Andrey Rublev vs Jeremy Chardy: Preview

Andrey Rublev

Russian Andrey Rublev came through a high-quality encounter with the returning Andy Murray on Wednesday night. He kept his serve throughout a straight-sets tussle, and that confidence should take him on to the latter stages of this tournament as probably the favourite for the title now.

Rublev is a flat-track bully of the highest degree and can often defeat players outside the top 20 in vicious straight-set hammerings.

World no.64 Jeremy Chardy continued his fine 2021 form with a Round of 16 victory over recent Montpellier Open champion and 6th seed David Goffin via two strong tiebreak performances.

The Frenchman has been excellent so far this season and came back from a set down against compatriot Ugo Humbert in the first round to claim another scalp alongside other big names this year like Fabio Fognini and Marin Cilic

This will be the 4th meeting between the duo. Rublev leads the H2H 2-1. The Russian won the last time they met at the 2020 US Open.

Andrey Rublev vs Jeremy Chardy: Prediction

Andrey Rublev

The Frenchman seems to be the ‘king of tie-breaks’ for this tournament. He has won his last two matches with a scoreline of 4-6,7-6(5),7-6(4) and 7-6(3),7-6(5). He is in hot form and may take Rublev to a tie-breaker.

But Rublev will be ready for every challenge thrown at him. After the exit of Medvedev and Zverev early in the tournament, he will be the favorite to win the tournament. Expect him to cruise into the semi-finals easily.

Prediction: Rublev to win in straight sets.
