Alexander Bublik v Pedro Martinez Head to Head
No previous meetings have taken place between Bublik and Martinez before this encounter in Estoril.
Bublik 1-2 on Clay
The 23-year-old Bublik has had a decent season, including an appearance in the final of the Singapore Open, where he was beaten by the ever improving Australian Alexei Popyrin in three sets. The Kazakh also made it through to the quarterfinals of the Miami Masters, losing to the Italian Jannik Sinner in straight sets.
But, after switching over to clay, Bublik has simply struggled to get going. In fact, he is 1-2 on the surface, having won his only match on the red dirt in Barcelona. While, he made a second round exit in Spain after he was sent packing by Alex de Minaur of Australia. Earlier, Bublik had lost his Monte Carlo opener to Jeremy Chardy of France.
When a player steps onto the court against the Kazakh, he should be expecting almost anything because the fact of the matter is anything can happen. From tweeners to sensational volleys at the net to powerful forehands to booming serves, Bublik is known to entertain fans with his wide variety of shots.
However, clay is not his favourite surface and that’s why, he hasn’t been able to make a deep run in a tournament on the surface. Bublik, though would like to prove his opponents wrong with a determined show on the red dirt and would look to open his campaign in Estoril with a straight forward win.
Martinez Makes Main Draw in Estoril
Bublik’s challenger in Estoril is the Spanish qualifier Pedro Martinez, who made it through to the main draw of the tournament after winning his two qualifying matches on Saturday and Sunday.
Like every other Spaniard, Martinez have been born and brought up on the red dirt and likes to glide and slide on the surface. Additionally, Martinez loves to wear down his rivals with his defensive baseline game.
Martinez had also participated in the Monte Carlo Masters as a qualifier and did well by progressing through to the first round of the tournament. Unfortunately, he failed to win his opener against Tommy Paul of the United States as he was forced to pull out of the contest due to an injury.
Bublik v Martinez Prediction and Tip
Bublik is the heavy favourite to win this match with a straight-set victory quite likely. But, Martinez, who has nothing to lose could make it a contest by engaging the Kazakh in long baseline rallies.
Tip: Bublik to win: 10/11 (bet365)
