Adrian Mannarino’s season has been far from impressive. He’s split his 46 matches thus far, and hasn’t really drawn much attention. But it’s worth nothing that he’s found most of his success on the hard courts. The Frenchman kicked off the year with a win at the Noumea Challenger, and owns a pair of quarterfinal finishes at Sofia and Delray Beach.
Mannarino, who’s coming off a pair of first-round exits at the US Open and at St. Petersburgh, might be able to regain his confidence back at Chengdu next week. If so, that can only mean trouble for his opponents.
Juan Monaco is an interesting, yet very risky long shot to consider. A win for him at Chengdu is being overly optimistic, but still, there’s a decent chance that the Argentine can pull out some upsets. Monaco won his second Houston title earlier this season, and has experienced a number of tough losses against top-tier players like Andy Murray, David Ferrer and Rafael Nadal.
Those numerous setbacks, in particular, have definitely helped Monaco improve different aspects of his game and especially his mental approach. Next week’s Chengdu Open could finally be the best opportunity for him to utilize everything he’s learned thus far.
Yen-Hsun Lu hails from Taiwan, a country which is geographically close to China. That being said, it’s safe to consider him as a home-crowd favorite for the upcoming Chengdu Open. Other than that though, betting on him might not be such a wise move. Lu’s victories this season have mostly come from Challenger events. He did, however, make a strong impression at the Winston-Salem Open last month, finishing as a quarterfinalist.
