Athletistic/Tennis. Russian tennis player Andrey Rublev has commented on his loss to Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon quarter-finals.

In the quarter-finals, the seven-time Wimbledon champion beat Rublev 4:6, 6:1, 6:4, 6:3.

“I have mixed feelings. This is probably my first quarter-final in a Grand Slam tournament, which I can be proud of. But, of course, I wanted to win. I did everything I could for that,” Rublev said.

He also expressed his frustration, noting that whenever he had small chances, he either lacked the power to punch or, conversely, put on too much and missed.

“Novak used every opportunity. Especially in the third set, whenever it was 30-0 in my favor or at a break point, I was missing something as he used every chance he had. That’s the difference,” explained Rublev.

Rublev also noted that with each new game against Djokovic he plays better. The Russian admitted that he was prepared enough this time to put on a good match against Djokovic, unlike previous encounters where he was not mentally prepared. He also noted that in today’s match he couldn’t convert his small chances, unlike Djokovic, and therefore considers him one of the greatest players in the history of tennis.
