The 22-year-old American does not yet clearly justify the advances made to him by experts during the transition from youthful to adult tennis. Frances Tiafoe now occupies only 82nd place in the world ranking, showing the last time extremely unstable game.
Tiafoe is holding the seventh tournament in 2020 with statistics of victories and defeats 4-6. The American started the current season unsuccessfully, losing at the start of Doha, Auckland and the Australian Open. This month, Frances boasts the quarter finals of Dallas and Delray Beach, where he lost to fellow countryman Kudl and Frenchman Humbert, respectively.
Here Tiafoe speaks for the third time. His debut took place in 2017, when the American lost at the start of the main draw only on the tie-break of the decisive set to the strong Argentinean Del Potro. Last season, Frances was in the eighth finals, where he lost to compatriot MacDonald 7-6, 5-7, 3-6.
34-year-old Swiss holds only the third tournament of the current season. Still, the years have already taken their toll and Wawrinka clearly understands that she is not ready to play in the previous regime of weekly competitions in order to show good results.
Stan opened the 2020th year in Doha, where he confidently reached the semi-finals, having won dry victories over Jeremy Chardy and Alash Beden. Then he unexpectedly lost in three sets to the Frenchman Korenten Moute 6-3, 5-7, 3-6.
Next was the Australian Open, in which the Swiss reached the top eight, having beat Damir Dzumhur, Andreas Seppi, John Isner and Daniel Medvedev in turn. But he could not cope with the German Sasha Zverev 6-1, 3-6, 4-6, 2-6.
Wawrinka already has experience playing in this tournament, having arrived in Acapulco for the fifth time. “Stanimal” debuted here back in 2011. The best result is the semi-finals of 2012, where the Swiss did not find arguments against Spanish left-hander Fernando Verdasco 3-6, 3-6. Last season, Stan was in the quarterfinals of this tournament, having been defeated by Nick Kyrgios (5-7, 7-6, 4-6).

Tiafoe vs Wawrinka Predictions
Tiafoe is still in search of his game, so he is unlikely to be able to fight back Wawrinka. Swiss now looks much better. He also came to Mexico to protect his glasses. Perhaps you should give preference to Stan.
