Astana Open 2022: Felix Auger-Aliassime vs. Roberto Bautista Agut Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2022 Astana Open as Felix Auger-Aliassime takes on Roberto Bautista Agut in the first round on Monday, October 3rd, 2022.

Fresh from inspiring Team World to win a maiden Laver Cup title, Felix Auger-Aliassime is back to tour-level action at the Astana Open. The Canadian powerhouse has a treacherous draw in Nur Sultan, beginning with current World No. 21 Roberto Bautista Agut and potentially Daniil Medvedev in the quarters. Let’s take a closer look at this matchup in detail.

The turnaround from his surprise second-round defeat to Jack Draper at the US Open has been nothing short but terrific for Felix Auger-Aliassime. Back-to-back triumphs in team events rounded off a fine September for the Canadian, who guided his country to the final eight of the Davis Cup (notching a career-best win by ranking when he beat Carlos Alcaraz in Valencia) and playing an integral part in Team World’s maiden Laver Cup win in London. He will be one of the standout players in a stacked field at the Astana Open this week.

Roberto Bautista Agut barely put a foot wrong at the Davis Cup in his last tournament outing two weeks ago, winning all of his three singles rubbers as Spain sealed their place in the last eight. The timing couldn’t have been better for the 34-year-old who fell in the first-round of the US Open to J.J. Wolf in what has been an otherwise excellent season. With two titles to his name this year, will the Spaniard fill his trophy cabinet with another ATP 500 title at the Astana Open?

Felix Auger-Aliassime leads the head-to-head over Roberto Bautista Agut 3-0 on the ATP Tour. The two players met more recently at the finals of the ATP Cup, with Canada defeating Spain 2-0 – Auger-Aliassime clinching one of those victoriesover Bautista Agut. Beating Djokovic and Alcaraz in back-to-back team events will surely give the world No. 13 plenty ofoptimism heading to Nur Sultan for the Astana Open. And it is hard to see him falling here.
