Re: Adrian Mannarino Cheering Thread

Argh, what should I do? What do you mean, is there a chance he loses to this Brunken guy??
I'll be really pissed if I go on Sunday and Adrian is already out, but Sunday would be much more interesting.

Re: Adrian Mannarino Cheering Thread

Don't be sorry for me, but for Adrian!
I went to Hamburg today, I saw the match. It was great to see him in person, but he was so gutted, poor boy...

Re: Adrian Mannarino Cheering Thread

I asked him about his knee before the match, I know he must be so sick of that question, but he explained in detail why he keeps playing, etc. It's a real headache. :-/ He was very, very nice!
He looks much better in person than in pics. Nice eyes, great smile too.

It looked like he was alone in Hamburg. I would only recognize the father, don't know how the brothers look like, but he was alone before his match and he didn't seem to look at anybody in particular during the match. I hope I'm wrong and there was somebody to cheer him up after his match because he seemed so down.

Brunken is a hardhitter, the kind of players who bore me to tears. But I have to say he played a good match. It was driving Adrian insane because Brunken kept painting the lines. Every close shot of Brunken was in, every close shot of Adrian was out, it really was quite insane! On MP again - Adrian had a little bitter, disillusioned smile then.

At the beginning I thought Adrian had a problem with his shoulder, he gave Brunken a 4-0 lead ^^ and kept touching his shoulder after each serve. But he stopped doing that after a while, so I guess/hope the shoulder is fine.
Actually, his serve was the only thing working in his game afterwards. I so badly wanted to cheer his winners, but there weren't any. :-/ So I was cheering his service winners!
I don't remember if he even played one of his gorgeous dropshots. He let Brunken totally dominate the rallies at times, it was painful to watch.

Still, I'm very glad to have seen the match because of his antics, he's quite a character on the court! He really made me laugh, even though it wasn't funny.
When he was broken again at 3-2 (?) in the 2nd set, he was just frustrated from then on and started to soliloquize for the rest of the match. He was whining that he's been so unlucky this year ("je suis tellement poissard, moi, cette année!"), etc.
He didn't even go to his chair for the last changeover, went over to the other side of the court and waited for Brunken.
He was still talking to himself when leaving the court, I couldn't hear what he said because it was too far from me, but I heard him shout the scoreline of his match, he was so mad!

Sorry for the long match report, but I'm so glad to have seen him in person, even if the match was a complete mess. Terrible match and fight from him, obviously, but he was touching.
His whiny antics reminded me a bit of Coria too (it's positive coming from me, I found Coria highly entertaining).

Re: Adrian Mannarino Cheering Thread

I took an insane amount of pics too. A guy in Hamburg called me "clic clic" (each time he bumped into me, he was saying "clic clic!" ^^)

Hope you are enjoying it, even if your man bumped out.

Re: Adrian Mannarino Cheering Thread

I had never noticed he has a piercing in the ear:





They're not even good, the pics don't do him justice at all, he always looks the same in them, while he's so entertaining to watch. I didn't catch the best antics because I was too busy watching then.

That was just the first half, as you can see.
I'm back in Berlin already, I have a lot of work for Monday, I could go only one day this week-end. I'm so relieved I decided to go on Saturday or I would have missed the Mannarino show!

His whiny antics reminded me a bit of Coria too (it's positive coming from me, I found Coria highly entertaining).
The long match report is very appreciated, now watch me respond in equally long fashion.

It's nice that you got to speak with him, he is very nice to talk with, so laid back and friendly (well, he was with me anyway). The knee problem is annoying, indeed, really seems to have messed with his confidence for this season. Agree about how good he looks in person, especially when he is not sulking (although that can be attractive too!).

I'm going to help you identify his brothers with some pictures of them at Wimbledon:
This is Morgan (Zahirah wanted a picture of him, so I ended up taking this and then we ended up talking, I really like Morgan):



Here, watching Adrian




and here's Daniele in the pink shirt (I think he's his brother )



Do you recognise either of them as being there? I hope he had someone there for him anyway since it was such a crappy loss.

Like I said on your Facebook, the 1st time I saw Adrian live he played dreadfully too but I still fell in love with his game, I don't know what it was in that match that I could possibly have enjoyed though, since both him and Eysseric were really bad. Must have been his character, I think he also hit a classic dropshot, which made me think of Coria and I was a fan ever since. Hope you get to see him play a good match in person soon because there are very few things better!

I see he gave one of those disillusioned smiles again, seems to be becoming a regularity unfortunately.

I love listening to him talk to himself, since it helps me learn so much more about him as a player. It's always very interesting to watch him, even when he plays bad because you know he is still going to be entertaining. It makes me sad to hear he was talking about his bad year in that way though. Poor Adrian.

His whiny antics remind me a lot of Coria too, I guess that's partly why I like him so much.

Thanks for the great report Fran and hopefully he will play a lot better next time you see him! Hope you continue to enjoy Hamburg, as I will enjoy living your experiences on here.

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?

Logically, Adrian has an eldest brother (Morgan) and a youngest sister (Iris on this picture)

Re: Adrian Mannarino Cheering Thread

Wow, thanks! I haven't seen any of those faces there, but it's hard to tell now. I hadn't done my homework properly before my day trip, I hadn't checked the whole Mannarino family.
I think he has another older brother indeed, but I'm not sure either.

I just realized by seeing my post quoted that I called his opponent Beurken, what a Freudian slip! His name was Brunken, of course.

I see he's entered Segovia (outdoor hard - starts on the 3rd of August), maybe he will try other ATP qualies in the mean time? The Saturday match just didn't happen, he needs to play another match soon. Unless there really is something wrong with his shoulder, of course, but I don't think so because he didn't seem to mention it when he started to moan.
He also made me think of Calimero, btw, with his white cap, complaining that life was so unfair with him.

For the next week, he's always registered on Umag, Los Angeles and Gstaad's entry lists (alternates' list, n°18 in Umag, n°15 in L.A and n°19 in Gstaad).

To be continued ...

Re: Adrian Mannarino Cheering Thread

Adrian entered the qualies of Montreal. He's only the #5 alternates of USO MD http://www.menstennisforums.com/show...58#post8870558 We already know that Nalby & Muller are out and many others players are doubtful so it means he could enter the draw directly without WC or qualies.
