• Paire, Bellucci in action at BNP Paribas Masters

    Paire, Bellucci in action at BNP Paribas Masters Benoit Paire will be featured during the night session on Monday in Paris as he goes up against Pablo Andujar. Thomaz Bellucci and Kevin Anderson are also in action.

    Pablo Andujar vs. (WC) Benoit Paire

    Andujar and Paire will be going head-to-head for the second time in their careers and for the second time this season when they clash in round one of the BNP Paribas Masters on Monday night. Paire won their only previous encounter 6-3, 1-6, 6-3 on the clay courts of Belgrade. The 44th-ranked Frenchman is an even 25-25 for the year after reaching the Basel quarterfinals last week.

    Although he is ranked four spots higher, Andujar is just 19-28 for the season and playing dreadful tennis on anything other than clay. He has not won a match since the first round of the U.S. Open. Andujar lost his sixth match in a row last week in Valencia and did not hold serve a single time against David Goffin. Paire in straight sets is the obvious pick.

    Kevin Anderson vs. Thomaz Bellucci

    Anderson and Bellucci will be squaring off for the third time in their careers on Monday in Paris. After Anderson survived 6-7(4), 6-4, 5-7, 6-4, 7-6(2) at the 2010 U.S. Open, Bellucci prevailed 6-4, 6-4 this year on the clay courts of Monte-Carlo.

    Both players need to make a decent run this week in order to be seeded for the Australian Open; Bellucci comes in at No. 35 the world and Anderson registers at 39th. The Brazilian has an edge in current form (runner-up two weeks ago in Moscow), but Anderson is much more suited for fast hard courts. Look for the 6'7'' South African to advance after three sets.
