In the previous face-to-face, let’s remember, Rublev lost to Evans.
– Confidence in the match with Evans appeared after the first set. I realized that I can play even better, even faster, even more aggressively, – Eurosport quotes Rublev. – Since these thoughts could be implemented into actions, I felt very good. And Dan, on the other hand, was uncomfortable.
The Russian admitted that he was pleased with how he was doing at the Australian Open.
– With each game I add. I am very happy, because at the beginning of the season I lost two matches against great tennis players (at tournaments in Adelaide there were defeats in the first rounds of Roberto Bautista-Aguta and Tanasi Kokkinakis – “RG”), – said Andrey. And of course I lost confidence a bit. Now she’s back, so I’m very happy. Let’s see what happens next.
In the fourth round, Rublev’s opponent, who is ranked seventh in the ranking, will be the tenth racket in the world Dane Holger Rune.
