In the quarterfinals of the 2019 ATP Moselle Open, Benoir Paire is set to play against Gregoire Barrere. 

Gregoire Barrere enters this match having won his previous outing in 3 sets. It was a close match where Barrere showed great determined as he lost the opening set but fought back strongly to win the final 2 sets and the match. It was a solid display by Gregoire Barrere as he won close to 80% of his service games and 4 return games. Gregoire Barrere has shown great skill in this tournament as he defeated the number 6 seed in the opening round. Despite that result, this is expected to be a very tough match since Benoit Paire is a very strong player and the number 3 seed. 


Looking at Benoit Paire, the Frenchman defeated Richard Gasquet in the previous round. Paire lost the opening set but turned up his game in the final 2 sets which he won comfortably. The serving was very strong from Paire as he won 68% of his service points which allowed him to win 86% of his service games. Paire also won 3 return games to secure a big win. The Moselle Open has always been a strong tournament for Benoit Paire as he made the final of this event in 2017. Having already defeated Gasquet, Benoit Paire will be confident as he enters this match. 

Gregoire Barrere and Benoit Paire have played each other twice in the past. Paire has won both prior matches. The most recent match between these two players was in 2015 where Paire won in 3 sets. 

Despite the strong tournament that Gregoire Barrere has had, I see him being defeated in this match. Benoit Paire is a significantly stronger player and he has always played well at the Moselle Open. I see Paire having too much power and skill for Barrere in this match.
