Roberto Bautista Agut v Matthew Ebden Head to Head
The duo has met only once on the tour – back in the 2014 ATP s-Hertogenbosch. The Spaniard won that match in straight sets.
Agut is Enjoying a Phenomenal Run
The 30-year-old Spaniard has started the 2019 season on an excellent note. He recently reached the No. 18 position in the world, courtesy of his consistent performance on the tour so far.
He started his season in Doha, where he won the title after defeating the likes of Stan Wawrinka, Novak Djokovic, and Tomas Berdych. He then participated in the Australian Open where he made it all the way to the quarterfinal, only to lose to Stefanos Tsitsipas.
With a win-loss record of 9-1 before coming to Sofia, one can only wonder how far will he go this season. He has been seeded fourth for this tournament and has been given a bye into the second round. Last year as well, he had a couple of good spells on the tour. He was a semifinalist in Halle and followed that with a runner-up feat in Gstaad.
Matthew Ebden – A Player with Much to Offer
Ebden is a prominent doubles player with four ATP doubles titles in his bag. His most notable stint came in the 2013 Australian Open, where he won the mixed doubles title with Jarmila Gajdosova.
Considering his form this year, he has failed to impress the spectators. The Australian lost in the first round in Sydney and the very next week, he suffered a second-round defeat in Melbourne at the hands of Rafael Nadal.
Nonetheless, he is a hard-working player who is known to deliver interesting results every now and then. For instance, in the previous edition of the Shanghai Masters, he reached the quarterfinal after defeating Frances Tiafoe and Dominic Thiem.
Bautista Agut v Ebden Prediction and Tips
The Spaniard will start this match as the overwhelming favourite to win. Given his recent form and momentum, Bautista Agut should be able to reach the next round comfortably and we expect him to win this match in straight sets.
You can watch & bet on Roberto Bautista Agut v Matthew Ebden here on Wednesday, February 6. The match will start at around 6:00 pm local time (4:00 pm BST).
