The local super tour event was part of a series of special matches that were arranged by BEC-TERO entertainment from December 11-15, beginning in Chiang Mai, moving to Nakhon Ratchasima, and then Bangkok. At the event in Nakhon Ratchasima, Paradorn met the Australian, Andrew Ely, who was ranked 62 in the world last year 2001.

The local 3 set competition was between Paradorn, world-ranked 16, and the American, Jan Michael Gambill, world-ranked 42. An extra 1 set doubles event was added with Paradorn and Narathon Srichaphan competing against Jan Michael Gambill and Andrew Florence.

American tennis player Jan Michael Gambill, who arrived with Paradorn at Chiang Mai Airport said, “Paradorn has told me that Chiang Mai is the second largest city of Thailand. I can see that the city is beautiful.” About his match with Paradorn he said, “I’ve been preparing for this match and I am sure it will be entertaining for the audience. I’ve competed with him once before, and know his shot is heavy.”

The Paradorn Super Tour 2002 was a special tournament organized to please Thai fans who want the opportunity to watch his skill courtside. Paradorn is considered as one of the best developing tennis players in the world. At the beginning of the year, he ranked number 120. He has surprised many people this year by defeating 11 top world tennis players.
