The world No. 14 from Spain captured two ATP World Tour titles this season in Auckland and Sofia and also reached his first Masters 1000 final, finishing runner-up to Andy Murray in Shanghai.
“I am very pleased, as this is a gift to me for all the efforts during the entire year. I played a pretty consistent season. Being in London will be a great season finale for me,” Bautista-Agut told. It will be the 28-year-old’s second appearance at the O2.
“I was also there in 2014. For sure it is going to be a positive week for me. I will some practice and will be prepared in the event of stepping into action.”
