Andrey Rublev is known for his attacking game style and aggressive groundstrokes, with many winners coming from his forehand side.
The hard-hitting Russian possesses incredible racquet head speed through lag and snap through his wrist on his forehand
He favours flat-power over topspin and is known to hit many winners from that side. The current World No 8 on the ATP Tour is amongst a group of NextGen players who are expected to take over from the Big 3 – Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer – once they retire.
And Rublev took great strides in that direction. Despite a truncated 2020 season, the 23-year-old won 5 tour titles in the calendar year – more than any other ATP player that year.
He won back to back titles in Vienna and St. Petersburg as well as titles in Hamburg, Adelaide and Doha. It also helped him break into the top 10 for the first time, and debut at the year-end ATP Tour Finals.
