After a weak second half of the 2021 season Andrei Rublev has finally found his lost form and is currently playing his best tennis. After dropping out of the third round at the Australian Open, Rublev reached the semifinals in Rotterdam. He then went on to win back-to-back titles in Marseille and Dubai and was also amazing at Indian Wells this week.

He has yet to lose a set in the California desert and stormed into the semifinals after beating Grigor Dimitrov in the quarterfinals. He convincingly defeated the Bulgarian in straight sets 7-5 6-2. He meets 20th seed Taylor Fritz in the last 4 on Saturday. In the post-match press conference, Rublev expressed his love for the sport and revealed how much he enjoys traveling and working out. He added that he is very motivated to become a better player and always looks forward to playing in the next tournament.

“I really love this sport. I enjoy travelling. I enjoy practicing. I really want to improve. At the moment I feel young and I’m really motivated to improve, to be a better player. It’s like sometimes I can’t wait to play the next tournament.” he said.

In the same press conference, Rublev, who is currently on a 13-game winning streak, also spoke about Rafael Nadal. The Spaniard had the best start to the season ever and is currently 19-0 in 2022. The Russian was nothing but impressed by Rafa, saying he is the best player in tennis history. He added that sometimes it’s best to sit back and enjoy Rafa’s game.

“Rafa is the best player in history. He can do anything. Sometimes it’s better to just sit and watch him play and enjoy.” said Rublev with a smile on his face.

Nadal and Rublev could face each other in the Indian Wells final on Sunday if they both manage to win their semifinals matches. This potential match would be their fourth meeting with Rublev after they last won in Monte Carlo last season.
