Malisse was an UEs machine, couldn't be arsed to play a decent match against a headcase like Benoit :sad: don't know if ha has a problem with his right hand as he used his left to shake hands with Paire and umpire. WD Paire, lots of dropshots as usual and good BHs.

Paire's the better player right now so not surprising. They're both complete headcases however.

Ive never really seen Paires game except several Youtube videos. I know that he is a headcase. Whats his game like? He kind of resembles a skinny Del Potro, is their game similar?

Not really. Paire has a huge serve, hits a fair few aces and loves a drop shot. Has no back-up plan when things go wrong however.

His style is awkward for a lot of players, but he ruins it constantly by losing his focus.

The best I can describe it is a Mayer with lesser consistency/focus but greater hitting power :lol:

Mayer has a better FH imho, while Paire doen's slice with his BH as much as Mayer.
