TennisSection previews the 2023 Australian Open as Stan Wawrinka takes on Alex Molcan in the Round of 128 on Monday, January 16, 2023.
Will Stan Wawrinka get the win? Will Alex Molcan pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where we have the former champion of Melbourne taking on an exciting but challenging young player. Who will triumph and move through to the Round of 64 at the 2023 Australian Open?
Stan Wawrinka has been looking pretty good lately all things considered. He’s gotten some notable wins and I suspect that he isn’t quite done yet. Let’s see if the Swiss legend has what it takes to get past Alex Molcan, a tough first round indeed, but particularly on a quick hard court I absolutely still favor Wawrinka for a potential mouth-watering class in the 2nd round against Auger-Aliassime here at the 2023 Australian Open.
Alex Molcan has been known to play some great tennis in the past, but it’ll take pulling out all the stops to take down Stan Wawrinka, despite the fact that Wawrinka has been out of it with injuries and is aging quickly, Wawrinka is still holding out and continuing to play some great tennis. While Molcan will absolutely be a competitor in this one, it could get very interesting as Wawrinka looks to advance here at the 2023 Australian Open.
Stan Wawrinka and Alex Molcan have never met before, with this being their first career meeting. Molcan is ranked quite ahead of Wawrinka, but in terms of their current levels, I’d have to take Wawrinka for who is the better player at the moment. Although it won’t be easy, Wawrinka should have what it takes, barring fitness or injury issues, to get through this one and move through to the Round of 64 at the 2023 Australian Open.
