Australian Open: Kevin Anderson Overcomes First Round Loss to Advance to Next Round

Share This:

South Africa’s Kevin Anderson seems to have dealt with his traditional poor first-round performances at Melbourne Park with a 6-3, 5-7, 6-2, 6-1 win over Adrian Mannarino.

Anderson has lost in the first round at the tournament six times, including to Kyle Edmund last year. It was the fifth seed’s first win in Melbourne since 2015 after warming up for the Australian Open by winning his sixth ATP tour title at Pune, India.

Mannarino became upset when Anderson took a lengthy bathroom break after the third set, complaining to the umpire. The Frenchman’s mood wasn’t improved when he lost his service game to open the fourth set.

Mannarino recorded his best performance at Melbourne Park by advancing to the third round last year. He went into Monday’s match having lost in the first round at Doha and at last week’s Sydney International.
