Day two of the 2022 Paris Masters features defending champion Novak Djokovic, world No 3 Casper Ruud as well as British duo Dan Evans and Jack Draper.
In what had been a chaotic year, Djokovic will play in only his fourth ATP Masters 1000 event of the year and his first since winning the Italian Open in May.
However, the 21-time Grand Slam winner is in good form as he is currently on a 16-match unbeaten run in singles tournaments while he is looking to win his fourth title in a row after his successes at Wimbledon, the Tel Aviv Open and Astana Open.
“I feel great in this tournament,” he said ahead of his opener. “As you mentioned, [I’ve had] lots of success. [It] always helps to come into the tournament confident and with some good memories, good emotions on the court. [The] past few times that I played here, I won both tournaments… Hopefully I can continue that run.”
That opener will be against American Maxime Cressey, who defeated Diego Schwartzman in the first round, in what will be their first-ever meeting.
Also in quarter three of the bottom half, third seed Ruud faces French wildcard Richard Gasquet, who beat Alex Molcan on Monday.
Ruud has struggled since finishing runner-up to Carlos Alcaraz at the US Open as he lost in the quarter-final of the Korea Open and made first-round exits in Japan and Basel.
British No 2 Evans will be among the first players in action on Tuesday as he will take on Brandon Nakashima in the first match on Court 2 with the winner going on to face fifth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas.
In quarter one of the top half of the draw, Holger Rune faces Stan Wawrinka in what should be an intriguing clash as the Dane is one of the form players on the ATP Tour after winning the Stockholm Open and finishing runner-up at the Swiss Indoors.
Meanwhile in quarter two, British No 3 Draper faces French wildcard Arthur Rinderknech, who reached the quarter-final in Basel last week. Frances Tiafoe awaits the winner of the Draper-Rinderknech match.
