Reflections by Roberto Bautista Agut on defeating the Austrian wildcard in the Kitzbuhel final
20 in the world Being the favorite put pressure on Roberto Bautista Agut to perform well in the Kitzbuhel final, he acknowledged. The Kitzbuhel main draw’s third-seeded player, Bautista Agut, faced 205th-ranked Filip Misolic in the championship match.
Misolic sought to complete a string of unexpected victories by defeating former top-10 player Bautista Agut. However, Bautista Agut eliminated the Austrian wildcard with a score of 6-2 6-2, denying Misolic any chance of winning.
According to the ATP website, Bautista Agut stated of the match, “I enjoyed the final, I think I managed the pressure really well. I knew I was a little bit the favorite today, but he had so many impressive victories this tournament that I knew it was going to be challenging.
I did a great job during the game.
Now with 11 ATP victories, Bautista Agut
Although Bautista Agut had won the ATP tournament 11 times, this was only his second clay victory. Just before Stuttgart moved from clay to grass in 2014, Bautista Agut won Stuttgart and secured his second ATP title.
Bautista Agut now says he is glad to have finally achieved victory on clay once more. It had been a very long time since Bautista Agut had triumphed on clay. “I’ve done a lot of wonderful work on this surface, so it’s extremely special for me,” the speaker said.
After the match, 20-year-old Misolic on the other side expressed his admiration for Bautista Agut. Misolic, who is 14 years younger than Bautista Agut, felt privileged to face the older Spaniard in an ATP final. Following the outcome, Misolic said, “I want to congratulate Roberto.”
“I have watched you on television before, and it is an honor for me to play here against you in the final.” Bautista Agut will now take a little break from playing and begin preparing for the North American hard court tour.
