Veteran star Murray has shown there’s still plenty left in the tank after running two five-set marathons to reach this stage. The 35-year-old’s latest heroic performance saw him come back from two sets down to win in his second round match against Thanasi Kokkinakis, an encounter that proved to be the longest match of Murray’s nearly two-decade career.
Murray now faces world No. 25 Bautista Agut, who also had to overcome a two-set deficit to reach this tie after beating qualifier Brandon Holt on Thursday. Bautista Agut, just a year younger than Murray, reached the semifinals of Wimbledon last year and finished runner-up to Soonwoo Kwon in Adelaide 2 last week leading up to this tournament.
The two players have faced each other six times before, with honors even at three wins apiece, the most recent encounter ending in a straight set victory for Bautista Agut at last October’s Swiss Indoors tournament.
