Roberto Bautista Agut is a professional tennis player who was born on April 14, 1988 in Castellono de la Plana, Spain. Bautista is also known as “Bati,” and is the son of Joaquin, a former football player and Ester, a business woman. Bautista started playing tennis when he was just five years old after his mother signed him up for some weekend training. Growing up, he looked up to David Ferrer and Juan Carlos Ferrero.

Bautista turned pro in 2006, and is currently coached by Pepe Vendrell and Javier Piles. While playing in the Juniors, Bautista had a record of 41-13, and was able to rank at No. 47 in the world rankings.

As a senior, it took Bautista a while before he was able to reach his first professional final, which was in 2013. His career breakthrough, however, was in 2014 when he was able to win his first two titles, as well as rise through the ranks and reach No. 14.

The following year, however, he dropped out of the Top 20, but has steadily tried his best to reach the top once more. It would take him a year before he got back into the Top 20, and even graced his first Masters final.

So far, the Spaniard has a record of 223 victories and 136 losses. He has 8 career titles to his name, but does not have a Grand Slam title yet. He has, however, played in all four of the Grand Slam tournaments in singles.
