Adrian Mannarino, in the first round valid for the ATP 250 in Auckland, lost in two sets 4-6, 6-7 against the American Jeffrey John Wolf. Despite the defeat, however, it was a balanced match between the two tennis players where the Frenchman, during the beginning of the second set, sent the audience into raptures after a truly impressive point.
The 34-year-old expert wowed everyone, including Wolf who couldn't help but applaud his well-crafted technical stroke. Mannarino, who returned to win an ATP title last season after three years, will start his Australian Open next week where he will have to defend the round of 16 he won last season when he had to surrender only to future champion Rafael Nadal.
