Adrian Mannarino vs Alex Michelsen preview

Third seed Adrian Mannarino of France will take on Alex Michelsen of the United States in the second round of the Mallorca Championships on Wednesday, June 26.

Mannarino has had a pretty ordinary grasscourt season so far. He has lost in two of the three matches he has played on the surface. While he managed to reach the second round of the S-Hertogenbosch, he lost in the first round of the cinch Championships at Queen's Club.

The Frenchman earlier lost in the first round of each of the Madrid Open, Italian Open and French Open this year. At 35, he is one of the veterans of the ATP Tour and might not play tennis at the top level for too many more years.

Meanwhile, Michelsen,19, has hardly fared any better this year. He has lost in the first round of each of the Madrid Open, Italian Open, French Open, Stuttgart Open and Halle Open. However, compared to Mannarino, the American is at the opposite end of the spectrum, as far as their respective careers are concerned. Michelsen has just started and has a long way to go in his career.

Adrian Mannarino vs Alex Michelsen prediction

Mannarino had a very successful season last year, winning three titles. He also finished runner-up in Mallorca last time around. The Frenchman's experience and ability to grind out points might be helpful. However, Michelsen probably has the more powerful game of the two and would like to take the attack to Mannarino.

Still, the Frenchman's experience should see him through against the American youngster. Michelsen might be able to win a set to make it a close match, but Mannarino should emerge victorious in the end.

Pick: Adrian Mannarino to win in three sets
