Wimbledon 2019: Roberto Bautista Agut abandons bachelor party plans after reaching semi-finals

Spanish tennis star Roberto Bautista Agut has been forced to change his pre-marital plans this week after reaching the semi-finals of Wimbledon on Thursday (NZ time).

The 2018 ASB Classic champion, who is getting married in November, had never got past round four so it seemed safe to plan his trip to the Balearic isle.

But instead of focusing on his next cocktail, he is eyeing the biggest match of his career against defending champion, Novak Djokovic.

The 31-year-old arrived in his first Wimbledon quarter-final as the only man yet to drop a set and although he lost that unblemished record against Argentina's Guido Pella he was well worth his 7-5 6-4 3-6 6-3 victory.

With twice champion Rafa Nadal beating Sam Querrey in the next match on Court One there are two Spaniards in the men's semis for the first time, and Sunday could be quite a fiesta.

Having beaten Djokovic twice this year, Bautista Agut, one of the steadiest players on Tour, will enter that battle in good heart, and with plenty of support.

"I had planned to be in Ibiza right now. We had everything organised already. My friends, six of them, are all there," the Castellon native, seeded 23, told reporters.

"Well, it feels better to be here in London. They are coming to London. I think they will fly on Friday."
