The step was a bit high, on paper. On the court, Adrian Mannarino believed he was going to overcome it. Friday in the quarterfinals of the Cologne tournament, the French lost in three sets against Alexander Zverev. Faced with the US Open finalist, Mannarino did better than defend himself, he pushed the German to his limits. He nevertheless ended up giving in 6-4, 6-7, 6-4.

After the loss of the initial round, which he let slip on his face-off, Adrian Mannarino quickly recovered and showed Zverev that he was not there to make up the extra part. Broken in the eighth game and on the edge of the precipice while his opponent was serving for the match, the 41st world broke in stride and held on until the decisive game, which he concluded with his second set point. In the decisive round, Mannarino once again cracked the first, in the seventh game. This time Zverev kept his commitment until the end. And finished the job. He will challenge Jannik Sinner for an enticing semi-final.

The other semi-final will pit Diego Schwartzman against Félix Auger-Aliassime. If Schwartzman struggled to get rid of Alejandro Davidovich 2-6, 7-6 (7/3), 6-1, the young Canadian set the record straight for him. Opposed to Yoshihito Nishioka who had swept him in three sets as soon as he entered the competition at Roland Garros, he took his revenge to win without trembling 6-3, 6-4 and thus reach the last four.
