TennisSection previews the 2023 Qatar Open as Roberto Bautista Agut takes on Marton Fucsovics in the Round of 32 on Tuesday, February 21, 2023.
Will Roberto Bautista Agut get the win? Will Marton Fucsovics pull off the upset? This will be an interesting one, where we have the defending champ take the court in his opening match. Who will triumph and move through to the Round of 16 at the 2023 Marseille Open?
Roberto Bautista Agut won this tournament last year, as he has done before. He plays his best tennis on a quick hard court, and something about the conditions here really suit his game. Marton Fucsovics is a tough opening match to get his title defense underway, but I expect RBA to grab this opening win and book himself a spot in the Round of 16 at the 2023 Qatar Open.
Marton Fucsovics has a tough match ahead of him as he takes on 5th seed Roberto Bautista Agut. If the Hungarian wants the victory, he’s going to have to take on the role of the aggressor. There are few players better than Bautista Agut at grinding on these faster courts, forcing you to make mistakes. He’s countered players like Djokovic and Medvedev doing this in the past. Let’s see if Fucsovics can somehow find a way out of this one here at the 2023 Qatar Open.
Roberto Bautista Agut and Marton Fucsovics have met 3 times before, with Roberto Bautista Agut leading the head to head 2-1. The reality for Fucsovics coming into this matchup is that he’s not in the best form and RBA will own him on this type of court. I don’t expect a close match as the defending champion looks to begin his title defense at the 2023 Qatar Open.
