Ranked 37 in the world in singles, Bublik is pleased to click into gear with the Tokyo Olympics on the horizon.
“It would be my first and one to remember if we get there,” said the 23-year-old.
“If they take place, I’ll definitely be there. Hopefully, after these results, I can bring Andrey with me for the doubles.
“It’s going to be very different from others I hope to play. I’m definitely looking forward to it. It won’t be as nice as a normal Olympics, but that’s the reality and we have to deal with it.”
The duo, in just their fourth tournament playing as a pairing, were cautious to imagine the moment as Grand Slam champions.
Instead, Bublik was relishing remaining on the clay for a few more days.
“We’re still a bit far from lifting a Grand Slam. I was about to go to Stuttgart but turned around and now we’re accidentally in the finals,” joked Bublik. “It’s the way for me to miss Stuttgart, to miss singles on grass. “
Golubev, concentrating more on doubles these days, is determined to take in the moment and occasion on Saturday.
