Now that Berrettini has lost, reaching QF would push Rublev to #8 unless RBA or Schwartzman make SF, which is unlikely.Expected, rublev should make it to the top 10 soon. The Russian should reach the QF now, an interesting match with tsitsipas most likely awaits him there.
Rublev winning a lot on his serve certainly helped him here, gave him easy games and he could have focused on breaking anderson more. Also, the last 2 matches were routine is important considering he played hamburg and had a 5 setter in the first round, it should help him conserve energy for the rest of the tournament and hopefully he won't be too tired in the next few matches. Looking good so far.
Pssst someone predicted this 12 months back....Rublev is now 28-6 in this season with winning 3 titles. He should be in the top 10 soon.
