Defending champion Roberto Bautista-Agut of Spain has withdrawn from the ATP Auckland Classic without playing a match, citing a stomach virus.

The top-seeded Roberto Bautista-Agut had a bye in the first round and was due to play 2015 champion Jiri Vesely in his second round match on Wednesday. But the 28-year-old Spaniard, ranked 13 and the winner of the recent Chennai Open, informed organizers he was unable to play.
