Benoit Paire

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.

Skills

Backhand

Be careful, because when the backhand strikes, it strikes.

Trick Shot

Paire doesn’t like to play by the rules. The fans are in luck, because that means plenty of trick shots are on the menu.

Sneak in to the Net

Paire has a talent: coming to the net when nobody expects it.

Signature shot

THE TWEENER FACING THE NET

Have you seen it? Paire likes to spice things up every once in a while with irrational tweeners, facing the net. Bonus style points if it’s done mid-air.
