The French tennis player confessed his difficult situation, “I need help.”

Benoit Paire in a heart-to-heart interview with the online site Brut told about the drama he is experiencing. The French tennis player since the pandemic feels he is no longer the same: “Since the beginning of this season I have had to fight with my mind every single day. I think after Covid there have not been many moments when I felt happy. I am quite sensitive and emotional, so everything that happened affected and hurt me more than others.”

Paire won only four times in 2022: “I realized that I need help. Now I am following therapy from a psychologist and a mental coach to try to understand what is happening to me. So far it hasn’t worked, but I need to get out of it. Social media? I’m a person who likes to read all the messages, but you have to know that even when you win you get a lot of negative messages. If I’m getting used to it? It’s not so easy to deal with every day. When you’re not doing well, it’s even worse to receive messages from haters or gamblers who lost 2 euros because of your defeat.”
