The head-to-head between the pair is tied 1-1 Pospisil won his first meeting in Miami in 2018, before Rublev beat a Davis Cup rubber last year
Andrey Rublev was one of the few players to retain his early-season form. Just after winning a third ATP title of the year at the Hamburg Open, signs of jet lag and acclimatization to the special conditions of Roland Garros were evident as he fought two sets to avoid an upset first round at the hands of Sam Querrey
The Russian made it to the quarter-finals – his very first in Paris – before Tsitsipas took revenge for his Hamburg clash.But remarkably, Rublev’s coach Fernando Vicente was as sincere as he gets The Spanish coach was not impressed with his pupil’s performance in Paris despite a breakthrough in the Grand Slam
As Vincente puts it, only Querrey’s most calamitous meltdowns prevented Rublev from extending his winless streak at Roland Garros and he questioned his professionalism and inability to calm his nerves in yet another win at the reverse against Marton Fucsovics
Nevertheless, it’s worth pointing out that Rublev is only 22 years old and has certainly improved in other aspects of his game over the past 18 months. He is currently 29-7 for the season and is on track to qualify for the Nitto ATP Final for the first time.
One thing Vincente will know, anyone who stops Rublev will probably have to do it the hard way
Vasek Pospisil is never comfortable playing on clay, compiling a 1-19 surface touring record throughout his career It was perhaps no surprise to see him fall in his only match on the mud in the first round of Roland-Garros
Pospisil was beaten by Matteo Berrettini and quickly left the ‘bubble’ after his doubles run ended in the second round The Canadiens criticized tournament organizers, calling the experience worse than Flushing Meadows’ He admitted how completely absent he was mentally, once he realized that outdoor activities and off-court distractions were limited.
After playing some of the best tennis of his career this year in which he made the final in Montpellier and the quarter-finals in Marseille, Pospisil made a decent outing at the US Open where he made the Last 16 This race came about staying in a comfortable environment, which he missed in Paris
But now that his nightmare at Roland Garros is over, could he return to victory on the indoor courts in St Petersburg?
It’s a very difficult opening round for Rublev He arrives in this match in excellent form, but Pospisil is thriving in these indoor conditions An upheaval could be on the cards, but this match will be on the borderline
