Another tip today from the Hamburg tournament comes from the match between the Iberian Roberto Bautista Agut and another favorite of the hosts, Dominik Koepfer, a match that is the last of the day scheduled in the central arena and which will start after 19:30. many details, but also the prognosis found, in the following.
Roberto Bautista-Agut: Team form, news and statistics
Roberto Bautista Agut returns to the circuit after being eliminated from the US Open. The Iberian managed only one round 3 at the American Open and I say only one round 3, because at the value and pretensions of the Spaniard, Bautista could reach at least one round higher.
However, it was a surprising failure in front of a Vasek Pospisil in very good shape.
This does not excuse the defeat of the Iberian, who is now already thinking about the last Grand Slam of the year.
Until then, however, Agut has to warm up on the slag, as he skipped the 2 tournaments on the red surface after the US Open.
The absence from Rome surprised, leaving the Iberian only the competition in Hamburg in preparation for the French Open.
The slag has always been the favorite surface of the Iberian, so a good tour in Germany can help Bautista reach the desired level.
The first match here was a good one, a victory in 2 sets in front of Nikoloz Basilashvili. That’s right, the Georgian is a modest player on the red surface, so success is not a landmark.
That matters less for Agut, who had time to settle certain things in the game against the Georgian.
The dispute against one of the local favorites will be a bit more disputed, but the difference in value is an obvious one and I am sure that Roberto will be able to access the quarters without too much effort.
Dominik Koepfer: Team form, news and statistics
Dominik Koepfer impressed everyone with his trip to Rome. Starting from the qualifications, the German reached the semifinals, where he lost to no one else, Novak Djokovic.
And he didn’t lose anyway, Dominik managing to take a set to the world number 1.
Undoubtedly and perhaps his best performance at a masters series tournament, which gives him excellent morale before Roland Garros.
Dominik did not take a break this week and will also play at his home in Hamburg, where he will have his fans with him. Sure, in a limited number, but he won’t have to play in the empty stands. In the first match here, Koepfer passed in 3 sets the Japanese Yoshihito Nishioka, showing a good and tireless tennis after a long journey in the Italian capital.
Even if he impressed in Rome, it’s hard for me to believe that the German could repeat the performance here and reach the penultimate act of the competition.
Already in the second round he will meet Bautista Agut, one of the best players on the circuit, and in the event of a success, the German will beat Rublev in quarters, another top player.
So there is little chance for Dominik to succeed in another sensational journey, but it is clear he will fight for his chance in the match with Bautista Agut.

Tennis Prediction of the Day Roberto Bautista-Agut vs Dominik Koepfer
An extremely interesting match is announced. Koepfer comes with an excellent morale from Rome, where he impressed everyone, but at the same time fatigue accumulated.
It will be difficult for the German to maintain the same rhythm in Hamburg, especially since in front of him will be one of the most tenacious players on the circuit.
Despite the good form shown, I think Koepfer will bow to Agut, an extremely valuable player.
I go on the success in the minimum of sets of the Iberian, at an excellent quota offered by those from Unibet.
