Paire has already turned 30, but he’s still capable of progress. And not in his game plan, but in working on himself. After all, the Frenchman has the greatest experience of performance at the highest level, but he is still unable to control his emotions and because of this almost every match breaks rackets. When Benoit experiences a surge of emotions (discontent, constant quarrels with everyone), then he is no longer able to act at his level. That’s why the Frenchman can’t fully implement himself in tennis.
Benoit Paire got off to a very good start in the season and pleased the stands in various cities throughout January, but in February everything changed a lot. First the French failed the start of the tournament in Puna, losing to Roberto Marcora, who usually roams in the Challengers, and then the story repeated in Rotterdam, however, the rivals already had a much stronger vis-a-vis in the face of the Aljaz Bedene. Of course, the results are not the best, but returning to his homeland Benoit Paire seems to have played the usual tennis and in 2 sets dealt with his compatriot Gregoire Barrere.
There’s no doubt Alexander got high hopes. But the problem is that the Kazakh is extremely straightforward and can do nothing else but put all the power into every blow and run to the net. The tennis player is completely dependent on the pitch and if he doesn’t pass the first ball, he sends the second one with the same speed, which leads to more double mistakes. Alexander is only 22 years old, and he already lets himself be told on the court how much he hates tennis every day. With this attitude, Bublik can only dream of a successful career.
Alexander Bublik, with the right mood, is able to give a good game, especially if it flies like a proper pitch, but it is rarely possible to see the game in a full force. Often Kazakh of Russian origin often runs out of control and begins to swear at the matches in his full voice and scream what surely doesn’t add to his play. Anyway, but in Montpellier, Rotterdam and now in Marseille it was possible to start with victories, and this week Alexander Bublik was stronger than Marton Fucsovics, with whom he was originally considered an outsider.

Paire vs Bublik Predictions
The fate of the upcoming match largely depends on Benoit Paire’s self esteem in this tournament. And he is sure to have the high one, because he still plays at home. Of course, Alexander Bublik may surprise, but in recent weeks there has been absolutely no reason to expect from the Russian Kazakh to play better, so the French can and will be able to pass to the next round of play-offs, so we won’t invent anything and bet on the success of the favorite.
