I mean I have always liked Paire I'm not sure why but he is a very entertaining player to watch because you just don't know what's coming next - on his day he has unbelievable weaponry that is top 10 material (In my opinion obviously) but like you say he has mental lapses which if you want to reach the top must be eradicated from his game, hopefully in the next few years he will mature. Or maybe not but hey ho Tennis would be less interesting without players like him.
For me tennis wins in this match anyway as Paire is the more aggressive younger more talented player
