Paire readies for Nadal by eating pizza, watching Sharapova; Burger King later

Before he played Rafael Nadal in the third round of the Barcelona Open, Benoit Paire ate a large pizza and a plate of Spanish ham and watched Maria Sharapova's first match on clay since winning the French Open last year. If social media pictures are to be believed. Sounds reasonable.

Paire lost to Nadal 7-6 (2), 6-2. And then proceeded to carry on his winning diet with a trip to Burger King, which included three double cheeseburgers, a cheeseburger (because four double cheeseburgers would have been excessive?) and a side of French fries.

Don't ever change, Benoit. He's playing in Estoril next week.
