  • Pouille et Gasquet chutent d'entrée Paire attend Federer

Benoit Paire a mis en grandes difficultés le numéro 1 mondial jeudi au tournoi de tennis de Halle en Allemagne.

L'Avignonnais a tenu la dragée haute au n°1 mondial en allant jusqu'à se procurer deux balles de match dans le tie-break, avant de céder (6-3, 3-6, 7-6 [7]).

En quarts de finale, Federer défiera Matthew Ebden, tombeur de l'Allemand Philipp Kohlschreiber.

Il a fallu que le N.1 mondial prenne d'assaut le filet puis décoche un retour en profondeur pour annihiler les chances de son adversaire. Le Français a ensuite éliminé deux balles de match à 6-5 au troisième set pour provoquer le bris d'égalité ultime. Huit minutes plus tard, la 48 raquette mondiale disposait d'une balle de match à son tour, et de nouveau à la suite d'une erreur de Federer alors que le pointage était de 7-6 en faveur de Paire.

Il n'avait cédé aucun set à Paire lors de leurs cinq premières confrontations mais ce duel inédit sur herbe aurait pu bien plus mal tourner pour le "Maître", qui fêtera ses 37 ans le 8 août.
