The third wild card for Benoît Paire
Benoît Paire (ATP 160), one of the most spectacular players on the Tour, will be part of the Gonet Geneva Open, which starts this Saturday. The Frenchman received the third and last wild card from the organizers. The first two wild cards were awarded to Grigor Dimitrov (ATP 33) and Alexander Zverev (ATP 22).
At 34 years old, Benoît Paire is currently having a good series of wins. This spring, he excelled on the Challenger front with a title in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and a final in Francavilla last week. This will be his third appearance at the Gonet Geneva Open. In 2021, he had a superb fight of 2h34′ against the German Dominik Köpfer. Last year, he beat the Finnish Emil Ruusuvuori before losing against the future winner of the tournament Casper Ruud.
The draw for the main draw of the Gonet Geneva Open will take place this evening at 6:30 pm. We will then know the first matches of a tournament that looks so promising.
