Djokovic returned to this tournament five years after being eliminated in the third round in 2019.

In 2020, the BNP Paribas Open was not held due to the novel coronavirus infection (COVID-19), and Djokovic was unable to participate in this tournament for reasons such as not being vaccinated against COVID-19.

Nardi, who defeated Djokovic that day, is a rookie born in 2003 and his highest ranking was 106th last month.

He was originally in a situation where he would not advance to the finals after losing in the preliminary finals of this tournament, but a spot became available due to the withdrawal of a player in the finals, so he participated in his place as ‘Lucky Loser’.

In particular, Thomas Martin Echeverri (30th, Argentina), the 30th seed, withdrew, and was lucky enough to enter the bracket and pass the first round of the finals by default.

Djokovic has never lost to a player ranked 123rd or lower in the world in a major tournament or ATP 1000 series tournament such as the BNP Paribas Open.
