Yes, I agree. Some encouraging signs. He had the trainer out early in the 1st set for his right foot - his toes or something near the front of the foot seemed to be bothering him - but the problem didn't last long, so hopefully it's nothing.

He played better as the match went on, just a shame at the end to play a loose game of errors and get broken at 5-5 in the 2nd. But so great to see him back playing again.

And he was happy too. "Very happy to be back on the court!"

Super content d'être de retour sur le terrain!! Ça fait plaisir et du bien à la tête!! Bravo @andy_murray et maintenant ALLEZ @alizecornet
EDIT: They lost against GB 2-1 in Hopman Cup, after losing the mixed doubles against Murray/ Watson 6-4 2-6 10-8. France still have Poland and Australia to play.

It's not good news to lose like that and not great to say he find Ymer quite bad

PAIRE EN MANQUE

Mais s'il fallait en désigner un pour aller au tableau effectuer l'exposé sur la frustration, alors Benoît Paire était le client idéal. O.K., Elias Ymer est un joueur suédois d'origine éthiopienne au tennis plutôt très propre. O.K., il s'entraîne au sein de l'académie de Magnus Norman et ça ne peut pas faire de mal. O.K., il a franchi un tour à Chennai la semaine dernière. Mais il reste, à dix-huit ans, un joueur très tendre, 212e mondial, contre lequel Paire ne peut décemment pas se retrouver mené 6-0, 2-0 comme ce fut le cas hier en fin d'après-midi. « Surtout face à un adversaire que je n'ai pas trouvé très bon, insista d'ailleurs le Français, finalement battu 6-0, 6-4. Mais pour mon premier match depuis longtemps (il avait disputé quelques parties correctes à la Hopman Cup la semaine passée, mais dans des conditions de jeu moins officielles), je n'ai vraiment pas montré de bonnes choses. Bien sûr que je ne m'attendais pas à enchaîner qualifié-quarts ici. Bien sûr que ça fait partie du jeu mais je suis très déçu. Ça va être une année compliquée. »

Il y a un an, Paire était le numéro 4 du tennis français et le numéro 24 du classement mondial. Un an, c'est long, surtout quand on a un genou qui pèse une tonne et vous empêche d'avancer pendant des mois… L'Avignonnais sait déjà qu'il sera 160e au lendemain de cet Open d'Australie. « Il a pris une grosse claque dans la gueule, résumait son coach, Lionel Zimbler. Maintenant il faut vraiment qu'il retrouve 100 % de son corps. Son genou, ça va à peu près, même si c'est un jour oui, un jour non. Mais psychologiquement, il a encore très peur de le solliciter. » Lui aussi aurait bien besoin d'une éclaircie.

No, that seems like Ben's own frustration at losing. It's good for Ymer that he had a decent run at AO.

As soulage mentioned, Ben is now playing Bressuire, trying to build confidence in his game and his knee.

Mark Nixon @markalannixon · Jan 15
Lionel Zimbler, Benoit Paire's coach, in l'Équipe: "His knee is almost there, even if it's one day yes, one day no. But mentally he's afraid to really test it."

Hopefully the knee is not getting any worse.

Thanks to Somby for the Bressuire Futures results:

R1: Benoit PAIRE (FRA) [1] d. 6-3 6-4 Medy CHETTAR (FRA)

R2: Benoit PAIRE (FRA) [1] d. 6-4 6-4 Purav RAJA (IND)

EDIT: QF Benoit PAIRE (FRA) [1] d. 7-6(7) 4-6 2-0 Retired Laurent ROCHETTE (FRA)

EDIT: SF Benoit PAIRE (FRA) [1] d. 6-4 6-4 Hugo NYS (FRA)

Ben plays Texeira in the final on Sunday.

Crazy scoreline, but Ben has won the Bressuire Futures event today, beating Texeira 6-3, 0-6, 6-2

Hopefully this will give him some faith in his knee and a big confidence boost. He's won 5 matches this week. Allez!
