At the moment, Bublik performs at the level of the top 150 tennis player. After all, he goes to the court without any plan for the game, but only focuses on his cannon serve and attacking potential. It is for this reason that Alexander regularly makes about 15 double and a huge number of unforced errors. But the tennis player cannot offer anything else to his rivals. Bublik is too slow, does not know how to defend itself and without any preparation runs out to the net.
Bublik can not boast of stable results in the current season. In six matches played, the representative of Kazakhstan won only three victories. Bublik began the year 2019 at the tournament in Doha, where he took off in the second round of the competition, losing to Aljaz Bedene (3-6, 5-7). Then, also in the second round, he left the tournament in Adelaide.
In Australian Open Bublik was not able to overcome the starting round of the competition, losing in three games to Jordan Thompson (4-6, 3-6, 2-6).
At the current tournament in Montpellier, Alexander already managed to hold one match – in the first round he defeated the Swiss Henri Laaksonen (6-7, 6-1, 6-7).
David Goffin new season statistics show good results. In seven matches the Belgian suffered only two defeats.
If Goffin had a fighting character, he would have built an outstanding career. And so the Belgian with a creak is in the top 10 and if somewhere he is fighting for the title, then only in small ATP tournaments. David stands out for his ability to switch from defense to attack, since during the rally the tennis player is able to endure for a long time, and then, with the slightest mistake from the opponent, instantly seize the initiative. Goffin lacks a powerful serve, because of this, the Belgian has to fight for every point.
Goffin returned to the top 10, but he needs to strengthen his position at any price. After all, the Belgian is not able to protect points, and when he tries to do this, then everything ends in failure. All due to the fact that David is not able to act under pressure.
At the beginning of the season, Goffin took part in the ATP Cup, where, among other victories, he scored a victory over the eminent Spaniard Rafael Nadal (6-4, 7-6). On Australian Open, David managed to get to the third round, where in four games he lost to the Russian Andrei Rublev (6-2, 6-7, 4-6, 6-7).
Betting Tips Statistics
- This will be the first meeting of tennis players on the court.
- Goffin won four victories in the last five games, and Bublik won two.
It’s hard to talk about Bublik’s chances to win if they don’t.
Bublik is not so happy with the results, especially in games against more experienced tennis players. In the first round, the representative of Kazakhstan had certain difficulties in the game against Laaksonen, which occupies 112th place in the ATP World ranking. It is unlikely that Bublik will be able to oppose something to the 10th racket of the World to Goffin in the upcoming meeting.
Everything can change only if Goffen enters the court without any mood and walks with his head lost from the first games. But in most cases, the Belgian dominates such tournaments and takes advantage of the lack of serious competition.
- Our prediction – is Goffin’s victory
