Who is Andrey Rublev, the winner of the Monte Carlo Masters 1000?

The Russian tennis player Andrey Rublev won yesterday against Holger Rune. He wins his first Masters 1000 trophy after two failed attempts at the final in 2021. Focus on this young tennis talent.


In the final of the Monte Carlo Masters 1000, the 25-year-old triumphed after more than two and a half hours of play (5-7, 6-2, 7-5). Facing him, Holger Rune, a 19-year-old Danish tennis player, went through all the emotions before admitting defeat.


Faced with an unpredictable and nervous opponent, Andrey Rublev played, while being a spectator of his opponent’s repeated nervous breakdowns.


At the beginning, Holger Rune seemed to be on the right track, winning the first set (7-5), thanks to Andrey Rublev’s missed break points. But soon, the Dane got carried away by his emotions and the determination of his opponent, sometimes giving the impression of not controlling the ball.


Finally, Andrey Rublev, who had himself lost to Stefanos Tsitsipas in 2021, did not steal the final. He was able to get the better of his opponent progressively throughout the two and a half hour match, and is finally in the big leagues.


The hope of Russian tennis


At just 25 years old, Andrey Rublev is ranked 6th in the ATP rankings. He is just ahead of his Danish opponent.


This young Russian tennis hopeful was born in 1997 in Moscow. Son of a sporty mother and father, he touched his first racket at the age of three. His professional career began in 2014. At the junior level, he finished 2014 as world No. 1, after winning the French Open. At the Youth Olympic Games, he won the bronze medal in singles, and silver in boys doubles with his partner and compatriot, Karen Khachanov.


Initially very aggressive on the court, he was able to calm down and take into account the valuable advice of his coach, Fernando Vicente. He did a lot of physical work to improve his movements and his athletic abilities. It was imperative for him to understand and understand his power.


Since then, the victories have been pouring in. In July 2017, after losing in the final round of qualifying, he was drafted as a lucky loser (LL) during the Umag tournament, where he dominated Paolo Lorenzi in the final. He became the first LL to triumph in a main tour tournament since 2009. Following his victory, he entered the top 50.


During the US Open, the same year, he revealed himself to the public by achieving the feat of eliminating in the second round the 9th world player of the time, Grigor Dimitrov. He reached the quarterfinals and became the youngest player to reach this stage of the competition at the US Open since 2001.


2018 and 2019 will be marked by injuries. But after rest and effort, Andrey Rublev returns in style and takes his country to the Davis Cup semifinals.


In 2020, he won five titles and entered the top 8 in the world, having played against the greatest players in the world. The following year is very important and decisive for him. He won the ATP Cup, played in his first Olympic Games and won gold in mixed doubles. Between victories and some defeats, he finishes the season at the 5th world ranking.
