The words of Andrey Rublev

After a five-set victory over Alex De Minaur, Andrey Rublev will face Jannik Sinner in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open. "Jannik Sinner had a surreal season last year and is off to a good start now. He beat me the last time we faced each other (in the semifinals of the ATP 500 tournament in Vienna,ed.), I don’t know what to say. I think I am in trouble,” he admitted at the end of his meeting with De Minaur. I will try to do my best and we will see what happens.".

The Russian tennis player wants to dispel the tabù concerning the quarterfinals in a Slam where he lost 9 times out of 9: "I hope I can put him in a difficult position. Curious expressions during the match? I don’t know what goes through my head. Sometimes it looks like a horror movie. I go through so many ups and downs in my mind".

"I will faceò the next game with a smile. When one è happy to live his passion playing another game represents a new opportunityà. Andrey è improved a lot, he fights on every ball and if I want to win I have to show good tennis" had said Sinner about the match against the Muscovite, scheduled for Tuesday at 11 a.m. Italian time on Rod Laver Arena.
