Montpellier Open 2022: Alejandro Davidovich Fokina vs. Adrian Mannarino Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2022 Montpellier Open as Alejandro Davidovich Fokina takes on Adrian Mannarino in the first round on Wednesday, February 2nd, 2021.

Will Adrian Mannarino be able to use the amazing form he found in Australia to go far here? Will Alejandro Davidovich Fokina show us why he is a great young talent who has a lot of room to grow on the ATP Tour? Both players are entertaining to watch, and will give it their all here. However, only one will make their way to the second round of the 2022 Montpellier Open. Who will it be?

Alejandro Davidovich Fokina will want to build on his tennis this year, finally making a bigger name for himself in slightly bigger tournaments. Alejandro has a great game, with a lot of power, spin, and flair behind his shots. In Australia, Alejandro was able to keep things extremely tight against the world no.9, Felix Auger-Aliassime in the second round of the Australian Open, and a few points either way could have changed the result. Davidovich Fokina will know that most tournaments are played on hard court, and although he is more comfortable on clay, he needs to make the most of these ranking points in these smaller ATP 250 tournaments such as the Montpellier Open. Can he beat the experienced Adrian Mannarino?

Adrian Mannarino played a great game down under in Australia, making it to the fourth round of the Australian Open, beating the likes of Hubert Hurkacz and Aslan Karatsev along the way to get into a tight match against Rafael Nadal. Mannarino forced Nadal to the limit in the opening set of their match, before having a bit of a groin injury which saw him not move greatly and lose the next two sets quite easily. Although he lost eventually, he showed great fighting spirit and he is definitely going to use that for these tournaments such as the 2022 Montpellier Open. Will he be able to cruise against Alejandro Davidovich Fokina?

Adrian Mannarino and Alejandro Davidovich Fokina have never met before, with this being their first career meeting. Although Alejandro is ranked 19 placed higher, has had the better year in 2021 in terms of wins, what Adrian showed in January was way better. Adrian was able to find his rhythm on his serve and return, toying with some of the best in the world at times. Alejandro, on the other hand, only beat 1 player this year who was really not a threat. In indoor hard court conditions, the conditions already suit Adrian more, so I think that this as well as his form will give him the edge to make his way to the second round of the 2022 Montpellier Open.
