What Benoit Paire said

After the match, Paire commented

“I think I played well already in Marrakech. I started the season a little bit bad with some injuries. So it was not easy at the beginning.

But I feel much better now. I feel good on court, I feel very confident. When you feel confident, you can win a lot of matches against good players.”
