Aslan Karatsev vs Adrian Mannarino: Match Preview
Aslan Karatsev’s Australian Open campaign has been shaky so far, with his second-round match against Mackenzie McDonald going to 4 sets, alongside his 5 sets first-round victory. The Russian 18th seed dropped his first set against the American, but then made a comeback to clinch the encounter. The final scoreline stood at 3-6,6-2,6-2,6-3. The 28-year-old started the new year well, winning the ATP 500 Sydney Tennis Classic against Andy Murray.
Meanwhile, Adrian Mannarino caused an upset in the second round, defeating 10th seed Hubert Hurkacz in straight sets. It was not just a victory for Mannarino, but an utterly dominating performance against a significantly higher-ranked opposition. The Frenchman would hope that his run continues and would look to make a deeper run in the tournament. He is currently ranked 69th in the world.

Aslan Karatsev vs Adrian Mannarino: Match Predictions
Aslan Karatsev is the higher-ranked player here, and has come into the tournament on good form having already won his first title of the new season. However, the Russian has looked unconvincing in both his matches so far, and would have to significantly improve to stand a chance against better opposition. However, he is supremely talented and is capable of changing everything in one match. On the other hand, Mannarino would feel that there is no better time to take on Karatsev following the latter’s unconvincing performances and would smell the chance of another potential upset.
Match Prediction- Karatsev to win in five sets.
