Bublik on PTPA: Nothing is completed
Alexander Bublik has been watching the ongoing political battles between the ATP and the PTPA, led by Novak Djokovic.
Bublik said no organization is perfect even though he is primarily on the side of the ATP because he says the PTPA has so far been more about words than deeds.

"I'm not with this PTPA or whatever it is called. In any case, no single organization is perfect," Bublik told the Miami media last week. "I mean, for me of course, I mean we could do better, but at the end of the day when ATP makes us available, I can't really say much because I'm not with Novak and not 100 percent with ATP .
"I'm just trying to make a living here and if I get into that, imagine this conversation because when this PTPA started I was in this group and had so many conversations. They try a lot of things, but nothing is done. You know that. "

The Miami Open quarter-finalist said he didn't see any concrete action from the PTPA yet, but would be pleased if the organization were able to make positive changes for the players.
"Basically it's just about talking at the moment. I really haven't seen anything happening," said Bublik. "I just see ATP increasing the prize money in one tournament. I see ATP reducing the prize money in the other tournament because they have their own things. I'm not there.
"But for me I don't put any further pressure on myself, other thoughts, thinking, walking, we're banning this tournament or not going there. No. I just want to play tennis. I enjoy my life. I enjoy what I do. Of course, if Novak lets me earn more, I'll say thank you. But I won't fight for it because if they want to fight, they fight. It's cool. "
