Athletistic/Tennis. Viktor Yanchuk, the Honored Tennis Coach of Russia, found positive aspects in the unexpected defeat of the sixth racket in the world, Russian Andrei Rublev, in the third round of the Masters in Rome.

Recall that Rublev (4) lost 6:3, 3:6, 2:6 against the 109th racket in the world, Frenchman Alexandre Muller (Q). For Muller, the victory was his first against a player in the top 10 in the world rankings and also broke Rublev’s seven-game winning streak.

“After the victory in Madrid, Rublev experienced a natural decline. I think if he had been in a fresher state, he would not have lost to such an opponent. There is nothing wrong with that, in fact, it’s even good. “He doesn’t need to go all out at the Rome tournament, now he has enough time to prepare for Roland Garros,” Yanchuk said in an interview with TASS.
