TennisSection previews the 2022 Atlanta Open as Alex de Minaur takes on Adrian Mannarino in the quarterfinals on Friday, July 29th, 2022.
Will Alex de Minaur get the win? Will Adrian Mannarino pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where we have the potential for a very fascinating match as two players with very unique games face off. Who will triumph and move on to the semifinals at the 2022 Atlanta Open?
Alex de Minaur got a great win over Duckworth, taking him down 6-4 6-4, de Minaur hasn’t had the success that everyone necessarily thought he would have by now, but he most certainly is a consistent player who is challenging to many others on the ATP Tour. It will be no different here as he comes up against Adrian Mannarino, Mannarino is a great player, but de Minaur may just have his number here as he looks to advance to the semifinals at the 2022 Atlanta Open.
Adrian Mannarino took down Martin in a relatively straightforward match, he originally qualified as a lucky loser after the withdrawal of Nick Kyrgios, but has since made his presence here known as he made the last eight. Alex de Minaur will be a very tough obstacle though, and he will have to play some incredible tennis to take him down. In the end though, I doubt there’s too much he can do to eventually win the match here at the 2022 Atlanta Open.
Alex de Minaur and Adrian Mannarino have met twice before, with the head to head being tied at 1-1. Their first meeting came in 2019 on a hard court, with de Minaur taking that one in a tight straight setter. Their more recent meeting though came during the grass season, with Mannarino blowing de Minaur out of the park. Mannarino is a more revered grass court player than the Australian, so I still expect de Minaur to take down Mannarino and progress at the 2022 Atlanta Open.
