This season, Bublik is trying to compete in viscous draws. But only something begins to fail at him, as he immediately explodes and begins to try to win everything in one blow. In most cases, all this leads to failure, but there are exceptions.
Recently, Alexander became famous all over the world (of course, not by his game), as he began to openly say that he hates tennis and this is “the most moronic game in the world.” Most likely, the Kazakh had seen enough of Nick Kyrgios and also a friend wanted to become a bad guy. At the moment, the tennis player was in the top 50, but so far this is his limit.
Bublik recently admitted that he plays tennis just for the money. Perhaps this is so, but it is worth noting that lately, Alexander has been demonstrating excellent tennis. For example, last week, the representative of Kazakhstan managed to reach the semifinals at the tournament in Marseille.
By the way, in the match for reaching the final, Bublik met exactly with his future rival Stefanos Tsitsipas and lost to him in two games (5-7, 3-6).
When Tsitsipas is in optimal shape and confident in his own abilities, he can give battle to any opponent. Stefanos has a “killer instinct” because he can play poorly, play a lot of breakpoints, but only the opponent will give a slack, as soon as the Greek suddenly comes to his senses and begins to act at the highest level.
A tennis player is strong in all game aspects because he is successful in all types of coatings, confidently delivers and acts near the net, and is also diverse in the draws. There is no doubt that in the coming years Tsitsipas will claim leadership on the tour.
Tsitsipas last week won the competition in Marseille. In the tournament finals, he defeated the Canadian Felix Auger Aliassime (6-3, 6-4). It is noteworthy that during the competition, the Greek never lost a single set.
In Dubai, in the first round, Stefanos met with Pablo Carreno Busta and defeated him in two games (7-6, 6-1).
