The Rolex Paris Masters is over, now it’s time to take stock of this latest tournament.

The 33rd edition of the Parisian Masters 1000 offered a wealth of excitement, surprises and emotion. We pinpoint the five most unforgettable moments of the Rolex Paris Masters 2018:


1- Khachanov, the revelation

One of the most memorable things about this year’s tournament was Karen Khachanov’s rise to power, which saw him claim his rightful place as one of the leaders of the up-and-coming generation, the “pretenders to the throne”. Against John Isner, the “Russian Bear” battled heroically for 2 hours and 28 minutes, falling to the floor on Court No.1 when he hit match point home. 

This exploit was repeated this Sunday on Centre Court, when “Djan” claimed the title of Rolex Paris Masters 2018 champion, astonishing the tennis world with his strength and talent. We wish him a future filled with victories as, let us not forget, glorious careers often begin here at the Rolex Paris Masters, in the AccorHotels Arena…


2- The players’ entrance shows

When the players step out onto the court at the Rolex Paris Masters, the crowd goes wild! This year once again, the players’ entrance show – a veritable hallmark of the Parisian Masters 1000 that symbolises the players’ passage from backstage into the spotlight – treated spectators to some highly memorable moments. 


3- Roger Federer’s long-awaited return to Paris

Absent since 2015, Roger Federer made his Parisian comeback at the Rolex Paris Masters, to the great delight of both the spectators and “Fedex” himself! “It was definitely worth coming to Paris,” he declared. The Swiss maestro’s performance against Novak Djokovic on Saturday can only be described as a tennis masterclass. Though he stayed tight-lipped about his future schedule, Roger Federer has marked the Parisian tournament down as a red-letter event.


4- Sacha’s dream entrance

The Rolex Paris Masters’ traditional “Dream Entrance” shone the spotlight on a boy named Sacha this year! This young player from Sommierois tennis club caught everyone’s attention when he accompanied the world number 7, Marin Cilic, onto the court.

At the players’ request, the young boy came back to the Rolex Paris Masters two days later to meet the Croatian player backstage. Their tender and emotional reunion was shared extensively on social media.


5- Novak Djokovic recovers his world number 1 crown

Novak Djokovic should not be ashamed of his performance at the Parisian Masters 1000, as it allowed him to step back into the top spot in the ATP rankings. Having clinched a remarkable victory against an astounding Federer on Saturday, Nole will now continue his comeback on the prestigious courts of the world tennis stage.
