"It's been a while" jokes Bautista Agut after winning Doha trophy

Roberto Bautista Agut ended his dominant week in style on Saturday, downing Nikoloz Basilashvili 6-3, 6-4 in the Qatar ExxonMobil Open final to win his first ATP Tour title since 2019.

The Spaniard got revenge for last year's loss in the final against Basilashvili and after the match, he was extremely happy. He said:

“I am very happy. It has been a while since I lifted a trophy. I have been working very hard to reach another final and to get the chance to win another title. It was a big dream for me to win a title and I have now won twice in Doha. It is very special for me and I am very happy.”

It was a tough final for the Spaniard. He had to fight hard against Basilashvili who was up a break in both sets. In the end, persistency paid off:

“It was a really tough final. This year we played without wind, which was much better for me. It was not easy to recover after a really tough battle yesterday, but I think I did a good job today. It is my 10th ATP Tour title and I am very happy.”
