Roberto Bautista and Nick Kyrgios opposed their styles of play, diametrically opposed, and that of the Castellón won by a landslideLike him, a great Villarreal fan (he wears the shield on the sleeve of his shirt) would like to say. The solidity, seriousness and patient forcefulness of Bautista prevailed over the anarchic game, excessively upright and less and less surprising and effective from australian, who left the singles box with a beating: 6-3, 6-4 and 6-0 in less than two hours, on the edge of 1:00 Eastern Time. The Spaniard, who played a game especially with his service (13 aces and 80% of points won with firsts), goes to the second round of the US Open for the seventh time, where he will see Finn Emil Rusuuvuori (22 years old and 66th in the world), whom he has never faced.
The truth is that Kyrgios is no longer scary. Neither him nor his quirks and out-of-tones. Bautista had to arm himself with patience in the face of the continuous chatter of the wayward Aussie, who had them with the chair umpire, Carlos Barnardes, on account of the towels. Nick refused to leave them in the corresponding boxes on the track backs and threw them continuously to the ground, accumulating several on the track, for which he took one of the referee’s notices. Kyrgios, who does not win for fines, played off-center and could do nothing in the face of Rober’s display of solidity and good play.
🤪 FROM CRAZY! 🤪

“He is very good and has a lot of talent, I like to face him,” said Bautista, elegantly, about his rival. “I am very happy for the victory and we all like to see the people on the slopes. I hope to win many games this week and continue to enjoy this, ”he added. So far he looks good.
