At each start of Roland, always the same double question: who will be the first to break his racket in the middle of a match?
And why Benoît Paire?
Except that this year, it is not our beloved crackpot who will win the prize.
But the winner is French, honor is safe.
It is Ellitot Benchetrit, who was opposed Sunday to the American John Isner.
After sending his ball over the edge of the net when he was already led two sets to nothing, the Niçois broke his work tool six times before approaching his chair and giving him the final blow like you would break a log by leaning it against a wall.
Furious, Eliott Benchetrit loses his nerves and smashes his racket!

One way like any other to exteriorize your anger once and for all, even if it will ultimately be ineffective.
Benchetrit was finally eliminated in the first round after conceding the third set (6-3).
