Andrey Rublev Wimbledon 2021

Andrey Rublev bringing ‘confidence from Olympic gold’ to Toronto


Andrey Rublev believes that his Olympic triumph will help his form going into the North American hard court swing.

The Russian talent won mixed doubles gold alongside Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in Tokyo, and will be looking to continue the high of good results at the Canadian Masters.

“To be honest [winning gold] is an amazing feeling,” the Russian told in an interview.

“Especially when you start to understand and realise how big it is, it’s an amazing feeling and it’s a big honour, I’m really thankful.”

Rublev is making his third appearance at the Canadian Masters, but has not had success in the past, losing both of his previous two matches at the event.

But Olympic glory has bolstered the world number seven, and he explained as much further along in the interview.

“I want to think that I’m playing well. I want to think that after the Olympic Games I’m more confident.

“We’ll see, only time can show [that].”

The fourth seed will face Fabio Fognini in his first match for a place in the round of 16.
