Benoit Paire couldn’t control his emotions after his second round loss at the Citi Open
Benoit Paire is known for doing weird and controversial things on and off the pitch. This time he added some more drama to his name after losing to Holger Rune. It was a hot and humid day with both players struggling with the weather. Unable to control his emotions, Paire reacted incredibly to the situation as he struggled with the hot and muggy Washington DC weather.
After losing his match, he was on his way to shake hands with his opponent at the net. While walking towards the net and before shaking hands, he started ripping open his shirt, took it off and then threw it at his opponent Rude. He then shook hands half-naked with Rude, who handed the shirt back to him after shaking his hands off. Then he tossed the shirt back to the chair umpire. It was all accompanied by laughter from his opponent, the player himself and also the crowd in the stadium.
But it was Paire who did the inevitable, which wasn’t the first time he’d done it. This case was repeated by the Frenchman in Acapulco while playing against Daniel Medvedev. During the ninth game, Paire tore his shirt apart. He was apparently struggling with the hot and humid weather in Acapulco.
