In the second game, Zverev started to serve better. I had a chance to catch a break, but I was unlucky. And then the classic tie-break, which I did well.

In the third set, I managed to get off to a good start and take his serve early. Then there were a few break points, the last game was dramatic, but I think I played well,” Rublev is quoted in the ATP press service.
