Kevin Anderson v Adrian Mannarino Head to Head
The pair have played each other no fewer than nine times before, with all but one of their meetings coming on hard courts like Washington. Anderson leads their head to head series by seven matches to tow, and has won their last four meetings, the most recent of which came in the first round of the Australian Open this year. Fans of Mannarino need to go back to Auckland in 2012 for his last victory.
Anderson’s Season Affected by Injury
World number eleven Anderson has had an injury-ravaged season so far. After winning his sixth ATP career title in Pune in India in January, he went to the Australian Open as the fifth seed, but suffered a surprise second round defeat to Frances Tiafoe of the United States.
An elbow injury ruled him out of Indian Wells and, although he was able to compete in Miami and reached the quarter-finals, injury again caused him to miss the whole of the European clay court season.
He returned to action at the Queen’s Club but was beaten in the second round by Gilles Simon of France, going one stage further at Wimbledon before suffering a comprehensive defeat at the hands of Argentine Guido Pella. This will be his first match since that loss.
Mannarino, 2019 Title Breakthrough
31-year-old Mannarino has enjoyed a breakthrough year of sorts, winning his first ATP career title at s-Hertogenbosch in June after 15 years on tour. Apart from that though, his best results in 2019 have tended to come on the doubles’ court – with Hugo Nys he reached the semi-finals in New York, and, with the same partner, the quarters in Delray Beach.
The Frenchman has a poor record when it comes to major tournaments – the best he has managed in Grand Slams is two fourth round appearances at Wimbledon, whilst his 2017 run to the quarter-finals at the Canada Masters counts amongst his career highlights.
He progressed to the second round here by beating Ilya Ivashka of Belarus in straight sets, but not without some difficulty, relying on his superior ability on second serve, and his return of service to help him claim victory in the end.
Anderson v Mannarino Predictions & Tips
Anderson is the odds-on favourite to win this match at 5/12, whilst Mannarino is priced at 9/4. The South African has had more than his fair share of injuries this year but, if he is fit, should prevail as he is facing an opponent against whom he has a very good record, in he process boosting his own morale.
Tip: Anderson to win in straight sets: 21/20 (888Sport)
