The match follows the first round clash between Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Benoit Paire.
If you were interested, Tsonga went onto beat his compatriot 6-4, 7-5 and will come up against Roger Federer in the round of 16 - who by the way, has an epic and unique skill set of his own.
Paire, 30, had previously been warned for throwing his racquet in the first set, but there was no such warning following his footballing display. "I love to play at this venue, so I am going into the tournament with a very good feeling". I think I had a clear game plan, I knew that it was going to be more hard for him to dominate the baseline.
Roger Federer is through to the second round of the Halle Open after a straight-sets win over John Millman.
"To be in the semi-finals again, above all in Paris after all these years, definitely gives me a boost", he said.
