Alex Molcan has already shown he knows how to win as the underdog in Australia, beating veteran Stan Wawrinka in the first round to set up this tie. The 37-year-old is no longer the player he once was, but with two sets out of five on the verge of tiebreaks, Molcan had to hold back his courage to emerge victorious. It was the Slovak’s first victory since October, but the young Canadian will present a very different type of test.
Felix Auger-Aliassime did not have a good time against Vasek Pospisil in the first round. Pospisil won the opening game 6-1, but his 22-year-old opponent won the next three games in a row to eliminate his compatriot, although two of them did get tiebreaks. Many have tipped Auger-Aliassime to win a Grand Slam in the not too distant future and with four titles won in 2022 he will try to reach the final stages here in Australia.
