It will rain aces in Bourg-de-Péage during the next Open Markal.
Back from December 9 to 11, the exhibition tennis tournament has unveiled its first seed. It is the Kazakh Alexander Bublik, 25 years old who will be present. Currently 44th player in the world in the ATP ranking (ex-number 30), he comes out of a rather successful year with a victory over the ATP 250 in Montpellier and some benchmark successes over Gaël Monfils, Casper Ruud, Matteo Berrettini or even Alexander Zverev.
An atypical player on the circuit, Alexander Bublik is a formidable and feared server. Over the year 2021, he is quite simply the player who has made the most aces with 840 warheads. He is ahead of Alexander Zverez (749).
The organization specified that the Kazakh would be seeded number 3 or 4, so he will start in the quarter-finals on Friday.
