Can Benoit Paire challenge Rafa at Roland Garros this year?

#1
The way he won the tournament in Marrakech was impressive. He demollished most of his opponents. His game seems complete. He has a big serve and fenomenal groundstrokes. The way he hits his backhands i've never seen really. Flat, super aggressive and very consistant. Reminds me a bit of Soderling when he beat Nadal, but better.

No he can't . he hits way too flat and he just isn't consistent enough. and he will get tired in the 1st set against RAFA due to all the running he has to do

Consistent enough to win this title. And if he keeps blasting those serves and groundstrokes Nadal will be the one who's running.

But yes, i know it's a long shot. He just looked really impressive this week. And players who play aggressive always have a change of winning when they have good days.

Maybe at Wimbledon he can. there he will want to go fishing after he wins his 12 French opens so there he has a chance, and rafa can just say Benoit was too good today......

It would be interesting but NOPE. I hope I'm wrong. Paire is a good player and I love watching his matches, but there some stuff he needs to work on.
