Tuesday Morning Man: Benoit Paire!


This sexy bearded Frenchman is tennis pro Benoit Paire who won the second title of his career on Sunday.

He’s currently ranked 43rd in the world but has been ranked as high as 18th and won more than $6.5 million in prize money.

In 2015, Paire was voted Comeback Player of the Year, rising from #126 to a then career-high #19 after a knee injury had sidelined him for much of 2014.

He’s 29 and is known for his flashiness on the court that plays to the crowd.

According to Wikipedia, he is known to hit a variety of high-risk shots and trick shots, such as the frontal and back tweener, jumping tweener, drop shots that backspin towards the net and topspin backhands at extremely acute angles, even when unnecessary to win the point. Because of this, he often lightens the mood in matches and wins the crowd’s favor.
