Yanchuk: “It’s a shame we won’t see Rublev in the men’s team for the Olympics, but the team has a balanced composition”

Honored coach of Russia Viktor Yanchuk told that the composition of Russian tennis players for the 2024 Olympics looks equal, but with Andrei Rublev it would be stronger.

In men’s singles, Daniil Medvedev, Roman Safiullin, Pavel Kotov and Aslan Karatsev are registered. Medvedev/Safiullin and Kotov/Karatsev will perform in pairs. Rublev and Karen Khachanov will miss the Games in Paris.

— It’s a shame that we don’t see Rublev in the men’s team, the others are equal, more or less. Andrey would qualify for awards. Medvedev is of course a contender; the rest will depend on his luck. It will be a useful trip for Kotov; he is a young tennis player in full progress. It’s difficult to say about the places, because everything will depend on the draw and the form of the guys. But the composition is equal. We expect high results from Daniil, maybe he will be in good shape for the Olympics. Yes, he doesn’t play particularly well on clay, but he can get his act together and win a medal.

— What do you think of the Safiullina and Medvedev couple?

— Safiullin is fast, suitable for a couple, and Daniil is more experienced and reliable. There is a good wind, both tennis players keep the rhythm perfectly,” Yanchuk told .

Paris will host the Olympic Games from July 26 to August 11. The tennis tournament will take place on clay courts.
