    Frenchman Benoit Paire has apologised for an outburst during the second ASB men's Classic semi-final

    Frenchman Benoit Paire has apologised for an outburst during the second ASB men's Classic semi-final


    Paire, who advanced to the final with a three set win over Hubert Hurkacz , lost his composure towards the end of the second set.

    He was distracted while serving by a fan yelling out "C'mon Benny" late in the second set and again in the tiebreak.

    Paire then served a double fault at 1-5 down in the breaker, smashing his racket into the court, incurring a point penalty and gifting the set to his opponent before arguing with the chair umpire.

    Paire will face fellow Frenchman Ugo Humbert in today's final.
