Wawrinka vs Bautista Agut Prediction

The Spaniard makes up for his lack of a powerful shotmaker like Wawrinka with his consistency. The three-time Major champion should be able to prevail if he isn’t too exhausted from his challenging three-set victory; if not, Bautista Agut will probably prevail.
