Russian tennis player Andrey Rublev shared his impressions after winning the tournament in St. Petersburg.
“I am very happy to be at home. For me it is the best tournament in organization, there is no doubt about it. Thank you for your work to Alexander Medvedev. Thank you to everyone who came and supported us in such a difficult time. It means a lot when we are supported. Thank you to the fans. I had a great pleasure playing this week. See you next year, I hope.
What helped you to survive the tie-break? Some luck, the ball hit the net, then out, then again in a small out and so on. As a result, I was able to intercept the initiative, to win a tie-break. But it’s a sport, it happens, so today was my day.
I would say that Borna always fights to the end, it doesn’t matter if she loses or wins. He always tries to give himself up completely, he is a good player, he has beaten all the tops – and Nadal, and Federer, and Murray. He is an unrealistically good man.
Will I always make myself such gifts in the form of trophies for my birthday? Well, my birthday is in two days, I didn’t even think about it, but it’s nice,” “Match TV” quotes Rublev.
