Dimitrov vs Rublev
Dimitrov, first of all, is famous for having twice reached the semi-finals of "major" in Australia and Great Britain. During his career, he managed to win 8 titles and earn over $ 14.1 million in prize money. By the way, on the open hard he has 168 wins in 261 meetings.
"That level of tennis, which I now demonstrate, I'm quite happy with - I can spend 3 hours or more on the court and show my maximum. I do not change anything in my tennis, because everything suits me in my career. Now there are no weak rivals, so I should guess how far I will go in Melbourne prematurely, "Dimitrov said.
I will note this season, Grigor flew to the semifinals of the competition in Brisbane, and at the Australian Open passed two laps, beating Novak and McDonald. The match against the latter lasted 3 hours and 28 minutes and ended with a score of 4:6, 6:2, 6:4, 0:6, 8:6.
The best indicator Rublev was the hit in the quarterfinals at the "Slam" in New York-2017. He won 1 professional tournament, earning just over $ 1.8 million in prize money. On the open hard he has 50 wins in 79 meetings.
"The match against Ferrer was for me a real test, because it's the top player. It was difficult to play at the reception against the Spaniard, so there were a lot of breaks, "Rublev said.
The Russian is in excellent shape, having reached this season's finals at the Doha tournament, and in Melbourne already having "lifted the scalp" from such masters as Ferrer and Baghdatis. The match against the latter lasted 3 hours and 5 minutes and ended with a score of 6:4, 6:7, 6:4, 6:2.
Rublev started this season very well. In addition, Andrew is already quite confidently coping with Dimitrov, who feels himself in Melbourne uncertainly and fairly mediocre opponents is very difficult.
