Agut prevails


ROBERTO BAUTISTA AGUT eased into the second round of the ABN AMRO Tournament with a straight-sets win yesterday, but Ernests Gulbis was a casualty in Rotterdam.

Spain's Bautista Agut brushed aside German wild card Alexander Zverev 6-4 6-1. However, sixth-seed Gulbis had an off-day on court, with the Latvian going down 6-4 6-2 to 21-year-old Austrian Dominic Thiem.
