Big names have been falling at an alarming rate this week, and another will bite the dust as No.20 seed Taylor Fritz, the US’ best remaining hope in Melbourne, faces veteran Spaniard Roberto Bautista-Agut, seeded at No.15. Both men are in excellent form, and today’s match is expected on Kia Arena at 3.30am GMT / 10.30pm ET. Here’s how to watch a Bautista-Agut vs Fritz live stream wherever you are – including ways to see the match absolutely FREE.
Bati’s 2022 season got off to a flier with victories over Casper Ruud and Hubert Hurkacz, and he’s been spoken about as a potential dark horse for the Norman Brookes Challenge Cup.
At 33, Bautista-Agut is running out of time to capture his maiden slam, and with so many top seeds already out of contention, going out in the third round would feel like a golden opportunity squandered.
Fritz has never made it past this stage of a slam, and his 1-5 record against Bautista-Agut makes for ugly reading. However, since his return to the court after knee surgery last year, the big-serving American has been nothing short of sensational.
Recent victories over Frances Tiafoe, Cameron Norrie, Felix Auger-Aliassime and Andrey Rublev have seen him charge up the rankings. Today’s winner could well go on to make a deep run, so watch all the drama unfold by following a Bautista-Agut vs Fritz live stream at the Australian Open 2022.
