Diego Schwartzman v Adrian Mannarino Head to Head
Schwartzman and Mannarino have played twice before this, and both matches were played on clay. Mannarino won the first meeting at the Rome Challenger in 2013, but it was the Argentine who won their most recent meeting at the Madrid Masters in 2018.
Schwartzman Returns to Winning Ways
After his Acapulco shocker (though it could argued, he lost to a generational player), Diego Schwartzman dusted his socks and put on a clinic in his second round match at the Miami Open.
The Argentine became the first top 10 player to fall at the hands of Lorenzo Musetti – the 19-year-old teenage sensation from Italy who has taken the tennis world by storm in recent weeks.
Schwartzman, playing in his fifth Miami Masters main draw, beat Japan’s Yasutaka Uchiyama 6-3 6-3 to reach the third round for the first time since 2018. The Buenos Aires champion capitalized on a nervous start by his Japanese opponent.
Uchiayama dropped serve three times in the opening set, with Schwartzman feeding off the second serve return. He won 7 out 12 points.
There was a slight improvement in the second set from the 28-year-old from Sapporo. But for a player who has only won two main draw matches since the turn of the year, he was bound to crack when pressure got to him. Schwartzman secured the lone break in the second to confirm his progress.
Mannarino Snaps Losing Streak
Adrian Mannarino’s mini crisis is over. The flamboyant Frenchman ended a run of three straight defeats, with a comfortable victory over Serbia’s Miomir Kecmanovic.
Mannarino and Kecmanovic were playing for the third time in under a year, and it was the experienced left-hander who continues to terrorize his young opponent in this lopsided rivalry with a third win in the series.
A pensive Mannarino who was forced to retire in Acapulco while trailing Grigor Dimitrov in the first round was winless since Singapore. But he was thorn in Kecmanovic’s game, breaking serve three times and outplaying the Next Gen star in the most critical moments in the match.
The 32-year-old has made the fourth round of the Miami Masters on two occasions, both times he defied the odds to make it that far. Does he have another shot up his sleeve to take out the world no.9?
Schwartzman v Mannarino Prediction and Tip
Schwartzman starts as a huge favorite, but he has been notorious for being passive occasionally this season. Mannarino for his part has been in terrible form since the Australian Open, but still remains a tough draw on hard courts. Each player should at least take a set here.
Tip: Three sets in the match: 6/4 (bet365)
