Andrey Rublev: “Everyone has weaknesses, mine is mental”

Andrey Rublev has spoken of his feelings on the court, including his weaknesses.

Andrey Rublev has spoken of his feelings on the court, including his weaknesses. How can we forget his emotional breakdown recently in the quarterfinals of the US Open against Tiafoe, testifying to the fact that Andrey is going through a tough time.

The exact motivation is probably only known to the Muscovite, who gave an open-hearted interview to the ATP in which he talks about his difficulties.
Rublev, who currently has the chance to reach the semi-finals of the Astana Open, told: “Everyone has their own weaknesses.

My weakness is the mental one, and little by little I’m trying to improve that.” The mental difficulties he is experiencing also lead Andrey Rublev to be particularly severe with himself at the slightest mistake.

However, this is an aspect on which the Russian feels he is improving, having become aware of the fact that all human beings make mistakes: “Most people make mistakes and that’s how it works. Athletes do them too, that’s how we are.

I have great tennis to reach the next level, but I avoided it myself. In New York I did better on the pitch as a person, I was better as a player, I was more professional. I was able to handle the moments of tension and difficulty, but it takes time.”

This is the explanation of Rublev, who identifies a turning point in the match won in comeback against Shapovalov in the third round of the US Open for 6-4 2-6 6-7 6-4 7-6: “First I would have exploded and for this would have lost the game.

However, even in times when it seemed impossible to keep calm, I managed to do it. It felt like a turning point and I managed to win that match. After that game I felt a little proud of myself, if I have to be honest. I’ve shown on the pitch that I’m a better person when it comes to handling these situations, but I don’t want to focus on that. It was still time to get back to reality and solve the problem.”
