Aslan Karasev has been in a modest state for several months now. Since the final in Sydney in January, the tennis player from Vladikavkaz has won only five of the 16 matches he has played. On Sunday he suffered another disappointing defeat and in the first round of the ATP Championship in Lyon he lost 6:7 (7), 4:6 to Adrian Mannarino.

Mannarino, who recovered 1-5 in the first game and saved four set symbols, served an ace on Sunday and scored four out of ten break points. With Sunday’s win, the French broke a streak of six straight defeats.

In the second round, 33-year-old Mannarino will face Holger Ron, who is 14 years his junior. The Dane, the recent winner of the Munich event, started in Lyon by defeating another representative of the host, Arthur Rinderknech after two tiebreakers.

The young and talented Francisco Cerondolo also showed his good side. The 23-year-old Argentine won 6:2, 3:6, 6:3 with James Duckworth in under two hours. In the 1/8 Finals, Serondolo will play top seed Cameron Norrie.

The playoffs were also played on Sunday. Places in the championship were won by Manuel Jennard, Grégoire Barriere, Thomas Martin Echevery and Gilles Simon.

On the other hand, Yusuke Watanuki entered the “lucky loser” category in the playoffs. The Japanese replaced Benjamin Ponzi, who withdrew due to an adductor muscle injury.
