Roberto Bautista Agut v Steve Darcis Head to Head
The pair have met twice on the tour so far. The Spaniard has won on both occasions.
Bautista Agut in Solid Form with Three Consecutive Wins
The 31-year-old has been putting in impressive performances year in year out for a number of seasons now. His win percentage for every single season since 2014 has been almost 60% or well above.
He has also won seven titles during the same time. Last year he reached the last eight at the Australian Open and in a season of firsts reached his maiden Grand Slam semi-finals at Wimbledon and broke into the top 10 rankings for the first time in his career.
He has given his team three singles victories in the ATP Cup without dropping a set. His unflamboyant style on and off the court largely keeps him away from the limelight coupled with the fact that he will always be the second-best Spanish player on tour.
Veteran Darcis has Done a Remarkable Job for Team Belgium so far
35-year-old and world number 200, Darcis has been a big reason that team Belgium has made it this far. His two singles victory included a win over world number 52 Cameron Norrie. A victory that ensured that Belgium had a better points difference then Bulgaria and they qualified as one of the second-placed teams.
His heydays are well past him, and his most noteworthy achievements on tour came in the 2007 & 2008 seasons. He won two titles in those seasons and reached the last eight at the French Open in 2008. The most famous win of his career was when he beat Rafael Nadal in the first round of the Wimbledon in 2013 — becoming the first player ever to beat the Spaniard in the first round of a Grand Slam.
Due to persistent injuries and elbow pain, he has already announced that he will be retiring post the 2020 Australian Open. So after missing out on Davis Cup twice where he was a losing finalist for Belgium, this will be his last chance to give his country a title.
Roberto Bautista Agut v Steve Darcis Predictions & Tips
This is a very straight forward tie with Agut Bautista as a strong favourite. The Spaniard has not lost a single set in the last five matches on tour and looks in solid form. Darcis has done an admirable job so far for his team, but even the most hopeful of his fans will not be thinking of an upset here.
