Adrian Mannarino knocked out in Washington Open second round

It was not the Adrian Mannarino of the good days who showed up on the court for this second round of the Washington Open. Exempted from the first round as seeded n°7, the Frenchman was quickly annoyed against Jordan Thomson, an opponent who had already given him a hard time recently in the quarter-finals in Newport, on grass.

However, Mannarino had ideally started with a break from the first game. But, as Thompson picked up speed, the Frenchman came out of the game. While serving to win the first set at 5-4, he conceded his serve on a double fault. Mannarino threw down his racket. A gesture of irritation that he was going to repeat in the next game and which earned him a warning. He might call himself quiet out loud, nothing helped and the Australian took the first set after having lined up three games in a row.

Mannarino held on somehow in the second set, but still showed no more serenity. He ended up dropping his serve at the worst time, at 5-4 Thompson, synonymous with victory for his opponent.
