Rome is already over for Benoît Paire. For his return to competition on Monday, after two weeks spent in his hotel room in New York because of his positive coronavirus test just before the United States Open, the Avignon resident did not last long against Jannik Sinner (6-2, 6-1) in the first round of the Masters 1000 Rome. The Italian, ranked 81st in the ATP, and who has a wild card for this tournament, needed an hour (1:04) to validate his ticket for the second round where Stefanos Tsitsipas awaits him, seed number 3.

From the start, Jannik Sinner got the better of his opponent to fly to 4-1. Even if Benoît Paire won his faceoff on the next game, the Italian went on and pocketed the win in the first round. The second set was an almost exact copy. But the French preferred to retain the few positive points. “It was a good training. I had an hour of autonomy so I’m pretty happy to have lasted 1:04. It’s good for the future. I am happy with what I did. I lost 6-2, 6-1 but in Cincinnati I stopped at 6-0, 1-0 so it’s pretty positive“, he declared after the meeting.

Before his first round, Benoît Paire pointed out the organization of the tournament which had decided to start it on Monday after all the ups and downs he had known during the American fortnight. “I made only one request is to play Tuesday to have one more day of training with what happened to me in New York and as I play an Italian you put me on Monday“, he tweeted on Sunday. From now on, the 24th player in the world will be able to recharge the batteries before attacking Roland-Garros (September 27-October 11).
