Switzerland's Stan Wawrinka survived a scare against Frances Tiafoe in the first round match of the Mexican Open 2020. After two hours and 45 minutes, Wawrinka won 6-3, 6-7 (4-7), 7-6 (7-1) to move to the Round of 16 in Acapulco. On his way to the victory, the three-time Grand Slam champion saved nine breakpoints and won a total of 93% of first-serve points.

Not only that, Wawrinka hurled a total of 35 aces with the last one finishing the match. In what was a fierce fightback from the 22-year-old Tiafoe, he went on to save a total of four match points, making it harder for Wawrinka to get past the winning line.

Wawrinka will now be up against Spain's Pedro Martinez in the next round. It will be the first encounter between the two. The world number 16 could very well face the top-seeded Rafael Nadal in the semis if both players win their next two encounters.
