Adrian Mannarino will not have lingered in Saint Petersburg. Eliminated from entering Roland Garros, the French suffered the same fate in the tournament organized in Russia. Against the Belarusian qualifier Ilya Ivashka, the 39th player in the world initially held his rank but, after an initial alert and two break points saved in the fourth game, the break was acquired two games later. After missing the double break to conclude the set, the 141st world has achieved its goals on its service. Taking the service of his entry opponent, Adrian Mannarino started the second round well but the Habs were caught in the wake. A scenario that recurred in the sixth and seventh games. Ilya Ivashka served for the match after taking the service of his opponent but the latter came back up to snatch a decisive game. However, on his second chance, the Belarusian ended the match (6-3, 7-6 in 1h55 ‘) to find Viktor Troicki or Denis Shapovalov in the second round. Borna Coric, seeded number 7, passed the obstacle Feliciano Lopez in two sets (6-3, 7-6 in 1h39 ‘).
