The French Adrian Mannarino, 69th in the world, and Benjamin Bonzi, 52nd, lost as soon as they entered the running Tuesday at Roland-Garros. Mannarino, lacking results for several months was beaten 6-1, 7-6 (7/1), 6-2 by Argentinian Federico Delbonis (65th).
This time, he was no match for Delbonis, notably letting slip a great opportunity in the 2nd set where he led 5-2 before being joined and losing in the tie-break. Bonzi's match against Frances Tiafoe (27th) was tighter, but the Frenchman ended up losing 7-5, 7-5, 7-6 (7/5) after almost three hours of fighting.
The current N.3 tricolor has multiplied the unforced errors (45) against the American who offered his first victory in the Parisian Grand Slam.
