Prediction for the match between Roberto Bautista-Agut and Marco Cecchinato. Both tennis players are able to demonstrate a very high-quality game on the dirt surface, so their battle for reaching the second round of the Madrid tournament should be rich in events.
The full analysis of the match can be found below.
The only face-to-face confrontation of the represented athletes, which took place on the courts of St. Petersburg in 2018, ended with Victoria Aguta in two games. Let's see if Roberto can repeat the long-standing success.
Agut is very close to returning to the top ten of the ranking of the best tennis players in the world, so now he is probably motivated to perform as productively as possible. We all know that at home, Roberto always tries to show himself properly. However, due to the fact that many talented players have appeared in the tour in recent years, it is becoming increasingly difficult for the Spaniard to fight for trophies.
Cecchinato, in turn, is in good shape for his modest level, but unfortunately, he cannot compete on equal terms with truly high-class opponents. It is clear that the former confidence in his own capabilities, Marko has lost almost completely, and to level this shortcoming he does not succeed. Perhaps in low-ranking tournaments, the Italian could perform well, whereas in major competitions he looks like a whipping boy.
