John Isner v Roberto Bautista Agut Head to Head
The gents have met thrice on the tour and Isner leads by 2-1 in the head to head tally. They last met in the Auckland Open in 2016 where Agut drew his first blood and defeated Isner in three sets.
Agut Does it Again
Roberto Bautista Agut has achieved something this season that not many players have been able to do: defeat Novak Djokovic not once, but twice.
He first did this in Qatar Open semifinal and following that win over Djokovic, he defeated Tomas Berdych to win the tournament. He has done it again in Miami now, this time in the fourth round. The Spaniard dispatched Djokovic 1-6, 7-5, 6-3.
Before the Serbian, he defeated Fabio Fognini and Janko Tipsarevic.
This quarterfinal run was much-needed by Bautista Agut, who lost in the early rounds in the Indian Wells Masters and ATP Dubai. However, he had a promising run in the Australian Open where he reached the quarterfinal.
Can Isner Keep Agut at Bay?
Isner, who is the defending champion in Miami, is fairly more experienced than Agut. Even though he is yet to win a title this year, he has been in a fairly superior form than his Spanish adversary.
The American reached the semifinal in ATP New York Open, Delray Beach, and the Mexican Open. He carried this consistency forward to Indian Wells, where he made it as far as the fourth round before bowing down to Karen Khachanov.
Meanwhile, in Miami, he has had a very comfortable run so far. He first defeated the Italian qualifier Lorenzo Sonego and then moved past Alberto Ramos Vinolas in straight sets. His most recent opponent was Kyle Edmund, whom he defeated 7-6(5), 7-6(3).
Isner v Bautista Agut Predictions & Tips
This fixture is far too close to call. Isner has the experience and momentum in his favour while Bautista Agut is a player who is capable of delivering big surprises. Moreover, the Spaniard has already defeated a few top 10 players this season like Djokovic and Marin Cilic while Isner hasn’t been able to give a discernible performance on the tour.
Isner’s massive serve may prove to be advantageous for him but Agut’s agility will be tough to deal with. Expect this fixture to be an entertaining one.
Tip: Three sets in the match: 11/8 (Bet365)
