On October 29, Russia’s Andrey Rublev will face Netherland’s Botic van de Zandschulp in the quarter-final match of the St. Petersburg Open, 2021. The difference in class between tennis players is quite noticeable. However, their duel can still be competitive.

Rublev began his journey to the home event with a comfortable victory over Ilya Ivashka (6-4, 6-4). Andrey’s early victory should boost his confidence in his talents, but it’s far from certain that he will be able to keep the prize. Recent battles including a Russian participant have yielded a slew of nasty surprises. As a result, we are pessimistic about the future.

In Russia’s cultural capital, Zandschulp has already won four bouts, three of which he won dry in his favour. Botic plays fantastic tennis, and there’s no question that he’ll cause a lot of issues for elite players. The Dutch representative continues to work hard on himself, and one should be happy that his efforts are rewarded on a regular basis.

The lone head-to-head match between the sportsmen, which took place on the courts of Rotterdam in 2017, ended with Zandschulp triumphing in the most difficult three-set clashes. At the same time, it is worth mentioning that Rublev has made remarkable development since that time, allowing him to enter the forthcoming game as a clear favourite. This will be their second career meeting.

In terms of functionality, Zandschulp is fully prepared for the match. Rublev, on the other hand, will not be easily defeated within his own country’s confines. Therefore, it will be intriguing to watch as to who will cruise forward into the semi-finals.

Match Prediction: Andrey Rublev to win in straight sets.
