Kazakh tennis player Alexander Bublik is one of the most special athletes on the ATP Tour. In recent weeks he has caused a lot of noise by his decision to suddenly leave the field, in Monte Carlo, during the match against Pablo Carreño Busta.
Alexander had explained that he hated clay and was really tired of it. Speaking to the German edition of Eurosport, Bublik clarified his words and explained that he, despite himself, will participate in the tournaments in Madrid, Rome and Roland Garros in Paris.
He said: “Yes, I confirm the comments of the last few weeks. I don’t like clay but I will be present in Madrid, Rome and Paris” The tennis player explained the reasons for this choice and continued: “I play to earn money in the end I play tennis so.
Also, events like Madrid and Rome are mandatory, so as a professional tennis player I have no choice and I have to participate.” Bublik’s statements caused a stir and once again they intend to shake the circuit.
Bublik and the absence of the Russians at Wimbledon
Alexander Bublik is a naturalized Kazakh Russian tennis player and he also spoke about a story that has affected many pundits in recent days, namely the decision not to allow athletes with Russian and Belarusian nationality to participate in Wimbledon.
On this, the tennis player replied honestly: “I don’t judge if it’s good or bad, but I think the organizers had the right to do that.” Alexander then clarified: “I have always seen sport as a distraction from everyday life and I believe that sport and politics should be separated.
In a sport, the fan has the opportunity to see a beer in his hand while sitting on his couch and cheering on his favorite athlete. It’s a shame that at Wimbledon now this is limited.”
This season, Bublik won the ATP tournament in Marseille, where he beat German Alexander Zverev in the final. We will see if these words will have consequences for the next tournaments of the Kazakh tennis player.
