KITZBUHEL, Austria – Third-seeded Roberto Bautista Agut cruised past wild card Filip Misolic 6-2, 6-2 in the final of the Generali Open on Saturday to claim his 11th ATP title.
Bautista Agut lifted his second trophy this year after Doha in his 21st career final. It was only his second on clay after Stuttgart in 2014.
“It was a very long time since I won a title on clay,” the Spaniard said. “It’s very special for me, because I’ve done a lot of good work on this surface.”
Bautista Agut was dominant, breaking Misolic twice in each set.
“I enjoyed the final, I managed the pressure very well,” Bautista Agut said. “I knew I was a little bit the favorite today, but he had so many good wins this tournament. I played a very good match.”
Earlier Saturday, Misolic had to complete his semifinal against Germany’s Yannick Hanfmann that was suspended a day earlier due to rain. Misolic led Hanfmann 1-0 in their third-set tiebreaker.
The 20-year-old Austrian prevailed to advance to the final in his first ATP tournament.
