Re: USO R2 Kohlschreiber def. Paire 6-7 6-3 3-6 6-2 7-6
Paire is an interesting character. I've seen a few of his previous matches but he was even more crazy in this one. The Eurosport 2 commentators were spot-on about his mannerisms, as the guy can't keep his focus for two consecutive points. His celebrations are also ridiculously over the top, he should have saved those for when he actually won the match, but instead he fired himself up only to get broken serving for the match. His performance in the TP was also pitiful. Nevertheless, he's a super talented guy with an amazing backhand and great touch at net, so I hope he becomes a tour regular. Would add some entertainment to the tour to have Monfils and a white version of Monfils.
Ultimately Kohli winning should be a good thing and he will probably give Isner a better match. Paire would have gotten frustrated and gone apeshit after a few aces went whizzing past his head.
