Beware, Alexander Bublik is in the house. The strong, cold-blooded Kazakh isn’t here to mess around. His goal: disrupt the UTS peace. The 6’5’’ player is feared for his powerful serve, solid baseline game, and, mostly, for his unconventional brilliance and surprising shot making. It’s official: he’s tennis’ underarm serve master, and that is far from being the only trick shot in his repertoire. Tweeners, drop shots, power shots: they’re all Bublik’s go-to crime weapons. The 23-year-old has already made his fair share of damages: he started the 2021 season by reaching a career-high of World No. 43. The “Bublik Enemy” played a total of 4 ATP finals, the most recent being the 2021 Singapore Tennis Open. Amongst his victims are Top 10 players and fellow UTS competitors Matteo Berrettini and Gael Monfils. Who is next on the list?Watch live
