Tennis: hit in the ankle, Mannarino beaten at the start of Miami

Adrian Mannarino (20th in the world), injured in the left ankle at the start of the last set, was beaten on Sunday as soon as he entered the fray, in the 2nd round, at the Masters 1000 in Miami by the modest German Yannick Hanfmann (56th), winner of the French 3-6, 7-6 (7/1), 6-4 in 2h44.

At 1-1, 40 A in the third set, Mannarino injured his left ankle while starting to get a drop shot. Returning to the court after being treated, he immediately lost his serve and let Hanfmann escape 4-1.

But the French left-hander, unable to convert any of his previous nine break points, exploited the tenth to break and pick up at 4-4.

Despite this startle, he ended up bowing.

The French No.2 quickly won the first round in 36 minutes, in which he made the break twice, in the first and last games.

In the second set, Mannarino had six new break points, the last of which even turned out to be a match point.

But unable to convert a single one, he had to resolve to play a decisive game, where he completely disunited, then multiplying the unforced errors to let Hanfmann come back to one set everywhere.

There will therefore only be two French people in the third round: Ugo Humbert (15th), who will have an opponent well within his reach, the German Dominik Koepfer (50th), which will not be the case for Gaël Monfils (47th) , opposed to the formidable Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz (world No.2).
