Shock win over Nadal leaves Rublev with little time to rest

Andrey Rublev

Andrey Rublev said he had accepted a wild card for Barcelona this week in the belief that his participation in the Monte Carlo Masters would come to a halt against Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinals on Friday.

But the exhausted Russian has now been left with a very quick turnaround after he beat the Spaniard and then went on to reach Sunday’s final of the ATP Masters 1000 event, where he lost to Stefanos Tsitsipas.

“I was thinking in my head that Friday probably I will be in Barcelona.”
