Known for his laid-back style on the court, which hides his strong and powerful backhand, Paire is also known for his inconsistent performances on the court. Fans might see him on top of his game one day, shooting a strong drop shot or smashing a backhand return winner, and then see a clumsy version of the player a day later. Paire is also well known for his behavior. He was kicked out of the Integrated Training Center of Roland Garros by Technical Director Patrice Hagelauer for bad behavior and bad temper on the court, which resulted to his refusal to play tennis for several months. Paire eventually cooled down and went back to playing, qualifying for Roland Garros and squaring off against Olivier Rochus in a tight match.

Paire holds a record of 4-8 in singles at ATP, Grand Slam and Davis Cup levels. He reached his highest ranking of no. 98 on May 9; 2011.his record for doubles is 1-4 at ATP, Grand Slam and Davis Cup levels.
