Djokovic Headlines Paris Doubles Field

Sinner/Wawrinka, Auger-Aliassime/Korda and Lehecka/Shelton also to compete

Novak Djokovic will headline a star-studded doubles field at the Rolex Paris Masters, where he will compete alongside fellow Serbian Miomir Kecmanovic for the first time.

The six-time Paris singles champion has played doubles at Bercy on three previous occasions (2008, 2016, 2021) with three different partners. It will be Djokovic’s fourth doubles appearance of the season (also Adelaide-1, Cincinnati, Davis Cup).

The 36-year-old is not the only singles star who will take to the doubles court at the season’s final ATP Masters 1000 event. Karen Khachanov will play with Andrey Rublev, Jannik Sinner will compete with Stan Wawrinka, Felix Auger-Aliassime will partner Sebastian Korda and Jiri Lehecka will team with Ben Shelton.

Other teams to watch include US Open champions Rajeev Ram/Joe Salisbury and Marcelo Melo/Alexander Zverev. The Rolex Paris Masters will be played from 30 October through 5 November.
