Marin Cilic knocked out of Australian Open by Roberto Bautista Agut

Roberto Bautista Agut came through a third Australian Open five-setter today to knock out 2018 finalist and sixth seed Marin Cilic in the fourth round.

Agut would break in the opening game of the third set when the Croatian made another unforced forehand error before breaking again to win the set 6-2.

"It took me a lot of work, a lot of dedication, a lot of patience", Bautista Agut said after the match.

"I won really good matches".

Some MPs saw the wording as a significant shift in narrowing Labour's choices for what it will eventually support in the Commons. This will raise the chances for a second referendum but without committing the leadership at this stage to support it.

"Every match here is a marathon for me, so I want to rest well and stay focused for the next match". "I did a great job this pre-season and it's been a great month for me and for my tennis".

Bautista Agut's win in 3 hours, 58 minutes advanced the Spanish player to a quarter-final against either six-time champion Roger Federer or 20-year-old Stefanos Tsitsipas.

Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain defeated on Friday Russia's Karen Khachanov in the 3rd round of the 2019 Australian Open, which has $44.5 million in prize money up for grabs and runs between January 14 and 27.

On Sunday he ended Croat Cilic's hopes of a repeat match-up against Federer in the quarter-finals after losing to the Swiss master in five sets in last year's final.
