Benoit Paire vs Gilles Simon: Prediction and Betting Tips
Benoit Paire is a French tennis player who has been on tour for 12 seasons. Currently, 49th in the world, the Frenchman’s best rank was 18th in 2016. His best season in terms of results was in 2019 with a record of 34-29. However, Paire’s form degraded in the past two seasons. Significantly, his win/loss record dropped to just 11-23 this year and as a result, his bad temper has emerged as the number one cause for this.
Nonetheless, Paire is having a good couple of weeks in the hard courts of the USA leading to the US Open. In Cincinnati last week, the Frenchman reached the quarter-final after some good wins over Shapovalov and Isner. But Andre Rublev proved too strong for him as he got eliminated by the Russian in a tough three-set match.
Paire Key Points
- The Frenchman won 42% of the points on his second serve on hard courts this year
- Paire won 73.7%of the service games
- Benoit played 24 games per match on hard courts this year
Gilles Simon of France is on tour in his 19th season. He won 14 titles in his career plus a Davis Cup with his country. Notably, his best year in terms of results was in 2008 and best ranking number six in 2009. The 36-year-old decreased the number of his appearances on tour. Hence, this season Simon played 17 matches winning just four of them.
Consequently, Simon dropped in the ATP rankings to 103. Moreover, we have to go back to 2018 to find the last time Simon won a title. The highlight of his career was winning the Davis Cup with France. In the first round of the Winston-Salem tournament. Simon beat another French player Rinderknech in two sets. That will give the 36-year-old a fine morale boost ahead of his Paire match.
Simon Key Stats
- Simon Played 24.6 games per match on hard courts this year
- The Frenchman has a percentage of 54.5% on his first serve
- The former world number six won 42% of the breakpoints he had
Benoit Paire vs Gilles Simon Prediction
Obviously, Benoit Paire is the better form between these two. So, this will be a chance for Paire to register his fourth victory over his countryman who has six wins. Simon seems to be at the end of his career and his decreased number of appearances recently could be a sign.
On the other hand, Paire is still 32 and can play for several more years. However, Benoit’s temper during matches affects him deeply and that is one of the reasons he did not reach the top ten.
Vbet has odds of 1.67 for a Paire win. While the odds for a Simon win is 2.17. History aside and taking into consideration Simon’s form this year is not encouraging enough to expect him to win.
Thus we will back a Benoit Paire win for this match.
