This evening, around 21:00 London time, the Spaniard Roberto Bautista-Agut, 13th on the ATP Rankings,
will face Italian Andreas Seppi, 81st on the ATP Rankings, on a 1st round match of the US Open.
Bautista-Agut is a player that prefers clay courts, but that is being a nice surprise on hard courts.
Since he was an absolute beast at Winston-Salem, not dropping a single set, and dominating every match he played.
He is in excellent form and I think the Spanish will be one of the favourites to go far in this Grand Slam.
He has a really good forehand and he is really experienced, so he has everything needed to get a good result here against this opponent.
The Italian Andreas Seppi is a very inconsistent player, who prefers to play on clay, and usually doesn’t play very well on hard court tournaments.
He played 3 matches at Winston-Salem, getting knocked out by Struff 2-1, after beating Bedene and Tipsarevic.
I believe that he will be beaten today by his opponent due to the quality difference between the two and also due to the psychological strength that he, in my opinion, lacks.
Roberto Bautista-Agut vs Andreas Seppi Betting Tip and Prediction:
I think that Bautista-Agut will “sweep” this match in three unanswered sets, and that’s what I’m going to bet on:
