Andy Murray vs Roberto Bautista Agut Prediction, Head-to-Head, Preview and Live Stream- Basel Open 2022

On Thursday, the second round of the Swiss Indoors will feature a matchup between Andy Murray, a three-time Grand Slam champion, and world No. 22 Roberto Bautista Agut.

In the opening round, Laslo Djere faced up against Bautista Agut. In the first set, he lost a break early and fell behind 2-1 before quickly tying the score and regaining serve. The two players held each other’s serves until the 10th game, when the Spaniard broke his rival’s serve to win the set. The second set was incredibly one-sided, with Bautista Agut winning five straight games to take the match 6-4, 6-1, and end his three-match losing streak.

Andy Murray was originally scheduled to play Sebastian Korda in the first round, but Roman Safiullin was given the assignment. The former World No. 1 managed to square the score after the Russian went up a break to lead 3-1 in the second set, forcing a tie-break that Safiullin won. The British player then achieved a serve break in the sixth game to take a 4-2 lead. He had more than enough of a lead to win the set and need a deciding. In the decisive set, Safiullin raced out to a 4-1 lead and appeared to be winning, but Murray had other ideas. The three-time Major winner won the following five games to prevail 6-7(5), 6-3, 6-4.
