Denis Gremelmayr VS Adrian Mannarino match analysis

Since the Clement - Gasquet match is off, I will take this pick for today instead. Mannarino made leaps of improvement lately and he showed that during the Australian "tour". Here, he faces an opponent that spends a lot of time in smaller tournaments and even there, he does not achieve much success. Therefore, I expect Mannarino to take care of him and keep this match short. He is a class above his opponent and still improving, while Denis is already having problems keeping up with his age. I think that the handicap is coverable even in the case of three sets, because Gremelmayr sometimes has fitness issues if the match gets tight. Young Mannarino will certainly not have that and his game is pretty solid. With many favorites out, he may also see this as a good chance to achieve something on the ATP tour early in the year. He certainly has the ability to do that and I am not sure how will Gremelmayr cope with that. My bet is that he will simply not be able to make any progress in this match. Good luck.
