From 3-3 *40-0 Paire went into a level of muggery never previously reached by humankind.

What a weird match. 9 breaks in the first set. Benoit had 7 DFs and something like 28% first serve percentage in the first set then coasted on serve in the second set until that 3-all 40-love game.

As aggravating as players like Monfils or Gulbis can be, I reckon that Paire has them beat in terms of torturing fans.

Yay Iron Mike.

Although he's never going to reach #1, Russell has a good chance to eclipse his career high ranking of 60 in the weeks to come. To do that at age 34 would be an astounding achievement. What a fighter.

This was a great high quality match.

i like your sense of humor
it would be better though, if you put NOT at the end, so everybody understands it

i am sorry i ve wasted my time on that crap of a match

paire is a lunatic and shouldn´t be allowed on the streets, and russell was chicken shit most of the match
i watched him agains bennetetau, roddick, anderson, levine
easilly his worst match from those five

nice effort, no doubt about it
but a guy who gives no rhythm totally expossed his game
he was rushing, forcing, and making stupid decisions, like those clueless rushing´s to the net
fortunately for him, paire is an idiot

Paire is crazy but it's awesome. I was thinking Paire is the type of player who you love because you know they can be better then what they are, kinda like an abusive spouse who if they just got help, would be the perfect spouse.

congrats iron mike.. top half of the draw is wide open

Can Paire say something offensive or become bffs with Tomic? I need a clean break, I can't stomach being a fan of another head case.

Benoit's 1st serve deserted him in the Tomic match as well so this is becoming a habit. He had a real chance to do some damage in this weak field so he only has himself to blame. He could be a good player if he just sorted his head out.

Well done to Russell who just gets the job done with the minimum of fuss.
