Benoit Paire has never gone the conventional way. He distances himself from the norm in every way possible – his game is as predictable as his next hairstyle. The 31 year-old Frenchie produces trick-shots almost on-demand and smashes both backhands and rackets. Even though the drop shot is his signature, he’s shown to be an overall solid player by capturing 3 career titles, two of them as recently as 2019. He reached a career-high ranking of No. 18 in 2016, but currently standing at No. 22, he is arguably at the top of his form. Entertainment guaranteed.Watch live
