Tennys bounces Stan out of Open

Stan Wawrinka celebrates after tasting victory on his return against Ricardas Berankis

Former champion Stan Wawrinka wasn't sure if he was ready to play the Australian Open after left knee surgery previous year left his behind in his preparations.

The United States' Tennys Sandgren on Thursday defeated ninth seed Stan Wawrinka 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 to qualify for the third round of the Australian Open tennis tournament.

Stan Wawrinka feels great to be back after his first-round victory at the Australian Open on Tuesday but is still experiencing pain in the left knee that required surgery last season.

"The most important thing is that I could play my game not thinking about the ankle".

"As long as I enter on the court, and I don't feel any big injury, I'm not going to retire [from a match]".

"I only had surgery five months ago", Wawrinka told the Associated Press.

"My plan is to leave here and go back to practice, especially fitness-wise at the beginning", Wawrinka said of his future plans.
