Andrey Rublev, after his loss to Novak Djokovic: “He’s one of the best, I don’t know what else to say”

Andrey Rublev, beaten by Novak Djokovic in the quarter-finals (6-1, 6-2, 6-4) : “In fact, there is nothing that impressed me about him (Djokovic) tonight, simply because it’s one of the best. I knew it was going to be very tough. Today he was much better than in our previous meetings, he was playing much better. That’s it that’s all. He was serving very well, he was returning. So I don’t know what else to say. In the end, he played very well today. Now I also had some great wins here. I will try to gain experience, learn lessons.

The things I need to improve are very clear. Now I have enough time to prepare, to work. We can, maybe, build two good weeks of training before we start the indoor season. I have to use this time intelligently, to work hard and improve some things. I feel, without a doubt, that I am a better player than a year or a year and a half ago. I feel better. Mentally, I feel that this tournament is much better than the previous ones. I feel better physically too. I hope I will continue to improve. »
