Felix Auger-Aliassime is all set to make his 2nd appearance at the Paris Masters as the young Canadian looks to replicate his Doubles success, having won the title with Hubert Hurkacz at the event in 2020 to the Singles event this time.

Felix after a semis loss at the 2021 US Open to eventual champion Daniil Medvedev, comes to Paris from a quarter-final defeat at the 2021 Vienna Open to eventual champion Alexander Zverev.

Gianluca Mager makes it to the main-draw of the Paris Masters for the first time in his career after grinding out consecutive straight-set wins in the qualifying rounds this year. He failed to reach the main-draw last year after losing in the final qualifying round.

Mager has not had a good time on the Tour recently. After a first round exit from the US Open, his quarter-final run at the 2021 Sofia Open is his best result in a string of results that have seen him exit in the first rounds after winning his qualifiers. He last played in Vienna losing in the 1st round after winning his qualifiers, a repeated pattern in the past few weeks.
