The 2023 Paris Masters will take place from October 30 - November 5 at the AccorHotel Arena. Here is our preview of the final ATP Masters 1000 of the year, with Novak Djokovic, Carlos Alcaraz, and Daniil Medvedev leading a field packed with top-ranked talent.
After their epic battles earlier in the season, many fans are eagerly anticipating another clash between World No. 1 Djokovic and No. 2 Alcaraz. The pair last met in the final of the Cincinnati Masters in August, with the Serbian player emerging victorious after 3 hours and 49 minutes.
In order to reach another encounter in the final of this tournament, Djokovic will start his campaign against the winner of the match between Miomir Kecmanovic and Tomas Martin Etcheverry. Meanwhile, Alcaraz will have to move past either Cameron Norrie or Alexandre Muller.

Medvedev, Sinner, Rune, and rest of Top 10 set to play

Moreover, third seed Medvedev will kick off his campaign against either Lorenzo Musetti or Grigor Dimitrov. The 27-year-old fought back from a set down against Dimitrov at the Vienna Open this week, winning 3-6, 6-2, 6-4, meaning a clash between them in Paris could result in another thriller.
Fourth seed Jannik Sinner is set to start his run against either a qualifier or Mackenzie McDonald. The Italian is on Djokovic's side of the draw, which also contains fifteenth seed Ben Shelton.
The young American has soared up the ATP Ranking in recent months and will be aiming to continue his success here. He will begin his run in the first round against Alejandro Davidovich Fokina.
As the rest of the Top 10 take to the courts, several will be thinking about the remaining spots available for the Nitto ATP Finals in Turin. Djokovic, Alcaraz, Medvedev, Sinner, and Andrey Rublev have all qualified, meaning there are three more places available.
Stefanos Tsitsipas, Alexander Zverev, and Holger Rune are the main contenders. The Greek player will start his campaign in Paris against either Felix Auger-Aliassime or Jan Lennard Struff, while Zverev will take on a qualifier. World No. 6 Rune will face the winner of the match between Stan Wawrinka and Matteo Arnaldi.
