Brandon Nakashima vs Roberto Bautista Agut – Match Predictions

Nakashima and Bautista Agut are not among the top favorites in Halle but whoever moves forward to the next round will have a real chance to go all the way.

Roberto Bautista Agut to win

Bautista Agut is not enjoying a successful first half of the season. Still, he has been quite good in the opening round and we already know he can be very solid on grass after he made it to the semifinals at Wimbledon in 2019. The Spaniard is in excellent physical shape despite already being 35 years old. Nakashima can respond to his game to a certain point but Bautista will find a way to advance to the next round.

First set over 9.5 games

Both players have moves well on grass court and have reliable serves especially if they hit high percentage of the first set. In the previous round, both Nakashima and Bautista Agut went over 9.5 games in the opening set and that would be the case in this match as well.

Nakashima is coming off a 4-6, 6-4, 7-5 win over Mikael Ymer in the opening round of ATP Halle. That was his first win after losing in the opening rounds in the Roland Garros against Denis Shapovalov and Rosmalen Open where he failed to Emil Ruusuvuori. Nakashima’s best result this season was the semifinal in Lyon where he lost to Arthur Fils.

Roberto Bautista Agut

Bautista Agut is currently ranked at No. 23 in the world, not even close to his career best ranking which was No. 9. The Spaniard is 13-14 for the season and 1-0 on grass.

The 35-year-old is not going through a easy period of the season as he has not won more than two matches in his last 12 appearances on the ATP tour. Bautista Agut’s best result this season was the final in Adelaide in January where he lost to Son Woo Kwon.
