TennisSection previews the 2023 Marseille Open as Stan Wawrinka takes on Zizou Bergs in the Round of 32 on Monday, February 20, 2023.
Will Stan Wawrinka get the win? Will Zizou Bergs pull off the upset? This will be an interesting one, where we have the Swiss legend looking to make another run on indoor hard courts. Who will triumph and move through to the Round of 16 at the 2023 Marseille Open?
Stan Wawrinka played a solid tournament in Rotterdam, losing in the quarterfinals to an on-fire Jannik Sinner. Wawrinka has a nice draw here to get himself into the conditions and secure a first-round win. Zizou Bergs, like any opponent, will not be easy, but Wawrinka is definitely playing above his ranking at the moment and I expect a solid performance from him here at the 2023 Marseille Open.
Zizou Bergs has a tough first match coming up against the legendary Stanislas Wawrinka. If Bergs wants to get the win, I think his best is to wear Wawrinka down, trying to have long rallies and relying on his physicality, one of the main deterrents to Wawrinka’s game as he ages. Let’s see if the Belgian can make something special happen at the 2023 Marseille Open.
Stan Wawrinka and Zizou Bergs have never met before, with this being their first career meeting. It’s a first-ever meeting between the pair, and while I do favor Wawrinka, we never know for sure what his level will be physical, although I’m inclined to pick Wawrinka to grab this one in straight sets and send himself into the last 16 of the 2023 Marseille Open.
