After 31 months, here we are for the first-ever Fall edition of this prestigious tournament.
Unfortunately, many of the usual stars will not be here this time around. But there are still other top players participating and plenty of excitement surrounding this event, which is widely regarded as the unofficial 5th major.
Here. We. Go. @BNPPARIBASOPEN! 🎾 🔥— Bailey Arredondo (@baileyarredondo) October 4, 2021
