Benoit Paire: I figured out what I must improve for few years I have left on Tour

Former world No. 18 Benoit Paire is drawing positives from the 2021 season as he insists this year helped him realize what he needs improve in order to have a successful few years he has left on the Tour. Paire, 32, was on a seven-match losing streak earlier this year but he improved in the second part of the season and even made the Cincinnati Masters quarterfinal.

Paire, who is currently on a four-match losing streak, is set to take on Constant Lestienne in the Roanne Challenger first round on Tuesday. "The 2021 season is coming to an end, I still have Roanne and maybe Pau to play before starting my preparation for the 2022 season.

This season made me realize what areas I must improve for the few years that I have left to play," Paire said in an Instagram post. "I wanted to thank my family who were present in the most difficult times, my girlfriend who supported me even when I wanted to quit, my friends who are there all the time to encourage me and my agent Daryl who does a wonderful job and who is there to calm things down when I want to really say what I think."

Paire to play the Australian Open

Last week, Paire revealed that he's fully vaccinated and that he doesn't really care what will happen with unvaccinated players at the Australian Open. "There is no quarantine anymore in Melbourne if you're vaccinated.

Those that are not vaccinated, I don't care about them. If they don't play, all the better for me," Paire told reporters after losing in the first round of the Paris Masters, per 7NEWS. "I don't care about the other players.

I'm motivated to have a great season next year. If there are some people who are reluctant to get vaccinated, then they should stay in Europe. "It's not my problem. You have to be vaccinated to go to Australia. I am vaccinated and I'm looking forward to playing there."
