Bautista Agut has won nine ATP singles titles (9–7 in finals), the biggest being the 2018 Dubai Duty Free Championship, an ATP 500 tournament. His biggest final to date was the 2016 Shanghai Masters, where he lost to Andy Murray. His best result at a major was at the 2019 Wimbledon Championships, where he reached the semifinals.
As a junior, Bautista Agut compiled a singles win/loss record of 41–13, reaching as high as No. 47 in junior world rankings in July 2006.
2009–2012 Pro tour highlightsEdit
Bautista Agut qualified for his first Grand Slam appearance in the 2012 Australian Open. He went on to lose in the first round to Ricardo Mello in straight sets. On 13 August 2012, Bautista Agut broke into the top 100 for the first time after strong performances in challenger tournaments. He reached his first ATP-level quarterfinal at St. Petersburg later that year, losing to Fabio Fognini.
2013: First professional finalEdit
Bautista Agut's first tournament of 2013, in Chennai, saw him reach his first career ATP final. He defeated world No. 6 Tomáš Berdych in the quarterfinals in three sets and faced world No. 9 Janko Tipsarević in the final, to whom he eventually lost after winning the first set.
Bautista Agut then followed his maiden career final with his career best Grand Slam performance at the 2013 Australian Open. After defeating Fabio Fognini in a first round five-setter, Agut wasn't able to get the better of Jürgen Melzer in the following round.
In the second major of the year, Bautista Agut created more history after a second round performance meant that he had a achieved a new career best performance after failing to even qualify at the main event for three consecutive occasions. Agut's tournament ended to local, Jérémy Chardy.
At the third Slam event of the year, Bautista Agut went on to make another second round appearance after defeating Russian qualifier Teymuraz Gabashvili in the first round. However, Agut was unable to cope with the challenge of taking on his childhood idol, David Ferrer in the second round, losing in four sets.
Immediately after Wimbledon, Bautista Agut took part in the MercedesCup in Stuttgart. Agut made it all the way to the semi-final where he lost to eventual champion Fabio Fognini.
On 15 July, Bautista Agut broke the top 50 for the first time. One week later, his ranking improved by one placing which gave him his career best placing of 48.
In the fourth and final Slam of the year, Agut ensured another best performance, and another second round finish. After beating Brazilian, Thomaz Bellucci, in the first round, Agut faced Ferrer in the second, where Bautista lost in four sets.
Bautista Agut finished his year with another quarter-final appearance at the St. Petersburg Open, with eventual champion, Ernests Gulbis, preventing the Spaniard any chance from advancing further in the tournament.
At the conclusion of the 2013 season, Bautista Agut finished inside the top-60 with a rank of 58.
2014: Career breakthrough: First two titles and Top 15 rankingEdit
Agut then participated in the Australian Open. Roberto began his campaign with a first-round, straight-sets, victory over unseeded American Tim Smyczek. In the second round he faced the world no. 5 Juan Martín del Potro. He recorded one of the biggest upsets of the tournament, beating del Potro in five sets to record his first win in seven matches against a top 10 player.
Agut's surprising performances earned him a call-up to Spain for their clash with Germany in the Davis Cup. Agut lost both of his rubbers to Philipp Kohlschreiber and Daniel Brands. Germany won the tie 4–1.
In March, Agut participated in the first Masters 1000 event of the year, the Indian Wells Masters. In the second round he faced Tomáš Berdych. Agut secured his second top 10 win of the year, winning in three sets after losing the first. His tournament ended in the fourth round with a defeat to Ernests Gulbis.
In May, Roberto participated in the Madrid Masters. Roberto made it all the way to the tournament's semifinals after beating former top-10 players, Tommy Robredo and Fernando Verdasco and in-form Barcelona finalist Santiago Giraldo en route to this stage. In the semifinal, Agut was defeated by world No. 1 Rafael Nadal.
Roberto then played in the French Open. This was Roberto's first Grand Slam where he was one of the top 32 seeded players, seeded 27th. Roberto beat Paolo Lorenzi, and Frenchman Benoît Paire but he was unable to beat world no. 6 Tomáš Berdych for a second time in 3 months, ending his tournament in the third round after a four-set defeat.
In preparation for Wimbledon, Agut played in the Topshelf Open, a grass-court tournament in 's-Hertogenbosch. He was the tournament's third seed. Agut won the title, his first ATP title, defeating former champion Benjamin Becker in the final in three sets.
After Wimbledon, Roberto went back to playing on clay courts as the third seed in the Mercedes Cup in Stuttgart. In the semifinal, Agut recorded an upset, beating defending champion Fabio Fognini for only the second time in his career. This result led Agut to take on Lukáš Rosol in the final. This was Roberto's third professional ATP tournament final. Agut won the final in three sets, claiming his second 250-level title.
