Wimbledon 2014: Andy Murray v Roberto Bautista Agut match preview
A look ahead to the third round match in the men’s singles
Friday 27 June 2014
Andy Murray admitted that his partnership with Amelie Mauresmo has already helped with his attitude and concentration on court as he breezed through the second round against Blaz Rola 6-1, 6-1, 6-0 in just 84 minutes.
The defending champion is likely to have a tougher time in the third round as he faces Roberto Bautista Agut, who has reached his career-high ranking (23) on Monday. In addition, the Spaniard has advanced to the fourth round of Australian Open earlier this year and won his first career title in ‘s-Hertogenbosch last week.
Despite that, all of the pressure will still be on Murray as Bati has never advanced this far in Wimbledon.
The two players have never met before. The winner will face either Kevin Anderson or Fabio Fognini in the fourth round.
Start: Friday, third match on Centre Court
Murray’s second-round match was his highest Wimbledon victory ever, as he only dropped two games.
Murray’s fastest serve in the second round was 127 MPH while Bautista Agut’s 124 MPH
Bautista Agut won his first ATP title this year, while Andy Murray hasn’t reached any final in 2014.
Murray to win 1.07
Bautista Agut to win 7.0
