Alexander Bublik

There’s no doubt that Bublik’s potential is enormous. After all, he can boast of a crazy speed feed and despite his size he moves very good on the court. But the tennis player needs to learn how to keep the ball in the court, rather than trying to constantly kick the ball on the set. It’s because of the huge number of uncomplicated mistakes that Alexander continues to trample on the spot. In addition, Alexander is completely dependent on the pitch and if the first ball goes missing, he takes an unreasonable risk and it often ends in defeat.

With an appropriate mood and if it is possible to catch a successful wave, Alexander can achieve good results and now in Marseille it is possible to observe how therepresentative of Kazakhstan at least does not fool around. In both previous matches, bookmakers believed that Kazakh would have to leave the tournament, but neither Marton Fucovic nor even Benoit Paire were a barrier on Bublik’s way to the quarterfinals. Alexander served well and was active in draws, demonstrating that he is able to show quality game whenever he wants. It is clear that the Kazakh’s game is largely dependent on pitching, but in the halls the serving is exactly the most formidable weapon.

Denis Shapovalov

Finally, Denis managed to interrupt the black stripe of 4 defeats in a row, but so far it’s too early to draw conclusions that the optimal game conditions have been accumulated. At the start of the French tournament the Canadian had to hold a full-fledged 3-set match to defeat Marin Cilic, who, by the way, also does not show the best game now. In general, Denis had a good game on numbers, but with one remark. The Croatian vis-a-vis did not put up such resistance, which could have stalled the Canadian. The only thing that can be surely evaluated positively is a good shot, and the rest of the game components still need to be dealt with.

Shapovalov has the same problems as Bublik actually. Only the Canadian can do everything on the court, and thanks to his incredible one-handed backhand is able to conduct dizzying serves. Only Denis avoids prolonged exchanges of punches and does everything possible to quickly finish the game. Especially surprising is Denis’ terrible reception, as he always strives to take on the flight, especially the second ball. Only most of these attempts fail.

Bublik vs Shapovalov Predictions

Denis Shapovalov is much higher in the rating, he is also a much more high-class tennis player with a lot of techniques in the arsenal, but does it mean that the game will be predetermined. In theory, the Canadian could not notice the Kazakh’s redsistance on the court, but not here and not now. At least we have not yet seen any preconditions for Denis Shapovalov to start showing the best game, which could cause serious problems to Alexander Bagel at the reception. We should prepare ourselves for the game in which tennis players will confidently keep games on their pitches due to a good ball entry.

  • Our prediction: Shapovalov Will Win.
