Baghdatis won their only previous meeting In february this year. He won on a hard court in straight sets.
I was surprised that Bautista Agut had some problems with Bedene in the last round. He didn’t serve that badly and was only broken once but it took him a set and a half to get a break through.
Baghdatis was in control of his match with Donald Young last night but let the second set slip with a late break. Things were tight in the 3rd set but Young called the trainer after he was broken for 3-4.
This should be a close match and Bautista Agut may be looking to prepare for next week where he has 4th round ranking points to defend..
Some value on Baghdatis. A lay on Bautista Agut below 1.40 would be nice.
