One player relived the glory days on centre court while the other is just starting to create her own history.
Molik needed a wild-card to enter the main draw but destroyed the morale of world No 37 Roberta Vinci , of Italy, in the 1-6 6-3 8-6  first round thriller .
Conversely, Stosur barely raised a sweat as she showed no mercy to American wild-card Lauren Davis, 17, and won 6-1 6-1.
Alicia Molik and Samantha Stosur remain the main Australians in the draw since the elimination of Lleyton Hewitt and Jelena Dokic. Both will highlight day 4 at Rod Laver Arena.
The top half of the draw will be played on the Men's side, while the bottom half of the draw will seal the second round stories on the Women's side.
World number one Rafael Nadal will also be in action against  American Ryan Sweeting, as will 2009 US Open champion Juan Martin Del Potro, who will take on Marcos Baghdatis in a blockbuster match.
