The semi-finalist of Roland Garros in 1989, Andrei Chesnokov, assessed the chances of Russian Andrei Rublev to win the Masters in Indian Wells.
“Rublev can claim victory in Indian Wells. It is in his nature that he can cause trouble to anyone. His playing reminds me of Agassi’s. Andrei plays sharply from anywhere. This is pressure on any player. If the opponent is not in very good shape, then Rublev demolishes him.
Andrew found his form. Begins to show tennis better and better. It will be hard to stop him in this tournament. Yes, he can lose, but the opponent, in order to defeat him, will need to go through a very difficult path, ”Chesnokov is quoted as saying by the Championship.
Today, March 16, Rublev defeated Francis Tiafoe in the third round of the tournament in Indian Wells with a score 6:3, 6:4.
In the fourth round the Russian will play with the Pole Hubert Hurkach, whom he beat three weeks ago in the semi-finals of the tournament in Dubai.
