Bublik does not even try to change anything in his game, as he goes to court and focuses on his serve. When the first ball disappears, then it takes a risk from the second and can make more than 10 double mistakes during a duel. After a successful serve or lumbago, the Kazakh runs out to the net, where he acts reliably, but with difficulty processes balls that fly to his legs. Alexander tries to avoid jokes in every possible way, because he hardly holds the ball in court.
Bublik has repeatedly demonstrated that he can play well. True, much in his game depends on the proper mood. If he is not, then his game does not add up. The same can be said about its powerful pitch.
In the first round of the tournament in Rotterdam, Bublik met with the Frenchman Gregoire Barrere and defeated him in three games (6-3, 6-7, 6-4). For the match, Alexander completed 16 aces.
At the moment, Rublev impresses with his progress. Andrei added in all aspects of the game, especially made a breakthrough on the pitch, as earlier he made more double mistakes than shot aces, but now it’s the other way around. The Russian has a whack on the ball, so during the match he writes himself a large number of winners. At the moment, the tennis player is confidently moving to the top 10. Yes, and it should be noted that in the next few months he will have to defend a minimum of points, which should be used.
Rublev in the current season has already issued two titles – at the beginning of the year the Russian won in a row first the competition in Doha, and then in Adelaide. Andrey also performed well at Australian Open – he reached the 1/8 finals.
In the first round in Rotterdam, Rublev confidently dealt with the representative of Georgia, Nikoloz Basilashvili (6-2, 6-3).
