When the weather forced Roberto Bautista finished his match against Joao Sousa yesterday, the same thing happened to his opponent today Brandon Holt. It took him five rounds to eliminate local player Aleksandar Vukic. He met Castellón’s man after four wins because he is from the previous stage.

Holt starts by giving a surprise

They found themselves in the first period where Bautista had a game where he created many chances but couldn’t get going. Moments later, he had to pay for the situation when he saw how the American broke his serve. Further, he forced him not to increase the gap, but finally holding the break in a safe position, Brandon closed the set 6-4.

It was just the beginning for Roberto, who suffered even more in the second set. Two entry breaks made it a great situation for Holt to push for the third round at the Australian Open for the first time in his career. Two games in which the Spaniard was able to solve even minimally in search of confidence, but seven break points in his possession are gone.

Reaction and emotional healing

Roberto Bautista Agut’s reaction came in the third period. After the corner of the first game, we had to pick up a break point. Since then, two breaks in the pocket, surviving that emotional upsurge, even if not all of them are there yet. At 5-2 he held on to win, but he found himself losing serve, but far from flustered in his next turn, he settled it so that the distance narrowed.

Bautista’s greater intensity from the bottom caused Brandon to lack that confidence in those aggressive shots. It reduced him a lot, and Roberto was the one who starred in the meeting in those moments. Two bankruptcies were added to that fund to tie the match that it was placed on a very steep slope.

Bautista was able to start the fifth very well with a scoreless break as Holt slipped to desperation. The duel was in the Spaniard’s hands, but it still had to be finished. It didn’t get too complicated and after another break Bautista capitalized on his second match point to eliminate a gutsy Holt at the Australian Open.
