel Evans and defeated the Briton 2: 6, 7: 5, 7: 5.

Aslan Karasev left the race to participate in the Champions Tour on Monday. The 2021 Australian Open semi-finals still had arithmetic chances of playing in Turin, but she lost them after defeating Sebastian Korda. The young American defeated the Russian 6:2, 6:7 (9), 7:6 (5) after three hundred matches. The next contender for the US representative will be Croatian Marin Cilic or Spain’s Alejandro Davidovic Fokina.

The competitors were met in the second stage by the highest ranked participants of the Paris Championship. ATP Ranking Leader Novak Djokovic will face Marton Voxovic on Tuesday. The Hungarian confidently advanced ahead of Fabio Fognini, who benefited from medical intervention at the end of the first set. With the treatments in place, the Italian made two second-half lead, saving the match in the tiebreak and leading into the third. He even passed in it for victory, but the Fucsovics got back into the game and it was he who finally won the duel 6:1, 6:7 (6), 7:6 (5).

On Monday, Djokovic warmed up with a doubles performance. In the first round, he and fellow countryman Philip Krajinovic defeated Australians Alex de Minaur and Luke Savile 4:6, 6:4, 10-7. For the Serbs, this is a form of testing ahead of the Davis Cup final tournament, which will take place in early November and December.

Danio Medvedev, ranked number two, did not have to wait so long for his opponent. Ilya Ivashka will stand in the way of the Russian on Wednesday. The Belarusian player finished the match in two sets with Spaniard Albert Ramos 6: 3, 7: 6 (2). He also met opponent Alexander Zverev, a ‘four’, who enjoyed the title in Vienna on Sunday. He will face German Dusan Lajovic, who defeated American Mackenzie MacDonald 6:3, 6:4. “Sasa” has a balance with the Serbian 3-0 in the round, because he defeated him three times in the Grand Slam competition (Roland Garros 2018, 2019 and Australian Open 2021).
