Daniil Medvedev and Roberto Bautista Agut are scheduled to face each other in the first round of the 2022 ATP Astana Open October 7.
Daniil Medvedev is in the quarterfinals of the US Open after playing some solid tennis in his first match since the US Open. Medvedev looks very dangerous for Roberto Bautista Agut, who has defeated him four times in five matches. The Russian has adapted well to Astana’s slow conditions, which actually help him win matches. He prefers faster courts because he can finish points more easily, but slower courts give him plenty of chances to put the ball back, which is the main issue for players here. You simply cannot break him down, but Bautista’s precise groundstrokes could. Prior to the event, Medvedev admitted to having reservations about his tennis, but he appears to be improving.
Roberto Bautista Agut has outperformed his own expectations this season, posting a 36-14 record. This event has been a continuation of his good play, as he has won five matches in a row, all of which have come after the US Open and indoors. He defeated Auger-Aliassime in round one and easily defeated Pavel Kotov in round two, indicating that he is at ease on the courts. Being 4-1 against Medvedev should boost his confidence ahead of this match, and he actually beat him the last time they met. He will obviously need to give it his all because the slow courts will not allow him to break down Medvedev as easily, but he can push him.
Daniil Medvedev and Roberto Bautista Agut are scheduled to face each other in the first round of the 2022 ATP Astana Open on Friday, October 7. The tournament is scheduled to begin on October 3 and end on October 9.
