Russian tennis player Andrey Rublev commented on the victory over Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinals of the tournament in Monte Carlo.
“I don’t know what to say. I don’t know how Rafa is feeling: everyone says that he is the best player in history on clay, he faces terrible pressure. I don’t understand how he plays in such conditions. A true legend. to play when you are I. When you have nothing to lose But if you are Rafa and you have to win, it’s already very difficult.
The conditions here are unpleasant: cold and crooked court. True, it is convex in the center. It is not possible to constantly serve hard, the percentage of the first serve drops noticeably. You have to slow down in order not to make mistakes. This is normal? Maybe yes.
Tomorrow I will play with Ruud, he is very good now. We’ve known each other for a long time, Casper is cool. We always have dramatic matches, great tennis and stress until the end. It will be difficult because he is in great shape. He finished much earlier than me, so you need to recover and fight to the end, “Tennis TV quotes Rublev.
