This Wednesday, May 26, 2021, Benoît Paire once again found himself at the center of a controversy. While he faced Jaume Munar (80th player in the world) in the round of 16 of the Parma Tournament, the Frenchman preferred to leave the court in the middle of the game (after having repeatedly ranted against himself), claiming in particular a health problem.
A behavior that logically made the public talk, and which was reminiscent of his speech last March where, following an elimination in the first round of the Acapulco tournament, Benoît Paire ensured to be hermetic to defeats as long as he could cash his check.
Enough to understand that the athlete definitely has nothing to do with tennis? That he no longer feels concerned by meetings? Not at all. This Friday, May 28, the 40th player in the world surprised everyone with a post on Twitter. Expected in the 1st round of Roland-Garros this weekend against Casper Ruud, Benoît Paire has indeed let his emotions speak.
Thus, after having initially confessed, “Yes, I am going through a difficult period … I am not asking you to understand me or to love me”, Shy’m’s ex took advantage of his message to try to rally the public behind him, “The only thing I ask you is that we play a great Roland Garros, whether there is victory or defeat, let’s just enjoy this moment and have fun !! I need you to set on fire”.
An astonishing declaration in view of his recent madnesses, which did not leave indifferent the fans and his relatives. Aware of the importance of such a message, many celebrities such as Floran Thauvin (World Football Champion), “We are all going through difficult times my friend !! Your full support brother”, or Cyril Hanouna (TPMP), “I’ll be there my bro!” therefore sent him as much force as possible.
Yes I am going through a difficult period .. I am not asking you to understand me nor to love me the only thing I ask you is that we pass a great Roland Garros, that there is victory or defeat just Kiffons this moment and let’s have fun !! I need you to set it on fire pic.twitter.com/Dy2nl1qkbr
