In an interview with La Razon, Roberto Bautista Agut was asked if Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic's dominance is good for tennis. The Spaniard replied: "It's good for tennis that they are active, they push each other, they are in their own league and hopefully they are around for many years.
People want to see them. Each one has his gamestyle and you have to adapt your game, but in my case, I try to be solid, strong from the baseline." On his mentality during a match, the 29-year-old added: "I try not to make people see my feelings, be very focused on the match and not show them to my opponents when I get angry or I go through my worst moments.
I do not want to waste energy, just be focused." On why he has been injury-free for the entire season, Bautista Agut added: "I worked physically very well. I keep being consistent because it's very important for me not to get injured, doing prevention and be with a good amount of muscles."
On how it felt to celebrate his bachelor party after Wimbledon, he concluded: "Us players have a very few free weekends over the year and the calendar is a very packed one. Luckily my friends could be with me and share one of the best experiences as a sportsman, like at the Wimbledon semi-finals," said Bautista Agut, who will open his run at the US Open against Mikhail Kukushkin.
