The 30-year old Frenchman opened with a four-set victory over Juan Londero 4-6 6-4 6-4 7-6. Paire didn’t break too much sweat on Wednesday, winning the first two sets against Miomir Kecmanovic who had to withdraw due to an injury.
Benoit came to London as the World No. 32 and with a 19-15 record in 2019. He’s enjoying a wonderful season, winning a couple of trophies on a clay court in Lyon and Marrakech. Paire exited in the first round in Halle and Antalya without winning a single set, while he has a 22-22 record on the grass court in his career.
Jiri Vesely News & Form
After a surprising four-set victory over Alexander Zverev in the opening round, Jiri Vesely dominated Pablo Cuevas in the second round. The 25-year old left-hander dropped the first set, but he took control in the second and easily eliminated Cuevas. Vesely served very well, hitting 73% of his 1st serve along with 21 aces.
Vesely is the World No. 124 at the moment, but he has a huge motive to defend the round of 16 at Wimbledon. Jiri has a 6-6 record on the ATP Tour in 2019, while he’s 16-11 on the grass court in his career.

Paire vs Vesely Betting Tip
This match will be a pure joy to watch, but I would avoid the side bet. Benoit Paire is one of those strange players whose game can fall apart any time, while he’s certainly a better player than Jiri Vesely in general. However, Vesely won three matches in qualifiers here and is playing in a good form. Therefore, I would stick with the total games, betting on the over 41.5 games at 5/6 odds with Betfair.
