Adrian Mannarino vs Yosuke Watanuki: US Open 2023 Preview

Adrian Mannarino broke his struggles on surfaces other than grass and gained momentum ahead of the US Open. Before his notable run at the Cincinnati Masters, where he reached the quarterfinals by defeating players like Felix Auger Aliassime and Mackenzie McDonald, he had suffered defeats in 11 of his last 13 matches on non-grass courts. Despite participating in every US Open since 2008, he has never advanced past the third round, encountering five first-round exits, including a loss to underdog Gijs Brouwer in 2022. However, the experienced French player has displayed consistent performances on US hard courts since 2022, with four quarterfinal or better finishes in 2022 and three such results in 2023. It remains to be seen if his recent success in the United States will translate to an improved showing at the US Open.

Yosuke Watanuki is making a comeback to the US Open after a four-year hiatus, but his preparation leading up to this moment has been less than ideal. Unfortunately, both of his recent ventures in the United States during this phase ended on a disappointing note. He suffered a bagel from Ugo Humbert in Washington and had to withdraw from the semifinal against Constant Lestienne at the Stanford Challenger. Despite these setbacks, the talented Japanese player has shown improved consistency this year, especially in Grand Slam events. Prior to 2023, he had never featured in a Grand Slam main draw. However, in both of his main-draw appearances in Grand Slams this year, he managed to advance to the second round.
