Alex De Minaur world number 31 started in China against John Millman in the first round and won easily in 2 sets. One of the most awaited matches was his against Andy Murray in the tournament and they made a great show in which the Australian won with 4-6, 6-2, 6-4. In the quarterfinal, he faced world number 14 Borna Coric but De Minaur won in 3 sets – 6-2, 4-6, 6-4 and continue his great performance on hard after reaching the round of 16 in the US Open and the round of 16 in Cincinnati.
Roberto Bautista-Agut world number 10 started from the round of 16 because of his high ranking and there he beat Pablo Andujar 7-5, 7-5. In the quarterfinal, he faced the Italian Andreas Seppi and again won in 2 sets 6-2, 6-2. His high-ranking Bautista-Agut owes to his consistency after the Spanish reached the quarterfinals in both Montreal – Masters and Cincinnati which gave him a lot of ranking points. In the US Open, he lost in the 1st round but he proved so far that this was an individual case and he is still in a great form. His best performance this year was his semifinal against Novak Djokovic in Wimbledon but the Serbian beat him in 4 sets and later won the Grand Slam after beating in an epic match in the final Roger Federer in 5 sets.
This will be the first match between these two tennis players and betting sites gave an advantage to Bautista-Agut who don’t lost a set so far in Zhuhai and needs to be a lot more fresh because De Minaur played 3 matches so far and in the last two the Australian had to play 3 sets and fight till the end for the wins so I will bet on Bautista-Agut to win that game.
