Bublik: "I don't like it, my son won't play tennis"

Alexander Bublik is undoubtedly a colorful and controversial character in the world of tennis. The Kazakh, number 41 in the world, told Clay between past and present: "I never had the chance not to be a tennis player."

25 years old, Alexander Bublik made headlines in Metz, when in the final against Lorenzo Sonego he decided to hit the ball with the handle of his racket. A “not very respectful” choice, which actually cost him a break.

As well as a fool. But the player, on Clay, described his new life as a father as a turning point: "Once you have children, it's time to move on, when they start screaming you forget the rest of your problems. In the end, tennis is my job and I know I have to do it wel."

All with some reservations about the world of the racket: "It's not a fun life, there are many trips. There are many people who dream of having clean drinking water, so it's not that I don't appreciate what I have, it's just that I don't like it, that's all.

I don't care at all right now, I only play for myself and my family. If people don't like it, that's fine, everything will be fine for me, nothing changes." A world that for Bublik was a constraint: "In my case, I never had the chance not to be a tennis player.

My father told me to play and my mother supported him, so I played. I was only two years old, but the question of whether or not I wanted to be a tennis player never came up. That's why I don't want my son to play tennis, we'll see what he's good at, at the moment I have no idea.

You have to give them the freedom to see what they can become." Roger Federer has retired, and then Alex also has to say about him in the debate of The Goat: "For me the best is Novak, I haven't spent much time with Roger and not even with Rafa.

With Novak, on the other hand, I was able to talk for a long time when the pandemic broke out, although I would not even say that he is a cool guy, you can't be cool with 35 years and two children. But he is a true gentleman, a proud tennis player and a proud father, an excellent person for the sport. Other guys with whom I get along very well are Gael Monfils and Grigor Dimitrov, two fantastic guys."
