World number 23 Bautista Agut will break into the top 20 for the first time when the new rankings are released on Monday.

“Since the start of the season, I believed a lot in myself and my work,” Bautista Agut told ATPWorldTour.com.

“I've been playing really well, won a lot of matches and it was only a question of time before this happened.”

His only recent blip was a third round loss at Wimbledon although in his defence, it was against 2013 champion Andy Murray.

“It's really difficult to win a tournament on grass and then go to Wimbledon and win a couple matches there and then with only a few practices on clay, come here and win the title. It's really amazing.” – Sapa-AFP
