Wiimbledon 2019: Roberto Bautista Agut shares how he can beat Novak Djokovic

"I don't think so.'" - Serena Williams on whether playing mixed doubles with Andy Murray helped her perform better at the net against Barbora Strycova.

Agut is excited to face the defending champion, especially after the run that he has had in the tournament so far. It means a lot for me and probably for him, too.

Nadal has never had a better grasscourt game than this year's strategy.

"He's been definitely playing some very, very high-quality tennis in this tournament".

Actually, there have been 64 matches already that have featured at least one tie break, which will be down on last year's 77, but it's about the same as the 67 of 2017 and more than the 60 of 2016. So you can dive into the tactics like mad, or you say "it's grass-court tennis so I'm going to come out and play my tennis".

"The opportunities to play against each other are becoming less, but we still here". Federer has rolled through Wimbledon 2019, winning all five of his matches in four sets or fewer.

"What has impressed me most about Roger's game is his mobility, he is still able to get to every ball on the court". However, the match will only start after the end of the semifinal match between Novak Djokovic and Robert Bautista Agut. He's dropped just one set - to Nick Kyrgios in the second round - and has a clear advantage in the head-to-head record with Federer, holding a 24-15 advantage.

On Friday, Federer gets his shot at Nadal on grass and hopes to prolong his pursuit of a ninth championship at tennis' most prestigious tournament.

Agut has had a good Wimbledon looking in prime form and defeated "Next Gen" star Karen Khachanov in straight sets in the third round.

Only five of their last 22 clashes has gone to a final set and very often the victor of these encounters has won it with a bit to spare, so if I were backing either man in match odds on Friday I'd be inclined to risk the -1.5 sets.

The Wimbledon semifinal between Novak Djokovic and Roberto Bautista Agut was briefly interrupted after a fan became ill on Centre Court. Bautisa Agut, a 31-year-old ardent baseliner, topped Djokovic in Doha, Qatar in early January and again in Miami in March after Djokovic won the Australian Open.

Their last match on Centre Court was an absolutely classic.

And that's on hard courts, where Djokovic is at his best and in his last 50 matches at main level on outdoor hard he's held 87% of the time and won 74% of his first serve points, so RBA has done well against the Serb lately.
