Australian Open 2022: Roberto Bautista Agut vs. Philipp Kohlschreiber Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2022 Australian Open as Roberto Bautista Agut takes on Philipp Kohlschreiber in the Round of 64 on Thursday, January 20th, 2021.

Will Roberto Bautista Agut get the win? Will Philipp Kohlschreiber pull off the upset? This will be an interesting one, where we have a top Spanish star with success in Australia in the past taking on a German veteran. Who will move on to the Round of 32 at the 2022 Australian Open?

Roberto Bautista Agut got through his first round with a little bit of a slow start, dropping a set to a less experienced player. He will likely book himself a spot in the Round of 32 anyway though as he takes on German veteran Philipp Kohlschreiber. Kohlschreiber has been trying to get back to a high level, but being older and not playing much tennis nowadays, it will most certainly be quite the challenge for him to take on top 20 player RBA. He will likely take the win, but it will be in four or five sets as he aims to move on to the last 32 here at the 2022 Australian Open.

Philipp Kohlschreiber got a solid win in straight sets to set up a much tougher meeting with the Spanish No. 2 in Roberto Bautista Agut. In order to take him out, he will have to focus on playing an aggressive game, which he is certainly capable of considering his history and game style, but RBA is in much better form, and he’s able to do quite a bit with his versatile shots, being consistent and aggressive with them at times, damaging his opponents a great deal with his inside out forehand. I expect him to fall to RBA eventually, even if he can put up a fight as he attempts to stay competitive for a place in the third round at the 2022 Australian Open.

Roberto Bautista Agut and Philipp Kohlschreiber have met five times before, with Philip Kohlschreiber leading the head to head 3-2. Kohlschreiber leads their head to head 3-0 on the clay, and RBA leads their head to head 2-0 on hard courts. They haven’t played each other since 2018, but I think they will both have a pretty good idea of what they want to do. RBA will likely go at him hard, mixing in a little aggression with his very consistent style. Let’s see if the Spaniard can continue his campaign into the third round here at the 2022 Australian Open.
