“One of the greatest players in history.” Rublev explained why he lost to Djokovic in Wimbledon quarter-final

Russian tennis player Andrei Rublev praised his performance at the Wimbledon tournament.

On Tuesday, the Russian lost to Serbian Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon quarter-finals in four sets – 6:4, 1:6, 4:6, 3:6.

“I think I’m proud of myself. Of course, I wanted to win. I did everything to try to win this game.

I feel disappointed at the same time, because every time I had a small, small chance or something like that, I missed it. Every time he had a chance, this little chance, he seized it. That was the difference.

That’s why he is Novak, one of the greatest players in history.

– Can you now compare Novak with other periods of his career?

– I don’t know. He is playing better and better if we compare our matches. I think today, for the first time, I was ready enough to play a good game with him. I was mentally unprepared for previous meetings. Even the game I won against him in Serbia, I was lucky.

– You said how nervous you are when you go out on the pitch. Was it worse here at Wimbledon?

“Of course I was nervous. It’s normal when you play with a player who has never… I don’t know, never, but hasn’t lost for a long time.

Of course, you are nervous because you also have ambitions. I wanted to go as far as possible,” Rublev told a press conference.

Djokovic reached the semi-finals of Grand Slam tournaments for the 46th time. According to this indicator, the 36-year-old Serb has caught up with the Swiss leader Roger Federer.
