Playing styles and prediction

The Frenchman has had a good start to the season with wins over Hubert Hurkacz and Aslan Karatsev at the Australian Open as well as testing eventual champion Rafael Nadal. Mannarino plays a unique style with disguised power mixing with insane slices and dropshots with this combination making it difficult for any opponent.

Broady will need to be aggressive and show good rally tolerance in the big moments. The Brit will also need to take his opportunities when they come with Mannarino’s experience ensuring he plays the big points well. Whatever the result a positive performance will give Broady a platform to build on for the rest of the year.

Prediction: Mannarino in three sets.
