Hubert Hurkacz has been phenomenal at the Wimbledon Championships 2021 so far. In the first round, he thrashed the rising star, Lorenzo Musetti, in straight sets and then defeated Marcos Giron in the second round. Interestingly, he is yet to drop a set in the Grand Slam.

Similarly, Alexander Bublik too has been brilliant on the court at Wimbledon 2021. In the second round, he crushed former World No.3, Grigor Dimitrov, in straight sets. Surprisingly, he too hasn’t lost a single set at the major so far.

Hurkacz has been serving really well at the tournament which can cause trouble to Bublik. However, the Kazakh player has the ability to cover the court quickly and can stun the Polish player with his effective slices.

Keeping their forms in mind, nobody seems favorite right before the beginning of the match. However, Hurkacz slightly has the upper edge as he knows how to play well under pressure. Also, he has enjoyed more success on grass than Bublik.

It will be wrong to say that Bublik will be start the match as the underdog. He is surely on cloud nine after defeating Dimitrov and can turn the tables around if he manages to find some early momentum.

Fans know that the match can swing anyway and thus, will be an exciting contest to watch. Who will advance to the pre-quarters of Wimbledon 2021?

Final Prediction: Hubert Hurkacz to win in five sets
