Andrey Rublev Facts
- Andrey’s greatest win at the junior tier of the sport came in 2014 when he claimed the singles title at the year’s French Open.
- Although primarily a singles player, indicated by 7 ATP singles title in 9 finals as of February 2021, he had won a doubles title in the early part of his senior career. This came at the 2015 Kremlin Cup and was his only doubles ATP title as of February 2021.
- He was just 17 years old when he had defeated veteran Finn player Jarkko Nieminen in the 1st round of the 2015 Geneva Open. This meant that he had repeated Rafael Nadal‘s 2004 feat of winning at least once in 5 ATP tournaments in one season as a teenager who is under 18 years old.
- When he had won the 2017 Croatia Open Umag, he had become just the 7th lucky loser (a player who loses in the qualifying matches of a tournament but who enters the main draw when another competitor withdraws because of illness or injury) to have won an ATP singles tournament. The last player to achieve the feat was Rajeev Ram at the 2009 Hall of Fame Tennis Championships. This was also Andrey’s first ATP singles final and first title.
- In August 2019, when he had defeated the great Roger Federer in straight sets in 62 minutes in the 3rd round of the Western & Southern Open, he had handed Roger his fastest defeat in nearly 16 years.
- By winning the Qatar Open and the Adelaide International in January 2020, he had become the first player to win 2 ATP tournaments in the first 2 weeks of the season since 2004.
