Prediction and Conclusion

Roberto Bautista Agut is far from the form he was in most of his career, but he has kept his competitive spirit and is not a player who should be underestimated despite his age. The Spaniard defeated two serious players in the qualifiers and made it to the second round, so he has a legit chance against world No. 8. Hubert Hurkacz recently won his first title on clay, so his confidence is at a high level. Bautista Agut leads in the head-to-head matches, but Hurkacz is the one who won the last two. The Polish are the major favorites in this match, but looking at their previous matches, in four of the five, there was at least one tiebreak. So this will be another tight battle that will last over 21.5 games in total.
