Seppi can cause a second-round upset by sending Wawrinka packing

Italian Andreas Seppi, who is ranked 85th in the world, should be able to make a decent fist of things in this contest against Wawrinka. What has some appeal from the underdog perspective is that the Italian has consistently been past the second round in each of the last five Australian Open appearances.

Granted, he has never been past the fourth round of a Slam and at this stage his career you wouldn’t expect him to do so. But the 35 year old has put together a little bit of match sharpness this season with appearances at Bendigo and then Auckland. He still has a bit of scrap about him and could be in this match.

Our betting prediction:
Seppi Match Outright
3/1

(odds taken 20:11 GMT, Tuesday 21 January)

At last year’s Australian Open he powered his way past Australia’s Jordan Thompson in the second round in straight sets. Obviously Wawrinka is a tough competitor to face. But Seppi’s win rate at the Australian Open is better than at any other Grand Slam. So that suggests that he is a bigger threat at the start of the year than at any other time. Seppi stepped straight into form at Melbourne Park with a first round victory over Miomir Kecmanovic.

 

Wawrinka’s second round slips at Melbourne Park

Former Australian Open champion Stan Warinka has gone home at the second round stage in his last two appearances at Melbourne Park. In fact, in four of his last eight Grand Slam appearances, that has been the point at which he has packed his bags. The title at Melbourne Park that the Swiss player took was back in 2014.
