first one resulting in a loss in Chennai, India, last season.
"I was trying to not think too much and play my game point by point," said
Bautista Agut. "It was the same nervousness as every match. I played calm and
aggressive in the last game. I had to celebrate hard (after match point) and
enjoy the moment."

Saturday's match was the first meeting between Bautista Agut and Becker.
Bautista Agut took home $100,000 with the victory.
