Beating the top 3 seeds to win title #1, some high quality serving towards the end of the match, top class drop shot on set point in the tiebreak, too good Benoit :worship:

From tanking a challenger a few weeks ago to straight-setting the top three seeds to win his first title :silly:

Benoit is on fire. When he plays like this week, it's really difficult to stop him. No losing a set. Great! :yeah:
I hope he will keep this form for the next tournaments.

Terrific match from Ben! :cheerleader: And a very well deserved 1st title this week! :bowdown:

He was so aggressive and never stopped fighting, saving a couple of set points against him in the 1st set before closing it out. And he never gave up in the epic 6th game of the 2nd set, just kept going for it and kept fighting until he got the break. It's really a pleasure to see him play this well, he has such a lovely game to watch.

And he wins the title without even dropping a set this week! :cool: Now up to #42 in the live rankings! Allez!!!! :)

Great level of tennis whole week from Paire so congrats to him, but some of those drop shots were... he should focus on tactics, because some of his choices on the court are rivaling those of Monfils who is known as main clown of ATP

OMG no. I'm happy for him, but I just dumped him as a fave on account of his terrible attitude and recent tanking incident :help: and he goes and does this :help:.

I honestly never thought this would ever happen for Benoit - surely he couldn't go a full week without having one of his usual meltdowns somewhere :lol:. Well, I was wrong. I'm not coming crawling back (he still has to earn that by proving it's not a fluke and he really has hope of growing up) but this is a good start.

This was a coming of age performance by Paire. :worship: It would be amazing if he could play like this more regularly.
