Read & Watch: Bublik Surprises With Underarm Serve In Chengdu
It wasn't the first time Alexander Bublik deployed his underarm serve, but it was definitely one of the funniest times.
The Kazakh, facing Taylor Fritz at the Chengdu Open on Wednesday, was serving 4-6, 7-5, 2-2, 40/0 when he tried to catch the American off guard with the quick underarm motion.
Fritz, however, was not fooled, and rushed forward, hitting an aggressive backhand at Bublik. An entertaining rally ensued, and, during the changeover, both players were left laughing at the exchange.
Most recently, Bublik hit an underarm serve match point down against John Isner in July in the Hall of Fame Open final.
