Benoit Paire shared that he was contemplating taking a break to refresh himself mentally, after his first-round loss to Feliciano Lopez at the Monte Carlo Masters on Tuesday.
'I am a little bit tired now,' Paire admitted in an interview to L'Equipe. 'I am not necessarily very happy in life and on-court. I don't know what I will do. Will I stop until Roland Garros? Wimbledon? There are other things besides tennis, in life. I want to be happy every day and so far it's not like this, with my back and many things outside. I will try to take the right decisions. And you want to try to head to the court by being a little happy. There is mental tiredness. Not being happy in the life makes me exhausted. I like to play tennis, but sometimes I don't want to play, but being at home and calm. Enjoying with my friends and family.'
