Daniil Medvedev is playing rather solid tennis in his first match since the US Open, and he’s in the quarterfinal. Two solid wins leave Medvedev looking very dangerous for Roberto Bautista Augt, a player who beat him four times in five matches.
The Russian has adapted well to the slow conditions in Astana, and they help him win matches. He generally likes faster courts because he can finish off points easier, yet slower courts give him plenty of chances to put the ball back, and that’s the main problem for players here.
You simply can’t break him down easily, but Bautista could do it with his precise groundstrokes.
Medvedev admitted doubt in his tennis before the event, but he looks better and better with each match. This will be a proper test but one the Russians can pass.
Bautista Agut faced Felix Auger-Aliassime in the first round of the Astana Open and won the opening set 6-4.
The Canadian took a 3-1 lead in the second set, but the Spaniard broke back immediately and leveled proceedings soon after. There were no further breaks of serve, and the set went to a tie-break. Bautista Agut won it 8-6 to seal his place in the second round, where he was up against Pavel Kotov. He beat the young Russian 6-1, 7-6(5) to book his place in the quarterfinals of the Astana Open.
Interestingly, Bautista Agut leads 4-1 in the head-to-head against Medvedev. The pair have locked horns twice this season, with the Russian winning 6-2, 6-4 at the Halle Open while the Spaniard won 6-3, 6-2 at the Mallorca Championships.

Medvedev vs Bautista Agut Prediction
Medvedev will enter the match as the favorite on paper, but Bautista Agut should not be written off, given his positive head-to-head record against the Russian.
He might not be the most elegant player, but he is efficient and knows how to do the job. It’s very difficult to hit past the lanky Russian, making him one of the best defenders on tour. His powerful serve and groundstrokes also make him a formidable attacking threat.
Bautista Agut has served brilliantly at the Astana Open, winning 75.6% of first-serve points (59 out of 78) and 66% on his second (35 out of 53). He will have to keep up those numbers to challenge the Russians.
Medvedev might be trailing in the head-to-head, but he possesses more ability than his Spanish counterpart and should be able to get past him on Friday. Pick: Medvedev to win in three sets.
