Antalya Open 2021 Final Preview: Alex vs Alex

The lineup for the 2021 Antalya Open final is set, as Australia's Alex De Minaur will face off against Kazakhstan's Alexander Bublik in what should be an enticing encounter.

After defeating second-seeded David Goffin in the semifinals, De Minaur advanced to his eight ATP singles final. The 21-year old won three titles in 2019 (Sydney, Atlanta and Zhuhai) and is 3-4 in championship matches.

The Aussie will face Bublik for the first time on Wednesday, as the Kazakhstani defeated French veteran Jeremy Chardy in a tense three-set semifinal. Bublik will be competing in his third ATP singles final, having lost his previous two at Newport and Chengdu in 2019.

Both men have been in great form during the tournament, as Bublik upset top seed and World No.10 Matteo Berrettini in the quarterfinals to record the second biggest win of his career. Conversely, De Minaur has dropped only one set en route to the final, as he required three sets to overcome World No.16 David Goffin in their semifinal encounter.
