Dan Evans vs Adrian Mannarino
June 17, 2021 12:00 am EDT
Sixth seeded Dan Evans of Great Britain will face unseeded Frenchman Adrian Mannarino in the Round of 16 at the 2021 Queen’s Open. The match is scheduled to be played on Thursday June 17th, 2021 at 7:00am EST.
A very close match is expected here at the 2021 Queen’s Open as sixth seed Dan Evans will face Adrian Mannarino for a spot in the Semi-Finals. Both men are highly experienced and have met twice before, with one win apiece. Who will get the win and advance to the Quarter-Finals here at Queen’s?
Dan Evans is the British number one, and is ranked #25 in the ATP world rankings. He is a veteran of the ATP Tour and is known as a very consistent player, and one who has recently began to break out on the circuit. After reaching quite a few finals without success, he finally won his first title at the Murray River Open, and had a very surprising run to the Semi-Finals at the Monte-Carlo Masters on clay. He began his Queen’s campaign with a strong win over Alexei Popyrin, surprisingly dominating the young Aussie in straight sets. While he enters this match against Frenchman Adrian Mannarino as the favorite, he should not underestimate his very experienced opponent, who won their only prior meeting on clay.
Adrian Mannarino is unseeded here at the 2021 Queen’s Open, and is currently ranked #42 in the ATP rankings. The Frenchman is a very experienced player and is a dangerous opponent on any surface. He had been in terrible form prior to this tournament, losing a remarkable eight consecutive matches dating back to the Miami Open months ago. While he is in dreadful form, he has won an ATP title on grass and should not be taken lightly. Mannarino won his opening round match over Liam Broady here at Queen’s and will have been delighted to have ended the losing streak.

This is the third meeting between the two players, and their head to head is tied 1-1. This is shaping up to be a very close match, and I am going with the Brit Dan Evans to get the win here. While Mannarino probably has the better grass court pedigree, we cannot overlook his dreadful form of late and a win over the lowly Liam Broady does not inspire much confidence. I expect a close match, with Evans advancing here.
