Montpellier R2: Paire d. Darcis 4-6 7-6(11) 6-4

what a match... Darcis was the better player imho.
Pair had a 5-*1 lead in the second set tb and darcis won something like 5 points in a row, then Paire wasted a couple of SPs only to win it thanks to a dead net cord in his favour.
Darcis gifted the early break in the third. Had to save tons of BPs not to fall behid of two breaks and missed the easiest shot ever at *5-4 0-15 when Paire was serving fot the match

Benoit hit more winners. He was the better player.

Paire was leading 5:0 in the tiebreak, shortly after it was 5:5 . Saved match point with a dead net cord at what most probably was *9:10 in the tiebreak almost Hewitt-Hrbaty Montreal 2007 style. Legend.

Never a dull moment with that guy. Didn't watch all of the match, but it looked great from what I saw.

Yeah, thought so too. Even when he was playing garbage, he kept plugging away, very positive.

Great to see Paire dig deep and get the victory here, needs to continue displaying behaviour like this to keep moving up the rankings.

Tie-break GOAT Darcis losing one is pretty shocking.

Beno is well known for his fighting spirit, no?
