Adrian Mannarino v Roberto Marcora Head to Head
This will be a first meeting between the 32-year-old Frenchman and the 31-year-old Italian.
Mannarino Looking For Second Title
World No. 35 Adrian Mannarino will begin his Singapore Open challenge in the Round of 16 on Thursday, after the top seed received a first round bye in the tournament.
The French left-hander is 3-3 this year and is coming off a decent Australian Open campaign where he equaled his previous best by reaching the third round.
Seeded 32nd at the Melbourne slam, Mannarino had little trouble in dispatching Austria’s Dennis Novak and Serbia’s Miomir Kecmanovic in the first two rounds. It was only the second time in 12 main draw appearances that he won two consecutive matches at the Australian Open. He previously achieved the feat in 2018. His run, however, ended in the third round after he was defeated by Alexander Zverev.
The Frenchman, who was 14-17 last season, which included a run to the final in Kazakhstan and semifinal in Sofia, wasn’t off to a great start in 2021, making a first round exit at Delray Beach. He won his first match against Mikael Ymer at the Australian Open warm-up in Melbourne, but was beaten by American Marcos Giron in the next round.
Mannarino, who will be aiming to win his second career title in Singapore this week, has played in 10 ATP Tour finals, but has finished runner-up on nine occasions. His only success came on the grass court of ’s-Hertogenbosch in 2019.
Marcora Ousts Gulbis
On Thursday, Mannarino will face Italy’s Roberto Marcora, who defeated former World No. 10 Ernests Gulbis of Latvia in the first round on Wednesday.
The 191st-ranked Italian needed just an hour and 15 minutes to beat the Latvian 7-5, 6-4.
Serving well in the match, Marcora didn’t allow a single break point opportunity to Gulbis, while breaking the Latvian twice. The win improved the 31-year-old Italian to 3-2 in his career at the senior level.
The 6’4” Marcora, who turned pro in 2009, has won 11 times on the ITF Circuit. He came into the tournament with a 2-5 Challenger and qualifying record this year.
Mannarino v Marcora Prediction and Tip
Mannarino is the top seed and will be looking to get off to a good start. Expect the Frenchman to win in straight sets.
