Benoit Paire in the first round of the tournament in Rotterdam on February 12 will play with Aljaz Bedene. Paire confidently began the season and it seemed that now he will be able to begin a new stage in his professional career.

Bet and win
This season, Aljaz Bedene shows a faded game, because six fights on the ground were played, of which three were lost. And this despite the fact that almost all the matches were in qualification at various tournaments. It can be seen that Aljaj Bedene is playing very hard on the ground because earlier it was possible to take part only in those tournaments that took place on hard.
Aljaz Bedene only knows how to demonstrate an aggressive quick game, but with viscous clay matches things are not working out yet. So, although Aljaz Bedene is one of the twenty strongest tennis rackets in the world, you can’t talk about any leadership in this match.
Most likely, Aljaz Bedene will bet not only on his serve but will also try to competently play at the reception. Aljaz Bedene feels the backline very well, but moving to the grid quickly does not always work, so this is the weak point.
Bedene can not yet boast of particular stability this season. In seven games played, the Slovak won only three wins. He designed two of them at the tournament in Doha, which took place at the beginning of the year – there Aljaz beat Mikael Ymer (3-6, 6-4, 6-3) and Alexander Bublik (6-3, 7-5).
Bedene last played in Rotterdam in 2017 and then he covered the racket in the first round of the competition.
The start of the season was completely failed, so Benoit Paire now has little playing practice. Only three matches were played, all of which ended in defeat, and only one managed to win one set. It was in a game with opponents who are significantly lower in the ranking of world tennis. So, even though last year at this tournament we managed to get into the quarter-finals, it will be a surprise if this time at least we can overcome the qualification matches.
Benoit Paire shows an extremely weak level because there is no such aspect of the game in which there would be no problems. And with the filing, problems began, and the reception worsened, so that the marriage is visible around. Benoit Paire does not feel the backline, and he cannot block the area near the net simply because of poor speed.
What happened in the offseason is not clear, so it is hoped that with an increase in playing practice the situation will improve, so Benoit Paire will not look so hopeless in all matches.
Paire has repeatedly demonstrated that he can play whenever he wants. Another thing is that he does not always want. For example, this season Benoit has already visited the final of the tournament in Auckland, where he lost to Hubert Gurkach (6-7, 6-3, 6-7). The Frenchman also looked good on the Australian Open, wherein the second round he lost in five sets to Marina Chilich (2-6, 7-6, 6-3, 1-6, 6-7).
But at a recent tournament in Pune, where Paire was seeded under the first number, he lost in the first round of the competition, losing to the 174th racket of the world to Robert Markore (4-6, 4-6).
Statistics and personal meetings
- In personal meetings, Beden is 5-4.
- Paire won twice in the last five games, Beden won one.
Aljaz Bedene vs Benoit Paire Predictions
Paire does not always give all the best, sometimes the Frenchman plays through his sleeves, especially if he doesn’t get something during the game. For example, at a recent tournament in Pune, where he was the first seeding number, Benoit took off in the first round of the competition.
It is likely that the start of the tournament in Rotterdam could be the same for Paire. Moreover, the last two personalities remained for Bedene.
