After losing five straight matches in five successive tournaments, Benoit Paire was unable to find any sponsors. Some fans believe that it is also because of his on-court antics that no one is ready to sponsor the Frenchman. As a result, he played wearing the ball boys’ outfit at the Wimbledon Championships 2021 and interestingly, he is still sponsorless to date.

However, something intriguing took place during his match against John Isner. Paire turned up in a black Adidas T-shirt for the match and is still playing in the same outfit. It is quite surprising to watch him wearing the Adidas T-shirt since the sports brand is not sponsoring him right now.

In the first match, Paire made an incredible comeback against Miomir Kecmanovic after losing the first set. He didn’t give up and won the next two sets to advance to the round of 32. However, it is this round in which he caught everyone’s attention. In an epic encounter, he defeated Denis Shapovalov in three sets and stunned everybody.
