Benoit Paire is ready to do battle with Spain in the semi-finals of the Davis Cup this weekend. And he savored this first selection with the Blues.
Benoit Paire, who will play the first single of the Blues against Spain in the semi-finals of the Davis Cup "I am very proud to belong to this group, which lives very well. The integration was simple. There is a great collective. It is the strength of this team of France which is very close. And I am very happy to honor this first selection. I can not wait to be there. We are all in shape. Even Manna (Adrian Mannarino, substitute for this meeting) did a great week. With Carreno-Busta (against whom he will play Friday)we played a lot. I know how he plays. He's very solid, it's going to be a tactical match.
"I think more about the game than to break snowshoes"
Can the Davis Cup allow me to change my image of a terrible child vis-à-vis the public? This image, I'm already trying to change it for some time. It is true that there was the episode of the Washington tournament (in August) where I got upset, but I was pretty quiet since the beginning of the year. I'm here to confirm that for a year, it's already much better, that I think more about the game than to break snowshoes. I just want to bring a point to the team by being serious. "
