Benoit Paire, the French tennis player, is going through a rough patch right now. Former girlfriend of the transalpine athlete, French influencer Julie Bertin, has recently entered the fray, further complicating an already tense situation.
The tennis player, who is currently ranked 92nd in the world, was slammed by the ex-girlfriend several weeks after their breakup for his treatment of other women. Bertin clarified the situation on Instagram by posting a story “In spite of my best intentions, I’m not naive enough to think I can keep my mouth shut and my thoughts to myself.
This person claims he needs time away from me to focus on sports, but he was secretly messaging a number of young women. Please stop contacting or asking me. I’ve had an emotional outburst.
I’m done dealing with this person, “Clearly referencing Paire’s work.
A number of mental health issues plagued him during the Covid era, which clearly affected his performance on the court.
The French tennis player released a lucid explanation of his issues on social media: “Since the start of this season, I’ve had to constantly battle my thoughts. After Covid, I don’t think I’ve had many moments of happiness.
The events that transpired had a greater impact on me than on anyone else because I am a sensitive and emotional person. I came to terms with the fact that I needed assistance. I’ve hired a psychologist and a mental coach to help me figure out what’s going on in my life.
It hasn’t worked so far, but I need to get out of this rut.” After that, Paire spoke about the unrelenting vitriol that an athlete is subjected to on a daily basis: “As someone who likes to read all the messages, I’m aware that even when I win, I’m bombarded with negative ones.
Is it possible that I’m adapting? It’s difficult to deal with on a daily basis. Receiving messages from haters or bettors who have lost 2 euros because you lost is even worse when you’re not doing well.”
