Novak Djokovic vs Roberto Bautista-Agut Preview, Predictions, Betting Tips & Live Stream
Novak Djokovic is the clear favourite as he takes on the Roberto Bautista-Agut in the first ATP 2019 Wimbledon semi final. I am predicting a tight encounter in which Djokovic will advance but Bautista-Agut should have enough to ensure it’s not a straight sets victory.
Novak Djokovic – ATP Wimbledon Form
World Ranking: 1
Career Titles: 74
Titles in 2019: 1
Wimbledon Best Result: Winner (2011, 2014, 2015 & 2018)
Novak Djokovic has been dominant throughout the early rounds on route the Wimbledon semi finals. He has dropped one set along the way, in the third round against Hubert Hurkacz but came out with a comfortable 7-5, 6-7, 6-1, 6-4 win.
In the quarter final Novak Djokovic hardly broke a sweat with a 6-4, 6-0, 6-2 victory over David Goffin. This time Djokovic is likely to have a good test against the in-form Robert Bautista-Agut, who has beaten him twice on hard court this year already.
Djokovic has proven his class on surfaces but it is hard to argue that grass is his favourite, and he’ll be desperate claim his fifth Wimbledon title. There is no value in the Serb for an outright win at 1.083 so I am looking elsewhere for value.
My best bet for this match is for Novak Djokovic to win but for Robert Bautista-Agut to take at least a set off the world No. 1 at 2.75.

Wimbledon Best Result: Semi Final (2019)
It has been a truly exceptional Wimbledon for Roberto Bautista-Agut, reaching the semi final for the first time. In his quarter final Bautista-Agut saw off Guido Pella 7-5, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3, dropping his first set of the tournament in the process.
The Spaniard has been dominant in all five matches and now comes up against world No.1 and defending Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic. Despite the odds stacked heavily against him at 8.00 Roberto Bautista-Agut will have full confidence in his grass court form.
These two have met on two occasions in 2019 with Roberto Bautista-Agut winning in three sets (2-1) each time. The matches were both played on hard court with Djokovic far from his best, but Bautista-Agut will feel that victory is not beyond the realms of possibility here.
