Russian Andrey Rublev, who lost to Serbian Novak Djokovic in three matches with a score of 1:6, 2:6, 4:6, could not qualify for the semifinals of the Open Australia 2023.

“How is it to play here with Djokovic where he has a lot of titles? Is it different from other places? Yes. We have faced him three times before, but today he played much better compared to those previous meetings, even in Turin, today I think he played a lot better, that’s all, I don’t know what else to say, he served and received very well, I don’t know nothing more to say.

I had great victories here. As always, I will try to gain experience and learn lessons. I think what I need to add is clear. Now I will have enough time to prepare, especially with the guys from the new team that I have now. Maybe we can practice for the next two weeks before the indoor season starts. We will see. You have to manage your time wisely, work hard and improve something.

Have you thought about possible damage to Novak? Have you tried getting him to use the backhand? Honestly, I tried not to think about it. I tried to tell myself, “Don’t give up”, play one more game – you never know what can happen. Stay in the game, mentally don’t give up. If I take a point on my serve, then I’ll take it, and it doesn’t matter if it’s 0-30. Only and all. But he still played very well today.

Do I feel like I’ve improved? Yes, without a doubt. From the point of view of mentality, this “Helmet” turned out to be better for me than the previous ones. Of course, I feel like I’ve improved as a player. And in the physical sense too. I hope I can add. Let’s see what happens,” Rublev told a press conference.

“It would be a mistake to blame Rublev for the loss. Djokovic is too good and motivated. He almost didn’t give Andrei a chance today. The Serb just didn’t let Rublev show his tennis. The match was completely under the control of Djokovic. There was hope that everything could change in the third set, but no. Novak first gave hope and then immediately took it away. In any case, you have to congratulate Rublev, Andrei performed well at the Australian Open, he just had no luck meeting Novak,” said 2016 Olympic doubles champion Elena Vesnina.

“Andrei lacks talent! It’s a different level of play. And it shouldn’t work – they rolled his lip! He’s not ready to win against people like Djokovic yet. Novak Djokovic is a phenomenon. He is isolated from Rublev in terms of talent, everything is natural, Djokovic has surpassed him in all respects: methodically, regularly, as it should be.

Rublev separately had harder and more powerful blows, but they weren’t enough. They couldn’t make up for the lack of skill, because Djokovic plays more diverse, defends better, counterattacks, uses different means. It’s more diverse, more interesting and more reliable,” said Viktor Yanchuk, Russia’s honored coach.

“Djokovic plays incredible tennis – it’s an incredible level! I don’t understand how you can constantly demonstrate such a level of play. Supernatural game! But I still want to praise Rublev: Andrei is awesome! “Australian Open are a great result. With Djokovic, it’s just unrealistic to fight. It’s not Rublev who lost, but Djokovic won. tournaments.
