Peter won, but it took a lot longer than expected, he was up 5-4 and serving in the TB, lost both his service points then the next one to lose the ste, then got broken to open the 3rd, but he regained focus and won shortly thereafter, but he can't play like that against Mannarino and expect to win
I think Peter may have a better chance than some of us are saying, Mannario needed a 5th set tiebreak against Riba last year in the US Open, which is terrible.
I saw a lot of that match - Riba wasn't playing bad. And Mannarino just beat the guy who crushed Milos, so its all relative. Pound for pound Mannarino is a better player right now than Peter. You just never know with these early January tournaments though what form these guys will be in. Anyone has a chance.
Riba has 7 career victories on hardcourts, including futures and challengers and none on the ATP circuit.
well we'll see but i just dont have that much confidence in him after he had the chance to end things today in straights and didnt.
I dont think he has no chance, but if adrian is playing well he should beat peter because he is the better player.
