Berdych leads their previous matches 3-2. The most recent was in April 2015 on clay. Berdych won in straight sets.
Bautista Agut has won both their previous hard court matches. I am very surprised to see him make the 4th round. He won the title last week in Auckland and I expected him to tire before now. His first 2 matches this week went to 5 sets and his opponents were on paper much weaker than him so it seemed just a matter of time before last week caught up with him. . Then he beat Cilic in straight sets!
Berdych dropped his only set of the tournament in the 3rd round to Kyrgios. He showed great composure to deal with that potentially difficult encounter. Berdych will not make the mistakes that Cilic did and I think he wins in 3 or 4 sets.
Back Berdych if he loses set 1 . He starts around 1.27 .
