Kazakhstan's No. 1 Alexander Bublik is the current tennis season's best aces performer

The distinctive qualities of Bublik's play style are strong serving and aggressive play on the baseline. In his junior years, Bublik was one of the world's TOP-20 Juniors. In 2014 - 2015 he played in the Grand Slam's QFs.

At the end of May 2021, the Association of Professional Tennis Players (ATP) released a video illustrating how quickly player on-court relationships can change. Kazakhstan's No. 1 Alexander Bublik and the Chilean Christian Garin were taken as examples. In September last year, Bublik caused Garin's resentment by performing a hidden hand serve, which the Chilean could not return. However, already in May of this year, Bublik and Garin played together in doubles at the ATP-1000 in Rome and every point won they cheered as friends.
