Stefanos Tsitsipas v Adrian Mannarino Head to Head
Their head-to-head is tied at 1-1. While Tsitsipas prevailed on the clay courts of Madrid in 2019, he retired after the players were tied a set apiece later the same year on the hard courts of Zhuhai.
Tsitsipas Prevails in Epic Murray Encounter
Tsitsipas has reached a career high world number three in the ATP rankings and tasted consistent success this season, but also missed out on golden opportunities to secure a stronghold on the year. While the losses at Acupulco and Cincinnati (both to Zverev) are instances, letting go of a two sets to love lead at the French Open finals against Novak Djokovic definitely stands out.
The Greek has been hoping for a good run this fortnight as he ran into three-time slam winner and former world number one Andy Murray in the opener.
It was a battle of talent, tempers, nerves and more. Murray rolled back the years and played some of his best tennis in a while, continuing to be the fighter he has always been as he took control of the match with a two sets to love lead. While Tsitsipas played some excellent tennis with his back to the wall to win in just under five hours in five sets, what took all the attention were the bathroom breaks from the Greek.
In similar light to what happened against Zverev in Cincinnati recently, Murray felt Tsitsispas’ breaks after sets were too long, distracting and suggestive of illegal means of receiving coaching and the sort.
While a lot has been said and heard off the court in the last 24 hours, the Greek will be relieved to have come through this acid test and ready for the next round, as he continues to hope for a good run here.
Mannarino Comes Back Against Countryman
Frenchman Adrian Mannarino has been on the circuit for a decade and a half and has never been past the round of 32, as he aims to book another spot in the third round here.
Currently he will be most remembered for having Roger Federer on the ropes at Wimbledon this year in the opener and just as they were heading into a fifth set, a nasty fall on the grass saw him hurt his knee and withdraw from the match and tournament.
The Frenchman played his first match since then here in the opener and was down two sets to love against countryman Pierre-Hugues Herbert but came back strong from two sets to love down to wrap up the match in five sets and secure a second round place.
A natural serve and volleyer, while Mannarino does not have big weapons to upset the best in the business, being left handed and having a somewhat unorthodox playing style, he has caused trouble for many during his long playing career and will look to challenge Tsitsipas as well.
Tsitsipas v Mannarino Prediction and Tip
While both players are coming off epic five set openers and will be tired, the Greek definitely has the younger legs and will recover faster. Expect a more routine match for Tsitsipas who should prevail in straight sets.
