“Sometimes I feel like I don’t deserve it.” Rublev on fan support at Wimbledon

Russian tennis player Andrei Rublev said he enjoyed the atmosphere of the Wimbledon tournament.

In the quarter-final match, Rublev, the world’s seventh-ranked player, lost to Serbian world-ranked second-ranked Novak Djokovic. The meeting between tennis players lasted 2 hours 51 minutes and ended in defeat for the Russian with the score 6:4, 1:6, 4:6, 3:6.

— Of course, last year I was determined to play in one of the best tournaments in our sport.

But being here this year, I’m grateful. I am happy to have been able to give two very good weeks of tennis. I’m happy to have been able, I think, to show for the first time my best quarter-final, compared to all the other quarter-finals that I have done. For the first time, I am proud of myself in this regard.

– Did you feel supported?

— Yes, I really felt a lot of support all these days. Also today. Receiving this support is a special feeling…

I don’t know, sometimes I feel like I don’t deserve it or something. I don’t know what it takes to get that kind of support. I am very grateful to him,” Rublev said at a press conference.

In 2022, athletes from Russia and Belarus were not allowed to participate in the tournament.
