Djokovic vs Bautista-Agut
So, I watched Wawrinka - Bautista Agut yesterday and first off: Wawrinka is still far from his best. We saw some glipses of his old self here and there but his forehand is malfunctioning heavily. That being said, Bautista Agut made the match so hard for Stan as he was impeccable. His shot placement was amazing, he was serving at 76% on his first serve, he showed great mental strenght as he saved 3/3 breakpoints in the second set when he was serving for the match.
Djokovic followed up his 2-1 victory against Fucsovics with a 2-1 win vs Basilashvili. I saw some of that match and I won't draw too big conclusions from Nole losing a set there as Basilashvili is a great player on these fast courts. However, Djokovic wasn't having his best day on serve. He has been deteriorating in Doha for each match he's played after that first round demolition of Dzumhur and I think he's going to have a long battle against Bautista Agut which will prove to be his biggest task here yet.
