Stan Wawrinka was cut short today in his match with Adrian Mannarino at the 2015 Miami Open. The Frenchman beat Wawrinka in straight sets, and he continues playing like this, he could facing Rafael, Nadal, Novak Djokovic or Andy Murray. If that happens, it could be quite the match to watch.

Adrian Mannarino sprung the upset of the week at the Miami Open presented by Itaú, ousting seventh seed Stan Wawrinka in straight sets Sunday.

The 26-year-old Frenchman is playing the best tennis of his career, reaching his second straight ATP World Tour Masters 1000 fourth round. A finalist at the Heineken Open in Auckland to open the season, Mannarino is on the precipice of a career-high Top 30 spot in the Emirates ATP Rankings. He will face Dominic Thiem with a quarter-final berth at stake.

Thiem has been a force this week at Crandon Park and the Austrian young gun did not let up, outlasting Jack Sock 6-4, 6-3 in 84 minutes.

A potential glimpse into a future rivalry between two of the ATP World Tour’s hottest rising stars, the steadier Thiem fired 14 winners, while saving the lone break point faced to progress to the fourth round. The unseeded 21 year old claimed his 10th match win overall at the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 level and is in the midst of his most successful run, having also defeated 10th-seed Feliciano Lopez earlier in the week.

Sock, who was contesting just his second tournament of the year following pelvic surgery in December, is off to a strong start to 2015 after a Round of 16 finish in Indian Wells (l. to Federer). He did not drop a set en route to the Miami third round in defeating Go Soeda and Fabio Fognini.
