“There is no tragedy in the fact that Rublev lost to Sinner in the quarter-finals of the Australian Open” – Kamelzon

There is no need to turn the defeat of a Russian tennis player into a tragedy Andrei Rublev from an Italian Jannik sinner in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open, he performed well at the tournament, Honored Coach of Russia Vladimir Kamelzon told .

Rublev, seeded fifth, lost to world number 4 Sinner in the quarterfinals with a score of 4:6, 6:7 (5:7), 3:6. The meeting lasted 2 hours 39 minutes. The Russian has never reached the semi-finals of a Grand Slam tournament, and for Rublev, 26, it was his 10th quarter-final loss.

– There is nothing surprising that Rublev lost to Sinner. It was a match between two equal opponents, the fourth and fifth rackets. Rublev still did a great job, reaching the quarterfinals. I divide the Grand Slam tournament into two parts: the first week until the quarter-finals and the stages from the quarter-finals onwards. I really wanted Rublev to advance to the semi-finals and beyond. But the heavy workload took its toll: Andrei had already played two five-set matches in Australia.

However, Rublev is playing very well at the start of the season. There is no tragedy in the fact that he lost in the quarter-finals. Apparently he was just tired and did not have time to fully recover,” Kamelzon told .

Sinner is 22 years old. The Italian will compete with world number one, Serbian Novak Djokovic, to reach the final of the Australian Open.