In the last slam of the year, the U.S. Open, Roberto reached the fourth round after defeating Andreas Haider-Maurer, Tim Smyczek, and Adrian Mannarino on the way to taking on the no. 2 seed Roger Federer for the first time. Despite Agut's efforts, he could not stop Federer's dominace at the net, and he therefore lost in straight sets. This was Agut's best ever US Open campaign and he equaled his best career Grand Slam result (2014 Australian Open).
Agut went to Russia to play in the Kremlin Cup tournament held in Moscow. Agut advanced all the way to the final where he took on the 2014 US Open champion, Marin Čilić, in the final. His tournament ended with a tight straight-set defeat.
After his outstanding season, Agut won the ATP's Most Improved Player award.
At the end of the best season in his career so far, Agut finished 2014 with a singles ranking of world no. 15, and a doubles ranking of world no. 255.
2015: Drops out of top 20Edit
In April, Agut travelled to the clay courts of Barcelona to play in the Barcelona Open. Agut made it to the quarter-finals where he was defeated in a tight 3-setter against defending champion Kei Nishikori.
Later that month he travelled to Germany to play in the 2015 BMW Open in Munich. Agut made it all the way to the semi-final where he eventually lost to top seed Andy Murray.
One month later, Agut travelled to England to play in the year's third major. Agut was the 20th seed in the Wimbledon Championships. Agut advanced to the fourth round to take on 7-time Wimbledon Champion and tournament second seed Roger Federer, after wins over Ruben Bemelmans, Benoît Paire, and Nikoloz Basilashvili. Agut lost the match in straight-sets.
In September, Agut was the 23rd seed in the 2015 US Open. After victories over Pierre-Hugues Herbert, Pablo Carreño Busta, and David Goffin, Agut had reached the fourth round of a major for a second consecutive time. He took on the World number 1, from Serbia, Novak Djoković. Agut's tournament finished with a four-set defeat. Despite losing, Agut did manage to repeat his best performance in New York for a second consecutive year.
He was the second seed in the Kremlin Cup in Moscow. In a repeat of the previous years final, he lost against Marin Čilić by the same scoreline (4–6, 4–6) as the 2014 final.
He was the seventh seed in the 2015 Valencia Open. With most of the seeds falling early, it was a shock draw with Agut being the only seeded player remaining by the semifinals. Agut reached the final where he led by a set and a break against João Sousa but failed to consolidate, going on to lose the match, which was the story of his 2015 season in tournament decisive matches.
At the end of 2015, Agut finished outside the top 20 with a ranking of 25.
2016: Two more ATP titles, back into the top 20 and first Masters finalEdit
In the 2016 ASB Classic Agut knocked out defending Champion Jiri Vesely, third seeded American John Isner and second seeded Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, his first top ten scalp in two years, on his way to the final where he took on talented American Jack Sock. Roberto was crowned champion after the American retired in the second set.
In the 2016 Australian Open Agut was seeded 24th. After defeating Martin Kližan and Dušan Lajović, Agut took on 12th seed Marin Čilić in the third round. Agut earned his first ever win over Čilić in a shock straight-sets result setting up a match-up with the sixth seed, Tomáš Berdych. Agut lost in a tough five setter, denying him a chance at his first Grand Slam quarterfinal.
Agut's first tournament after the Australian Open was the 2016 Garanti Koza Sofia Open based in Bulgaria. Agut was the top seed and made it all the way to the final where he took on Serbian second seed Viktor Troicki. Agut won the match and became the inaugural Garanti Koza Sofia Open champion. This was his fourth career title and second title in 2016.
In May, Agut played in the year's second major as the 14th seed. Agut reached the fourth round of the 2016 French Open after he defeated Dmitry Tursunov, Paul-Henri Mathieu, and Borna Ćorić. His quest for a place in a Grand Slam quarterfinal was again ended by a top ten player, this time by world number one, Novak Djoković. This result was his best result at the French Open and equals his best at Grand Slam level.
In early August, Bautista Agut was a representative for Spain at the Olympic Games. Agut advanced to the quarterfinals in Rio de Janeiro after beating Andrey Kuznetsov, Paolo Lorenzi, and Gilles Müller in the earlier rounds. Agut's quest for an Olympic medal ended after a defeat against the eventual silver-medalist Juan Martín del Potro.
In the penultimate Masters 1000 event of the year, the Shanghai Masters, Bautista Agut made it to his first masters 1000 final, defeating Bernard Tomic (who was forced to retire because of abdominal pain), qualifier Taylor Fritz, Viktor Troicki, 2015 finalist Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, and top seed and defending champion Novak Djoković. This was the first time he had defeated a world no.1 player and the first time he had beaten Djoković in his career. In the final, he lost to Andy Murray in straight sets.
Bautista Agut finished 2016 ranked number 14 in the world.
