Bublik Wins All-Kazakh Clash

Bublik did not have much form on grass prior to this year – his three previous visits had resulted in two first round defeats and the failure to get out of the qualifying competition in 2018.

Nor did he start the year on the surface particularly well last week. Although he did battle past Jeremy Chardy in the first round there, until he was shocked by the British teenager, Jack Draper, beaten by the world 250 in straight sets.

In the first round of Eastbourne, he faced a familiar foe in the shape of compatriot Mikhail Kukushkin, and it was a match that Bublik dominated form the start, quickly going two service breaks up and racing through the first set in just 23 minutes.

Kukushkin made more of a match of it in the second set and although he then dropped his serve, he was able to break back straight away. However, he was not level for long as he dropped his serve once more and Bublik was able to claim the win without having to work too hard.

Gerasimov, Defeats Challenge of French Veteran

Gerasimov’s Wimbledon record is even worse than Bublik. He has never qualified, despite trying to do so on four previous occasions.

His only previous match on grass resulted in a first round defeat in qualification in Halle, so he would not necessarily have been feeling confident when he took on the French veteran Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, now ranked 63 in the world, on Tuesday afternoon.

However, with the first set going with serve it was a match of fine margins, There was only one break point created and it was Gerasimov who converted it.

The rallies and the points became longer in the second set, but again it was Gerasimov who was the first to break, Tsonga had a break back opportunity and the Belarussian two more break point chances but none of these were taken, so in the end, Gerasimov just served out for the match.
