Roberto Bautista-Agut v Guido Pella Head to Head

The pair have played each other three times before, and Bautista-Agut has won every time.

Their first meeting was in the first round of the Australian Open in 2017, the Spaniard winning in straight sets. That was followed by two quarter-finals in 2019, on the clay of Munich and the grass of Wimbledon, and, although Pella claimed a set each time, he was still beaten.

Miami Semi-Finalist Bautista-Agut

Bautista-Agut’s best results in 2021 came at the start of the year, when he was a beaten finalist in Montpellier and Qatar.

And he carried that form over to the first Masters’ event of the year, in Miami, where he reached the semi-finals, beating Daniil Medvedev along the way.

Results have been more mixed since then, but he did reach the fourth round of Wimbledon and the quarter-final of another Masters’ tournament in Toronto.

He has not played since the US Open where his progress was halted at the third round stage by Felix Augur-Aliassime, beaten despite coming back from two sets down at one stage.

Bautista-Agut was given a  first round bye in Indian Wells, his best previous showing here coming in 2014 when he reached the fourth round.

Pella Beats Nur-Sultan Winner

Although like most South Americans Pella is happier on a clay court – his solitary senior tournament win in Brazil in 2019, and the four previous finals he had lost all came on that surface – he does not have a bad record in Indian Wells, having got to the third round here twice previously, including the last time the tournament was played two years ago.

And he got his latest campaign off to a winning start by upsetting Soon-woo Kwon from South Korea, the world number 56, who recently won his maiden ATP tournament in Nur-Sultan.

All of that seemed unlikely though as Kwon raced through the first set in just 30 minutes, dropping just one game in the process.

But Pella regrouped, broke Kwon early in the second set and, although he was broken in turn, Kwon could not hold his serve either and Pella had the advantage once more, enabling him eventually to take the set.

The third set was scrappy. Kwon was broken in the opening game and, although Pella then saved five break points on his own serve, he was soon broken again.

Three more games went against serve though, leaving the Argentine in the driving seat, and he was finally able to serve out for the match.

Bautista-Agut v Pella Prediction and Tip

The ‘Spaniard has won all three of their previous meetings, and there is little evidence to suggest the result will be different this time. Pella may have produced a minor first round upset, but he was hardly convincing against Kwon.