2017: Another two 250 titlesEdit
Agut began his 2017 season in Chennai where he made it all the way to the final. In the final, Agut took on Russian, Daniil Medvedev. Agut went on to beat his opponent in straight sets, securing his fifth career title.
At the Wimbledon Championships, Agut was the 18th seed. Agut went on to beat Andreas Haider-Maurer, and Peter Gojowczyk, on his way to a third round meeting with ninth seed Kei Nishikori. Agut caused an upset beating Nishikori for the first time and claiming his seventh top-10 scalp of his career. However, Agut wasn't able to win back to back top-10 victories, after succumbing to a straight-sets defeat against Marin Čilić in the fourth round.
In the 2017 Rogers Cup, Agut demonstrated his best Masters 1000 performance for the year. After winning his first two matches, Agut took on Frenchman Gaël Monfils in the third round. After losing the first set, Agut was able to secure an unlikely victory, securing his first win over the Frenchman in three tight sets. Agut however then was unable to break his winless drought against Roger Federer, in the quarter-finals, losing in straight-sets.
A couple of weeks later, Agut took part in the Winston-Salem Open. Agut won all of his matches, without dropping a set, to win his second 250 title of the year, and sixth of his career.
Bautista Agut finished the year ranked number 20 in the world.
2018: Champion in DubaiEdit
In Auckland, Agut made it to his 13th ATP final appearance. In the final, Agut took on second seed Juan Martín del Potro, who had yet to drop a set in the tournament. Agut went on to beat his opponent in three sets, clinching his second Auckland title, and ending a three-match losing streak against the tall Argentine.
Bautista Agut lost in the first round of the 2018 Australian Open, meaning that his streak of 10 consecutive third round appearances in majors came to an end. It was also his first loss in the opening round of a major since the end of the 2012 season, marking 20 consecutive majors where he won his opening match.
In March he went on to win his biggest title yet in the ATP 500 tournament in Dubai, losing only one set along the way and beating in-form Frenchman Lucas Pouille in the final. Agut also became the first player, outside the top-10, to win the event since Fabrice Santoro in 2002.
Bautista Agut finished the year ranked 24th in the world.
2019: Australian Open quarterfinal, Wimbledon semifinal & top 10Edit
Agut opened his season as the seventh seed at the Qatar Open. He defeated Matteo Berrettini, qualifier Guillermo García López, and three-time major champion Stan Wawrinka before facing world number one Novak Djokovic in the semifinals, whom he defeated in three close sets. In the final, he prevailed over veteran Tomáš Berdych to claim the title.
At the Australian Open, he first faced former world number one and five-time Australia Open finalist Andy Murray, defeating him in a grueling five-set contest. In the second round, Agut defeated John Millman in another five-setter. In the third, he prevailed over 10th seed Karen Khachanov in straight sets to reach the fourth round of a Grand Slam for the tenth time in his career. He reached his first Grand Slam quarterfinal after he defeated the 6th-seed Marin Čilić, in five sets. In the quarterfinals, he was defeated by 14th seed Stefanos Tsitsipas, who was fresh off a victory over defending champion Roger Federer, in four sets. With this performance, he earned enough points to re-enter the top 20 in the world rankings.
Agut beat top seed Djokovic yet again at the Miami Masters. At Wimbledon, Agut reached his second major quarterfinal after victories over Peter Gojowczyk, Steve Darcis, world number 9 Karen Khachanov, and Benoît Paire. He was the only player in the draw not to lose a set leading into the quarterfinals. Despite losing his first set in the quarterfinals he defeated Guido Pella in four sets to reach his first Grand Slam semifinal. In the semifinals he was defeated by Djokovic in four sets.
Agut is a counterpuncher with a decent all-around game. He is able to play offensively with his forehand but thrives off his defensive ability with his consistency and quickness around the court. He has a clean flatter strike on both sides and his game is better suited for hard courts (as compared to many of his Spanish compatriots). On the forehand, which is by far his primary weapon, he uses close to an eastern which allows him a flatter hit (instead of the whipping spin hit by Nadal). His backhand is easily the weaker wing and the side opponents look to target. His serve lacks pace but can create decent angles and slice.
Roberto's nickname is "Bati". His father, Joaquín, is a former football player and currently a banker; mother, Ester, who passed away unexpectedly in May 2018, owned a clothing store in Castellón de la Plana. Bautista Agut started playing tennis at the age of five when his mother signed him up to play on the weekends. His favourite shot is his forehand. His idols growing up were Juan Carlos Ferrero and David Ferrer.
Beyond tennis, he enjoys horseback riding (he owns seven horses) and playing various sports, mainly football. He supports Villarreal C.F. and CD Castellón. He played football for Villarreal C.F. until he was 14 when he decided to focus on his tennis career.
