The BNP Paribas Masters is the ninth and final ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event. It’s one of the only Masters neither Roger Federer nor Rafael Nadal ever won. Rafa’s best result is a defeat in final in 2007 (beaten by Nalbandian), and Federer surprisingly never did better than the quarterfinals (in 2002, 2003 and 2008).
Although all the big names of tennis won the Paris Bercy Masters (Becker, Edberg, Sampras, Agassi…), Bercy’s tournament has been pretty disappointing in recent years with late withdrawals and top players early exits, like last year’s Federer stunning first round defeat to Julien Benneteau.

Last year, Novak Djokovic defeated Gael Monfils after an intense 3-sets battle 6–2, 5–7, 7–6(3). It was Novak 5th title of the season, his 16th overall.

It was also Marat Safin‘s last tounament. Marat who captured the title here three times (2000, 2002, 2004) was bowed out of tennis in a second-round exit to 2009 US Open champion Juan Martin del Potro.
