Hurkacz still can’t boast of stable results in the current season. Although in fairness, we note that in the previous two tournaments, the Pole was simply unlucky with a draw.
In the first round in Rotterdam, Hurkacz met with the sixth racket of the world Stefanos Tsitsipas (7-6, 3-6, 1-6), and in Marseille in the second round with Vasek Pospisil (3-6, 4-6), who recently time gained a decent move.
Hurkacz continues to progress and entered the third dozen of the world ranking. The Pole plays better on hard. In 2019, he got 25 wins and 17 losses.
Bublik without a break plays the second week in a row, which may affect its physical condition. Surely the tournaments in Rotterdam and Marseille took away a lot of energy from Alexander, and therefore there are fears that he will not approach the competitions in Dubai in optimal conditions.
At a tournament in Marseille, the representative of Kazakhstan managed to get to the semifinals, where he lost to Stefanos Tsitsipas in two games (5-7, 3-6).
This season he is trying to get out of the challenge level and so far has won 7 of 13 matches.
