In the previous rounds, Tsitsipas, ranked No 6, beat Belarusian Ilya Ivashka (6-4, 6-4), American Marcos Giron (7-6 (5), 4-6, 6-3) and Frenchman Benjamin Bonzi (6-4, 6-4).

Bautista Agut, ranked No 20, defeated Japanese qualifier Taro Daniel (6-4, 7-6 (4)), Australian Nick Kyrgios (W/O), Russian Daniil Medvedev, the top seed (6-3, 6-2) and Swiss qualifier Antoine Bellier (7-6 (5), 6-2) earlier in the tournament.
