Experts’ Free Paris Masters Tips Here for 2017
Paris Masters, also known as BNP Paribas Masters, is an annual men’s tennis tournament played on the ATP circuit. And the latest free Paris Masters Tips & Predictions for the competition can be had below.
Chronologically, it is the last of the nine Masters 1000 series events which are played in the course of the season.
This tournament plays a crucial role in determining the year end rankings, along with deciding the final few players who will move on to play in the ATP World Tour Finals.
These two events are played in quick succession and mark the end of the ATP tennis season every year. The 2017 Rolex Paris Masters will be played from October 28th – November 5th in AccorHotels Arena, Paris.
The defending champion going into the 2017 Paris Masters is the Brit No. 1 Andy Murray.
Murray had a good run in the 2016 edition of the tournament, but it is quite unlikely if he will be able to repeat the same feat again.
2017 hasn’t been that great of a year for the Brit, especially with a dearth of major titles. Even though he hasn’t suffered a consequential loss in the rankings, it is only a matter of time before he slips down further.
His strange withdrawal from the US Open didn’t make things any easier for him and one can only hope that he doesn’t join the list of players who have already withdrawn from the season.
In such a scenario, we can expect either Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal to take the crown this time around, provided neither of them succumb to injuries.
This is more of a concern for the Swiss, who, despite having a sensational season comprising of two Grand Slams and two Masters titles, is still prone to injuries. In addition to this, there is also a rising wave of next gen players which can’t be ignored.
So who will win the Paris Masters title then?
The likes of Alexander Zverev and Dominic Thiem have relentlessly pushed themselves through the course of this season. Being considerably young in age, they can still go the distance without being troubled by their physical limits.
If there’s anything that the second half of the season has shown, it’s the fact that young lads aren’t to be taken lightly. Denis Shapovalov and Francis Tiafoe are slowly rising on the tour as well and it is only a matter of time before they become a part of this new wave. Maybe, in the Paris Masters, we will see them in all their glory.
Or just maybe, the big guns will rise again. But all in all, it is going to be a sensational event.
