Bautista-Agut vs Fognini by Tennisguy
Bautista-Agut is ranked 45 and Fognini is 13. They have met 5 times with the score being 4-1 in favor the italian.
The main reason why I am inclined to take this bet is because of the way Fognini played in his first round match here against Joao Sousa that ended 5-7, 7-5, 6-4. He looked incredibly tired and out of shape and the only reason he managed to win was because Sousa got very emotional when he was so close to the win(he was up 7-5, 5-2 before completely dropping his level). I think Fognini might have invested a little to much on the Davis Cup last week because he looks really tired for this tournament. And also the type of match he had against Sousa will not do any good for his physical condition in this match to come.
Bautista-Agut had a very easy match against Vasek Pospisil who is trying to get his game back in shape after a long period of absence. He won 6-2, 6-2 and looked in his best shape. He doesn't really have a good record against Fognini but because the italian looks in really bad shape, I believe he will have a big advantage in this match. He has had some good wins this season even if they where on hard court, to win against players like Berdych, Del Potro. Nieminen, Paire will boost your confidence no matter the surface you play on, and it also shows that Bautist-Agut has character.
I think Bautista-Agut will physically dominate Fognini and force the italian into committing a lot of unforced errors. In my opinion the spanish player has a very big chance in this match and if he plays his card right he will be victorious.
