Spanish tennis superstar, Roberto Bautista Agut has made it into the quarterfinals at Wimbledon. At this stage of the tournament, Roberto Bautista Agut will play against Guido Pella from Argentina.
Roberto Bautista Agut played extremely well in the previous round as he defeated Benoit Paire in straight sets. The receiving was especially strong for Agut as he won 45% of his return points which allowed him to break Benoit Paire’s serve on 5 occasions. The serving was also very strong for Roberto Bautista Agut as the Spaniard won 70% of his service points which allowed him to win 93% of his service games.
It has been a very strong tournament for Roberto Bautista Agut as the Spaniard is yet to lose a set. In this tournament, Roberto Bautista Agut has already eliminated the number 10 seed, Karen Khachanov. Agut made the quarterfinals of the Halle Open prior to arriving at Wimbledon which shows that the Spaniard is in good form.
On the other side of the coin, Guido Pella defeated Milos Raonic in 5 sets. It was a determined win for Pella as he trailed 2-0 but fought back to win the final 3 sets. The receiving was impressive from Pella as he managed to break Raonic’s serve on 3 occasions. Considering his opponent, winning 3 return games was a big accomplishment by Pella.
It has been a good tournament for Guido Pella as the Argentine superstar defeated Kevin Anderson in the third round. The competition is expected to get tougher for Pella since Agut is in outstanding form.
Guido Pella and Roberto Bautista Agut have played each other twice in the past. Agut has won on both occasions. The most recent match between these two players was earlier in the season at the Bavarian International where Roberto Bautista Agut won in 3 sets.
This should be a very close match since both Guido Pella and Roberto Bautista Agut have been playing exceptionally well. As far as predicting a winner is concerned, I am going to pick Agut to win this match. Roberto Bautista Agut has been more efficient in this tournament and the Spaniard has looked in greater control. Agut has a 2-0 record against Pella and I see the Spanish superstar being good enough to beat the Argentine for the third time.
