Alexander Bublik's latest trick delighted the crowd at the ATP 250 tournament in Adelaide, but perhaps less so one of the spectators. When the Kazakh is on the court, fun is always guaranteed. Bublik - who is currently playing in the semi-final against Jack Draper - gave a great show during the quarter-final against Lorenzo Musetti, beating the Italian after more than two and a half hours of battle.

In the third of the match against Musetti, Bublik tried to chase and recover the ball and, failing to do so, ended up in the stands in the front row, among the crowd. The player immediately noticed the presence of a packet of crisps in the hand of a fan and, without hesitation, he stole and ate a crisp, before returning to the court.

The whole crowd present laughed at yet another trick by the Kazakh tennis player (perhaps less so the owner of the packet of crisps!), especially since it occurred in the middle of the match at a rather important moment. Below, you can see the video released by Tennis TV on X:

Bublik is facing Draper right now

The Kazakh qualified for the semi-finals, but risked elimination from the tournament, against Musetti. After the first set won 6-3, the Kazakh suffered a comeback from the Italian, who came back and completely reopened the match, winning the tie-break of the second set.

In the third set, Musetti took a break lead and, at 5-4, had the chance to serve to reach the semifinals. From that moment the Italian was lost. The world number 25 recovered the deficit and took advantage of his opponent's many errors in the decisive phase of the match to achieve victory. Bublik, as mentioned, is currently facing the British Jack Draper: a place in the ATP 250 final in Adelaide is up for grabs.

Returning to the match against Musetti, Bublik amazed the crowd with a sensational point. The Kazakh first decided to serve from underneath, a shot that we have also seen Nick Kyrgios do in the past, and then made a tweener on Musetti's backhand return. The crowd gave him an ovation.
