Gregoire Barrere in the first round of the tournament in Rotterdam on February 11 will play with Alexander Bublik.
This season Barrere only pleasantly surprises, since he suddenly seriously added to the draws and stopped making a huge number of unforced errors in every match. But the Frenchman still needs to score points to strengthen his position in the top 100.

Bublik continues to be in the spotlight, but not with results, but with antics. More recently, Alexander on the court told the whole story of how he hates tennis. And such emotions are highly justified. If on Challengers it was possible to leave at the expense of supply and exits to the net, then in the ATP round this is not enough and you need to be able to do something on the back line, and so far everything is deplorable. The representative of Kazakhstan hardly holds the ball in court, so he tries to invest maximum in every shot, which ends with a huge number of unforced errors.
In the new season, almost nothing has changed in the game of Bublik. The representative of Kazakhstan, as usual, lacks stability. It is possible that Alexander has some psychological problems with his attitude to this or that duel. Last week, for example, at a tournament in Montpellier, Bublik made it clear to everyone how he loves tennis.
The 26-year-old Barrere had a great start to 2020. It is noticeable that the Frenchman did a great job in the offseason, because now he is fighting on equal terms with more eminent tennis players.
Barrere is rebuilding his game, if before he acted in an “over” attacking manner, now he is increasingly getting involved in protracted exchanges of blows. Gregoire moves along the court perfectly and has no weaknesses in his technique, as he is able to aggravate both forehand and backhand. In addition, the Frenchman learned how to easily keep the ball in court due to the cuts. At the moment, although the tennis player is in the top 100, it’s difficult, especially when you consider that soon you will need to protect points.
In Doha, he lost in three sets to Jeremy Chardy (3-6, 6-3, 3-6), in Adelaide he also lost to Sam Querrey (7-6, 2-6, 6-7) in three games, on Australian Open in Guido Pella lost to four sets (1-6, 4-6, 6-3, 3-6). And last week in Montpellier, he defeated João Souza (6-2, 7-6) and Grigor Dimitrov (6-7, 6-4, 7-5).
