Second Serve


By Chris Oddo | @TheFanChild | Thursday March 4, 2021

Bad boy Benoit Paire is at it again. This time, the Frenchman, known for his comical outbursts, may have taken it a bit too far when he spit in the clay, directly on a ball mark that he had been disputing with the umpire moments before.

Paire, who is squaring off with Argentinian Francisco Cerundolo at the Argentina Open today, fell in three sets to Cerundolo. 

Side note: We take it that Benoit would prefer Hawk-Eye on clay?

UPDATE: Paire posted the following tweet after his loss.

Translation: At the end, it's worth it to suck...

Paire was making his first appearance at Buenos Aires since 2012. Not sure if he won over a lot of fans (or the tweet) with his behavior. Our guess is probably not.
