Yeah I can see Rublev directing everything to the backhand & not relenting. Ruud must find the backhand up the line to stop Rublev cheating.Nice, rematch of the Ruud-Rublev encounter I attended live last year. Looking forward to it.
Ruud obviously always has the ability to completely overpower Rublev with his (much heavier) FH (as he did last year in set 1), but overall Rublev is just the stronger player. His IO-FH is just a nightmare to deal with for a player like Ruud (as it is for Thiem or also RBA earlier).
