At RG, one chance out of 16 to play the oldest qualifier Istomin, who subsequently doesn't manage a single break point.

Today he should have clearly lost as he couldn't keep the ball in play for more than 4 shots. How convenient Mannarino was unable to continue after 4 completed sets.

Some video of Mannarino with his brother shortly after the match leaked.

Federer was cruising in 4th regardless of the fall mannarino would have lost. The benifit of doubt about who could have won the 5th goes to the player with exprience and carrying momentum in the match.
