TennisSection previews the 2022 ATP Cup as Roberto Bautista Agut takes on Dusan Lajovic on Day 5 on Wednesday, January 5th, 2021.
Will Dusan Lajovic get his first singles win for Team Serbia this year at the 2022 ATP Cup? Will Roberto Bautista Agut continue to cruise through tough opponents here as he is showing us how good he really is? Which country and player will come out here and leave it more on the line at the 2022 ATP Cup?
Dusan Lajovic came out to play against Cristian Garin in his second match and was playing quite well for the majority of the match. However, once the match went to a third set, Dusan had to withdraw 0-3 down with an injury. Unfortunately this meant that the tie went down to the doubles and Team Serbia lost it. Dusan is a great player on his day and I am sure he is working to recover at his best to be ready for this match, but it is still unsure whether he will step on the court against Roberto Bautista Agut, and even if he does, in what condition will he be at the 2022 ATP Cup?
Another day, another dominant performance by Roberto Bautista Agut. The Spaniard is yet to lose a set here at the 2022 ATP Cup, beating top 10, Casper Ruud, in 2 quite straight forward sets. Roberto always seems to find another level at the start of the year in Australia, and he is showing us exactly that. With his amazing all round game, ability to hit the lines, and his speed of shot, the Spaniard will know that Team Spain have a very solid chance here. Will he be playing Dusan Lajovic is the question now, or will it be Filip Krajinovic?
Roberto Bautista Agut and Dusan Lajovic have met 6 times before, with Roberto Bautista Agut leading the head to head 6-0. 4 of their 6 encounters have been won by Roberto in very easy straight sets. There other two were tight. If this was a day where Dusan seemed on top of his game and ready to fight, I would perhaps see him stealing a set. However, he is far from that and injured, so even getting onto court is still in question. But if he does come out to play at the 2022 ATP Cup, I think Roberto will make easy work of him.
