What happened to Rublev at the French Open?
Following a disappointing second-round exit at the Italian Open, Rublev entered the French Open as the seventh seed. In the first round, he fought back from a set down to beat Kwon Soon-woo. He then defeated Federico Delbonis in four sets before beating Cristian Garin to reach the fourth round of the French Open.
What happened in Rublev’s match against Garin?
Rublev had to battle hard against Cristian Garin in the third round, beating the Chilean 6-4, 3-6, 6-2, 7-6 (11). The Russian went up against 11th seed Jannik Sinner in the fourth round and the Italian won the opening set 6-1.
What can we expect from Cilic against Rublev?
Cilic will also rely heavily on his serve. He won a whopping 90% of first serve points against Medvedev and didn’t double fault even once. He will have to be similarly potent against Rublev. While the Russian is the higher-ranked player, Cilic will be in good spirits, having beaten him earlier this year.
Who won the match between Rublev and Sinner?
Rublev won the match but only after Sinner was forced to retire due to injury. The Italian won his next two matches against the Russian, the most recent of which came in the last 16 of the Monte-Carlo Masters. Rublev won the opening set 7-5 but Sinner bounced back to win the next two sets and advance to the quarterfinals.
