He has consistently struggled to defeat opponents ranked higher than him in crucial matches, making it difficult for him to advance in the ATP Finals. Although he has made it to the quarterfinals in every major tournament, he has yet to achieve a higher ranking.
This past year has been successful for him, as he achieved his first Masters title and reached the Wimbledon quarterfinals. This shows that he is on the right path, but he still needs to bring everything together.
However, facing off against Daniil Medvedev makes this task more challenging. While Rublev’s forehand may be the strongest shot for both players, Medvedev’s ability to consistently return balls and his powerful serve make him a formidable opponent even on a bad day. Therefore, I am unsure of how this match will unfold.
The game will start at 9pm in the local time zone and 8pm in GMT.
