There won't be tennis matches on the ATP Tour for the next six weeks but at least the flashy Frenchman Benoit Paire keeps winning off the court. Last Sunday, the Indian Wells Masters became the first major tennis event to get called off due to the coronavirus outbreak.
On Thursday, the ATP announced it was suspending the men's professional Tour for six weeks due to the coronavirus outbreak. A day after the Tour got suspended, Paire posted a picture of himself posing on the beach with the caption that the coronavirus is annoying as he can't play tennis because of it.
Paire, ranked at No.
22 in the world, made a promising start to the 2020 season but then his from dropped and he collected several early round exits. The Frenchman fell just short of winning a title the week before the Australian Open as he ended runner-up in the Auckland final to fellow compatriot Ugo Humbert.
Paire hasn't won back-to-back matches since Auckland as in his last five tournaments played he collected only three wins and five losses.
