Sam Querrey would be riding high on confidence after a magnificent performance in the quarter-final of the Mallorca Open against third-seeded Roberto Bautista Agut. Defying all odds, Sam thrashed Bautista Agut in straight sets. After dominating the proceedings in first set, Sam was taken to the tie-breaker in the second.

Sam won the game by the barest of margins but has improved his gameplay after that. On the other hand, Adrian Mannarino is coming off a hard-fought quarter-final.
Mannarino dropped the second set against Feliciano López in the quarter-finals but made a terrific comeback in the third to confirm his place in the semi-final.

Adrian Mannarino vs Sam Querrey: Prediction
Adrian Mannarino has had a terrible season prior to the Mallorca Open 2021. He was knocked out early from the French Open, Queen’s, and Stuttgart Open 2021. Finally, the French tennis star has been able to gain some winning momentum in the Mallorca Open and he would like to carry it forward.
