Top 3 players at the inaugural 2020 ATP Cup
#2 Roberto Bautista Agut: 6 wins in 6 matches
The unheralded Roberto Bautista Agut, more than happy to cede limelight to his illustrious compatriot Rafael Nadal continued his love affair with team competitions, winning all 6 of his singles matches at the 2020 ATP Cup following his 2 wins at the Davis Cup finals in Madrid last year.
One of two players to win all his 6 singles matches at the ATP Cup, the other being Novak Djokovic, Bautista Agut was the only one not to concede a set in any of his matches. The world no. 9 provided Spain the lead in each of their 6 ties (3 group-stage matches, quarterfinal, semifinal, final), laying the perfect spadework for the top-ranked Nadal to clinch victory.
Bautista Agut beat Aleksandre Metreveli of Georgia, Franco Roncadelli of Uruguay, Go Soeda of Japan, Kimmer Coppejans of Belgium, Nick Kyrgios of Australia, and Dusan Lajovic of Serbia - all in straight sets, with Lajovic (5) taking the most games in a set off the Spaniard in the competition.Published 13 Jan 2020, 20:03 IST
