Overview

Hyeon Chung was no match for Bautista Agut when the pair clashed in the second round of the Dubai Open. The teenager lost the opening set 6-0, before being eliminated after losing the second set and the match as the final score was 6-0, 6-1.

The 27-year-old Spaniard has registered two straight set victories so far in the first two matches. Bautista Agut will be looking to extend his run in the quarter-final tie in order to seal a berth in the last four of the tournament.

Vasek Pospisil was Baghdatis' second round opponent and the latter had no trouble in registering a victory on Wednesday. A 6-4, 6-2 straight set win helped the Cypriot tennis star to progress further in this year's Dubai Open.

Baghdatis is not the firm favourite to make it to the next round. It should be seen whether the 20-year-old can beat Bautista Agut to make it to the semi-final.
