Roberto Bautista Agut backs up Novak Djokovic win to claim Doha title

Roberto Bautista Agut: beat Novak Djokovic in Doha semi-final

Roberto Bautista Agut backed up his fine semi-final win over Novak Djokovic to claim the title at the Qatar Open in Doha.

The Spaniard has enjoyed a dream week, beating three-time Grand Slam winner Stan Wawrinka and then Djokovic en-route to setting up a final clash with Tomas Berdych.

And, true to form, former world number four Berdych became Bautista Agut’s latest scalp.

Bautista Agut was generally on top throughout, although did have to survive a second-set wobble before closing out a 6-4 3-6 6-3 win.

“It’s been a fantastic week for me. Today it was not easy to manage all the emotions I had on court”, said Bautista Agut.

It also represented a decent comeback for Berdych, who had been sidelined since June with a back injury.

“Roberto was too good,” he admitted. “so well done for the title today, but I am happy with the week.”
