Benoît Paire lost at the gates of the final of the Challenger tournament in Lüdenscheid. Not without losing his nerves.
Rather to his advantage lately, in full recovery of confidence on the Challenger circuit with a great victory at San Benedetto del Tronto, recently in Italy, Benoît Paire played a new semi-final this Saturday in Lüdenscheid, Germany.
Alas, the terrible child of French tennis ended up bowing when he seemed to have the game in hand. Credited with a set lead and a break signed in the second act, the interested party led 7-6, 4-2 before undergoing the reaction of pride from the Bolivian Hugo Dellien.

Letting the second round slip away, Benoît Paire cracked, gratifying the assembly with a flowery formula of which he has the secret. Finally beaten 7-6, 4-6, 3-6, the 34-year-old from Avignon deprived himself of a new final, betrayed by his nerves.
