A top 10 player of note, the Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut has bloomed into an all-court player with time and has often challenged some of the best in the world with his counter-punching game. If you are looking to buy and use Roberto Bautista Agut’s racquet here’s all the information about it along with its specifications and modifications if any.
Bautista Agut’s consistent improvement over the course of his career can be seen from the manner in which he has gone about the Grand Slams.
A multiple-time ATP tournament winner, Bautista Agut failed to make it to the main draw of any of the first seven majors qualifications he featured in before his maiden main draw appearance at the 2012 Australian Open. That was his only Grand Slam main draw showing that season.
In 2013, he won a match at all the four majors, while between 2014 and 2016, he reached the fourth round of at least one Grand Slam each season.
Upping the ante in 2017, Bautista Agut made it to the fourth round at Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon and the third round at the US Open before bursting through in 2019 with a couple of performances to remember.
At the Australian Open, the Spaniard defeated Andy Murray, John Millman, Karen Khachanov and Marin Cilic, three of them in five sets, before losing to Stefanos Tsitsipas in the quarterfinals. And then at Wimbledon, Bautista Agut went one better.
Beating Khachanov and Benoit Paire, he finally fell in the semifinal to the eventual winner Novak Djokovic. He is one of the few players outside the Big Three to have beaten Djokovic at least thrice in his career.
Despite more than half a dozen titles on hard court surfaces including one at the ATP 500 Dubai and a final appearance at the Shanghai Masters, Bautista Agut has an all-round game which has given him success across different surfaces.
A striking forehand helps the Spaniard’s offensive game but that hasn’t taken away from his defensive game either which keeps him in the point. And despite a weak serve and not the strongest backhand, Bautista Agut has had the results to vie for.
