Andy Murray vs Roberto Bautista-Agut 21.01.2023
Former world number one and multiple grand slam winner Andy Murray continued his quest to get back to the summit of the sport by showing a lot of grit and grind to win the marathon five-setters in both of the opening two rounds of this year’s Aussie Open. The Briton is certainly a pale shadow of his old self and his grueling win over Kokkinakis in the last round did him no favors ahead of this matchup.
Spaniard Roberto Bautista-Agut has been far from his best too but still remains an imposing figure on the court. He dropped the opening two sets to American Brandon Holt but recovered and won the next 3 sets to move on to this round. He will look to avoid any such pitfalls against Murray, who he has had the better of in recent meetings.
We fancy Roberto Bautista-Agut to come out of the gate firing, particularly after the scare he had from the 215-ranked Holt in the last round. He has pretty much destroyed Murray in their last couple of matchups and with Murray’s five-setters having taken a toll on him, he should be able to continue his dominance over him here. We are therefore backing him to win the opening set.
