Andrey Rublev vs Robin Haase

ATP Monte Carlo Masters

16/04/18 @ 7:05pm AEST

First time meeting for these two players as young Russian up-and-comer, Andrey Rublev, takes on Dutch veteran Robin Haase in Monte Carlo.

While neither player has had a particularly impressive run of late, Rublev has found himself in more of a rut than most, losing his previous 4 consecutive matches at Miami, Indian Wells, Acapulco and Rotterdam. Haase has also struggled with recent form, losing in 3 sets (4-6, 64, 7-5) to Mirza Basic – an opponent he should have certainly beaten with ease – in Casablanca, on clay.

When he puts his mind to it and executes his game, the young Russian is a generational talent and exceptionally difficult to defeat. This match looks like it may go the distance as both players serve and return the ball well; the clay courts of Monte Carlo will only add to the attrition.
