Peer continues to unpleasantly surprise, because he can compete at the highest level and beat the best, as it was shown today against Marin Cilic. But the problem is that the Frenchman lacks character, and any talent depreciates the bases of this.

Gasquet seriously slowed down in his game. And not only age is to blame for this, but also permanent injuries that regularly worry the Frenchman. But Richard should not be underestimated categorically, because he still has a high tennis IQ and regularly holds dizzying rallies.
In addition, Gasquet still punches the ball whackily and is able to finish the draw in a few strokes. Do not forget that in the arsenal of the Frenchman has a variable one-handed backhand. That’s just what the tennis player lacks, it was speed and endurance.
The tournament in Dubai will be the third for Gasquet this season. Before that, he played only in Montpellier and in Marseille. The Frenchman managed to beat Gilles Simon and Feliciano Lopez. In the remaining fights, he lost.
Despite the recent setbacks, Gasquet started a good competition in the UAE. In a previous match, a French veteran met with South African Harris. Richard reliably played on his serve, and then, after waiting for the opponent’s mistakes, he beat him with a score of 7-6, 6-4.
There is no doubt that Paire is one of the most unpredictable tennis players on the tour. After all, he can go to court and lose the first set in the dry. But then suddenly come to his senses and dominate the second, third parties.
And this tendency happens with a tennis player on a regular basis since he is not able to conduct even several matches in the tournament at the same level. For example, today Benoit without a chance lost Cilic and did it a half set. However, he came to his senses and suddenly began to play at the highest level.
Paire made real fun in the previous match with Cilic. Both tennis players played in the best traditions of the WTA tour. For two, Benoit and Marin lost nine innings. As a result, the meeting dragged on to 2.5 hours, but the Frenchman managed to snatch win with a score of 2-6, 7-5, 7-6.
So far, Paire is having a bad season. After a successful Adelaide for himself, the Frenchman began to decline. Further round two in the Australian Open and in Marseilles he did not go. In other competitions, Benoit took off in the first match.
