Kudos Beno

Benoit was focused and enthused, and when he is he proves he can do very well and beat good players. Got broken at *4-3 in the third but then played back to back great games to win the match. His backhand is a serious weapon when on. Really proud of him. Since the USO, he's gotten a lot more mature and it's helped him. He can only go forward from here.

Always good when the white Monfils performs well.

Can someone tell me set point for Zemja in the first set. At 6-6 Paire flubbed an easy winner off a good serve so Zemja served for the set at *7-6. I missed that point

Paire served very well. But he plays too defensive tennis sometimes and his FH need to improve.
I like the game of Zemlja, a solid offensive baseliner with a nice technique but he lacks a big shot to go further in the ranking.

A mentally stable Paire would cruise through Challenger level and do good runs on ATP level.

TT Palmarès

Titles: Astana 2 CH '11, Challenger Tour Finals '11, Kuala Lumpur '12 (w/Dudisela75), Bressuire Futures '13 (w/Marita)

Finals: Fürth CH '11, Orleans CH '11, Petange CH '12, TT Euro '12 (w/Vilnietè)

SF: Australian Open '12, Memphis '12

was it a quick rally and a bad error. was zemlja playing safe and waiting for Paire to screw up. Or was zemlja aggressive and forced the error?
