Andy Murray will play either Borna Coric or Fernando Verdasco in his opening match at the Paris Masters.
The British number one has received a bye through to the last 32, but either Coric, who thrashed the Scot in Dubai earlier this year, or experienced left-hander Verdasco await him in his opening match.
The 28-year-old is seeded to face David Goffin and Kei Nishikori before the semi-finals, where Roger Federer could await as both men continue to lock horns over second position in the world rankings.
Novak Djokovic, Stanislas Wawrinka and Rafael Nadal all feature in the opposite side of the draw in the French capital.
British number two Aljaz Bedene is top seed in qualifying and will face French wildcard Gregoire Barrere in his first match on Saturday afternoon.
