A shame how Bercy ended for Benoit
. But I think it's best we all move on and have high hopes for next season
Does that article have any interesting points for non-French speakers?
This quote is astonishing...
"There are guys who come on the court and know that they will win. Me, never. And when I make my first game, I'm happy because I know I'm not going to lose 6-0, 6-0."
It just proves how much of tennis is in the mind. Benoit has absolutely no idea how talented he is.
It is not other players who are defeating him, but his lack of confidence. But Gasquet suffered from similar issues and managed to turn it around and become a very consistent player. I hope Paire does too - he is such a talent and seems like a nice guy. It's good that he is so close to Wawrinka, hopefully that will also help.
Hopefully 2014 will be Paire's year. It would be great if he was able to get involved in Davis Cup somehow because he is a very strong team player... In Stockholm, Stan told him to go beat Raonic for him, said he was relying on him... and Benoit went out and did it for Stan.
