Alexander Stanislavovich "Sasha" Bublik ( ? ; born 17 June 1997) is a Russian-born Kazakhstani professional tennis player. He has been ranked as high as world No. 30 in singles by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP), which he achieved in February 2022, and is the current Kazakhstani No. 1 player.[2] Bublik also has a career-high doubles ranking of world No. 47, attained on 8 November 2021.

In November 2016, Bublik announced he would change his citizenship from that of his home country of Russia to Kazakhstan after receiving support from the Kazakhstan Tennis Federation that the Russian Tennis Federation allegedly did not provide him. Since turning professional, Bublik has won one ATP Tour singles title and been a runner-up in four additional finals, and he achieved his greatest success at a Grand Slam at the 2021 French Open as the runner-up in his first career doubles final with partner Andrey Golubev. At 1.96 m (6 ft 5 in), Bublik is known for his powerful serve and led the 2021 ATP Tour in the number of aces served in the season. His occasional use of unpredictable trick shots and the underarm serve has also led him to develop a reputation on tour as a player with a capricious game style.

Career

Alexander Stanislavovich Bublik was born on 17 June 1997 in Gatchina, Russia and began playing tennis at the age of four. He was coached by his father, Stanislav. On the junior tour, Bublik reached a career-high ranking of No. 19 and won eleven titles (six singles and five doubles) on the International Tennis Federation (ITF) junior circuit.[3][4]

In 2016, Bublik joined several other players by switching to playing for Kazakhstan, explaining:

As hurtful as it may sound, nobody cared about me in Russia. And now people care about me. And they do everything for my career to be successful. That's the most important thing! Kazakhstan Tennis Federation -- they really look after me. They help, work, create the conditions for me to play well. It was impossible in Russia. There is also a wonderful tennis center in Astana. I don't know how to describe it in words. But it's awesome. Since we have already made a decision to play for Kazakhstan, I am never going back to the Russian team [like Ksenia Pervak[5]]. I am not going back.[6]

National representation

Davis Cup

Bublik has participated three times in the Kazakhstan Davis Cup team since 2019 and as of 2022, he has a win-loss record of 9-4 in singles and 3-2 in doubles in Davis Cup competition.[64] In 2021, he elaborated on his motivation when playing at the Davis Cup by explaining, "I take Davis Cup more seriously than [the] singles Tour because I'm not only playing for myself, but I play for the country, for the fans, and it's extra." Despite his more sporadic record on the ATP Tour, Bublik reiterated that, "In Davis Cup, I don't have 30 weeks to have good behaviour, bad behaviour, good match or bad match. I think I just go on court and try to be the best now, do what I can do now at the special moment."[65]

He made his Davis Cup debut at the 2019 qualifying round in his singles match against Portugals João Sousa, where he won in three sets to help Kazakhstan advance to the 2019 Finals.[66] At the Finals, Bublik narrowly lost to Robin Haase of the Netherlands in three sets, but he teamed up with Mikhail Kukushkin to win the deciding doubles match against Haase and Jean-Julien Rojer and seal their first tie win.[67] In Kazakhstan's tie against Great Britain, Bublik played his second singles match, where he defeated Dan Evans, but he lost his doubles match with Kukushkin to Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski. With the loss against Great Britain, Kazakhstan lost in the group stage and thus, ended their campaign.[68]

Bublik played the following year's qualifying round, where they faced off against Netherlands once more. He won his first singles match against Tallon Griekspoor and his second against Haase, both in straight sets, and brought his team through to the 2021 Finals.[69][70] At the Finals, Bublik took on Swedens Mikael Ymer and won in three sets to help his team win the tie.[71] He maintained his momentum against Canadas Vasek Pospisil in their next tie to win in straight sets to bring Kazakhstan to its sixth quarterfinal at the Davis Cup.[72][65] There, Bublik succumbed to Serbias Novak Djokovic in straight sets and the team ultimately lost its tie to end their campaign.[73]

In 2022, Representing Kazakhstan at the Davis Cup tie versus Norway, he won both of his matches beating Viktor Durasovic and Casper Ruud. In the end, Kazakhstan won the tie over Norway 3-1.[74] After the US Open, Bublik represented Kazakhstan in the Davis Cup Group stage.

Olympics

At the 2020 Summer Olympics, Bublik made his tennis Olympics debut, where he played Russia's Daniil Medvedev in the first round and lost in straight sets.[80]

Playing style

At 1.96 m (6 ft 5 in), Bublik possesses a powerful serve and led the 2021 ATP Tour in the number of aces served throughout the season.[81][82] His unpredictable game style on court has often caught opponents off-guard through his occasional use of the underarm serve and tendency to add trick shots in his matches.[83] His style has drawn comparisons to that of Nick Kyrgios, who also developed a reputation for often playing in an unorthodox manner.[81]

Bublik is also known for his irreverence to the sport and casual approach to practicing. Bublik described his unprecedented run to the 2021 French Open doubles final as a "pure accident", and explained that he did not treat doubles as professional tennis, but as a way to "make some extra money, hang around, make some jokes."[81] In a 2020 interview with L'Équipe, Bublik also stated that he lamented the sport and that the financial incentives were what kept him going: "If there was no money, I would stop playing tennis instantly. I haven't earned enough money, in any other case I would have already retired".[84][85] However, in 2022, he contradicted these statements, saying for Good Morning Tennis that "over time, and it's been three years since that interview, things have changed a lot and [he] love playing tennis now because [he] realized that's what [he] wanted to do as a kid".[86]
