Alexander Bublik vs Hubert Hurkacz – Match Predictions
Hubert Hurkacz to Win
With his impressive form in the 2023 season and a favourable head-to-head record against Bublik, all signs point to Hurkacz as the favourite to win their first-round clash at the Canadian Open. Hurkacz boasts an outstanding 25-16 record overall in 2023, reflecting his consistency and success on the ATP tour. Notably, he has already defeated Bublik twice this year, and should likely make it 3-0 in the calendar year given the Kazakh ace’s troubles on the tour.
2-1 to Hubert Hurkacz
While the Polish ace has the upper hand, getting past Bublik will not be an easy task. In what is expected to be a fiercely contested first-round clash at the Canadian Open, we expect Hurkacz to emerge victorious with a hard-fought 2-1 win over Bublik. The Polish talent has been in sensational form throughout the 2023 season, but his wins over his rival have not been easy. He had to dig deep and earn a second-set tiebreak win to defeat him in straight sets in Marseille and their meeting in United Cup was a three-setter. Bublik’s unpredictability may pose a challenge, but Hurkacz should ultimately prevail 2-1 in a thrilling encounter at the Canadian Open.
