Bautista Agut: 'Djokovic is playing well, I have to deliver good tennis'

Roberto Bautista Agut defeated Guido Pella in four sets to reach the Wimbledon semifinals. In an interview to BBC just after the match, the Spanish player said: "I am enjoying playing on this court and I have enjoyed every match I've played.

Novak Djokovic is the No 1 in the world and playing well on grass. I will have to play good tennis if I am going to beat him." "It sounds amazing. I cannot be happier than now. Today I had a really difficult match and had to manage a lot of emotions on court.

It is a good opportunity for me to play a semi-final of a Grand Slam and I think I have done very well. Pella's a really good fighter and a really good player. Here every match and opponent is difficult. Today was a big challenge for me."

In an interview to Sky Sport, the former world No. 12 singles player Paolo Bertolucci commented on Roger Federer's chances to win his 21st Grand Slam title. "He broke so many records that it would be such a big one that he could retire.

I think it will be difficult that he manages to achieve it in a great tournament." Bertolucci also commented on the chances to potentially see Matteo Berrettini cracking the top 10 rankings: "Berrettini has some good chances, he is still young, he does not have to be in a rush and I think he can at least get into the top 20 rankings.

Then we have to see if the older guys allow him to do it because the Big Fours plus Berdych did not leave room for others in the previous years. He can raise a lot in the rankings and among the Italian younger players he is definitely the best."
