Currently ranked 8th in the world Andrey Rublev is looking determined for a furious comeback in the US Open. The player spoke on a few topics before the start of the American tennis season. He said that he’ll push for as many satisfactory performances as he can before the start of the Grand Slam.
Prior to this, Rublev couldn’t participate in Wimbledon due to the ban on Russian players. But he is all set and prepared for the last Grand Slam of the calendar year.
Rublev also revealed that he’ll be looking to grab every single opportunity that exists. He added that his next target is Moscow where he would want to take home the title which is currently held by the Italian, Jannik Sinner.
Andrey Rublev talks about the objective and the competition that exists
The player performed decently on the clay but the adaptation to the hard court will be tough.
“I really like playing here, there is a great atmosphere. This is a great tennis club in general, with the typical American style. Many spectators come to the matches and stay until the end of the session. They put on a good show and we tennis players like it a lot. In terms of sports entertainment, the United States is the best.”
“Not just in tennis but in any other sport. I hope I can do a good job and start this tour in America with a win. It’s a tournament that counts on great players. I didn’t see the complete list of athletes at the starting line but remember that even at the bottom of the list there were top-level tennis players, including Nick Kyrgios and Andy Murray.”
“Will never want to play with either of them right away. I hope it’s mutual.”
Rublev is more than excited and his desire to perform after an absence from a Grand Slam Championship.
On the competition that the Slam provides, he said,
“There are times when things don’t work out as much as you train. In this type of tournament anything can happen, the result can be unpredictable. Sometimes you feel good, other times you have a horrible feeling and the ball doesn’t bounce as you would like. Tennis, in general, is like that.”
