In the second round-robin match of the ATP Finals, Andrey Rublev was up against Carlos Alcaraz. Both the players were yet to win a match in the tournament but the Spaniard managed to beat Rublev to secure his first-ever win at the ATP Finals. During the match, Rublev was seen frustrated with himself and hitting his knee with his racket. Nick Kyrgios said, about Rublev injuring himself:

I mean, from someone who doesn’t hold their composure pretty well, like myself, this is crazy. I’ve never done that, to be honest. I mean, he needs a knee. He needs to move.

This is the second time that the Russian has hurt himself out of frustration. Even in the previous match against Daniil Medvedev, Rublev punched his racket and hurt his fists. As a person suffering from a knee injury, Nick hopes that Rublev is fine for his next match.
