Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut dropped just six games en route to beating world No. 119 Go Soeda at the ATP Cup but after the match insisted it was his most difficult match at the tournament. Bautista Agut, ranked at No.
10 in the world, didn't let Soeda make any surprises in their ATP Cup clash as he saw off the Japanese 6-2 6-4 to contribute in his side's 3-0 win over Japan. The Spaniard never lost his serve, all while twice breaking Soeda in the first set and once in the second set to claim a comfortable straight-set win.
"Today was, I think, the most difficult match,” Bautista Agut said, per the ATP Cup. “I think it was also the first match with the sun, with the heat. The ball felt much different, flying more and the court was faster.
I had more difficulties today, and I think I handled it well." Also, Bautista Agut demolished Georgian world No. 678 Aleksandre Metreveli 6-0 6-0 in his ATP Cup opener, before beating Uruguay's Franco Rocadelli 6-1 6-2 on Monday.
