ATP s’Hertogenbosch: Mannarino’s Match Delayed to Tuesday, Goffin Knocked Out Early

The ATP 250 tournament in s’Hertogenbosch kicked off on Monday in the Netherlands, but rain disrupted the schedule, resulting in only one match being played. French player Adrian Mannarino was unable to compete and will have to wait until Tuesday to start his campaign on his favorite surface. The 35-year-old will face Italian qualifier Stefano Napolitano in his opening match, with Napolitano playing his first grass-court tournament since 2019.

Meanwhile, the sole match that took place saw Belgian player David Goffin suffer an early exit at the hands of Italian player Luca Nardi, who is relatively inexperienced on grass. Goffin, a former Top 10 player, faltered towards the end of both sets, ultimately losing 7-5, 7-5. After his strong performance at Roland-Garros, where he reached the third round before falling to Grigor Dimitrov, Zizou Bergs will also have to wait for his chance as his match against local player Tim Van Rijthoven was postponed. Van Rijthoven won the tournament in 2022.
