Roberto Bautista Agut vs Alejandro Davidovich Fokina Preview
Roberto Bautista Agut is coming off a great week at the Montpellier Open, reaching the Final and beating some strong opponents along the way. Although Roberto Bautista Agut lost in the Final to David Goffin, he showed us the tennis we have been waiting for him to play this year. RBA lost 7-5/4-6/2-6 but he will be filled with confidence due to the great week.
Alejandro Davidovich Fokina just came from the Montpellier Open where he put on a very solid performance, reaching the quarter finals of the tournament, only to lose to Egor Gerasimov in a very tight 3-set encounter. Fokina was the favourite going into that match, however, he faced a lot of issues with his right ankle, which eventually just prevented him from moving too much towards the end of the third set. Alejandro is definitely a player to watch and he is a player the game needs I believe.
