Great start to the US Open on Monday with this very balanced meeting between Benoit Paire and Dusan Lajovic. The Frenchman must revive after his failure in the second round in Winston-Salem against Emil Ruusuvuori (4-6 6-4 1-6). But during this American tour he still shone, reaching the quarterfinals in Cincinnati. I have no doubts that he will sell his skin dearly at this very important tournament. Be careful though with his opponent who is always very comfortable on hard. He will also be keen to react after his defeat against Gaà «l Monfils (7-6 6-2) two weeks ago. That’s why I see Benoit Paire beat Dusan Lajovic and over 37.5 games in the game!
