The talented Frenchman wins his first career title after playing a great tournament in Bastad. Paire has conceded no sets during the tournament to win every single match in straight sets.
Paire: It’s a perfect week
Benoit commented “It’s a perfect week. The conditions today were not easy, but I’m really happy to win against Tommy. He’s a very good player. To play against him in the final and to beat him is a dream, so I’m very happy.
It was a lot of pressure, but I think I played well… I hope it’s not the last [title] for me.”
With this title Pire won €80,000 and 250 ATP points. He is now the 6th player to have won his first career title in the season after Vesely (Auckland), Estrella Burgos (Quito), Sock (Houston), Thiem (Nice) and Istomin (Nottingham).
Next stop Hamburg!
