At the halfway point of the countdown, we have Andrey Rublev. Rublev has been one of the most consistent performers on the ATP tour for the last several years. His game may not be as flashy as those of compatriots Daniil Medvedev and Karen Khachanov, but he has remained a constant presence in the top 10 for quite a while.

After previously reaching two ATP 1000 singles finals, Rublev won his first singles 1000 title in 2023. Rublev has won 14 singles titles on the ATP tour and has qualified for the last three ATP Finals. Rublev seems likely to qualify again for this year’s edition, as he is currently sitting at number 5 in the singles race.

While his singles play gets most of the recognition, Andrey Rublev is a capable doubles player. He has reached four ATP 1000 doubles finals, winning one with Khachanov. In addition, he won a gold medal in mixed doubles with Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova at the Tokyo Olympics.

Can Andrey Rublev overcome his quarterfinal woes?

Nine times Andrey Rublev has reached the quarterfinal stage at a singles major. Nine times he has lost. For most players, that would still be a great achievement. For Rublev, it is a big disappointment.

Track record aside, I would be absolutely shocked if Rublev does not at least advance to a major semifinal or final. His forehand is one of the best in the world, he is a great athlete, and has an underrated first serve. He’s also still quite young, at only 25 years old. I don’t know if he will lift the big trophy, but he most certainly will have a number of chances.
