I took  just  62 minutes  got Rublev to dismantle  Federer in Cincinnatti in 2019 and beat Djokovic last year as well.   He took Nadal - the king of clay - to the cleaners in 3 sets - two of which won by 6-2, 6-2 one has to ask is this guy on the way up to number 1 in the world?   Nadal broke his service 2 tines - Rublev broke his 8 times,

This youngster has beaten besides the three players mentioned  all of Thiem, Tsitsipas and Sverev repeatedly as well.   He is a slim player  and relatively small - but he is a modest, kind and friendly person  that has it in him to become a symbol fir many young people to follow.   

His systematically dismantling Nadal today is  a huge achievement - especially since it happened on clay,   He is very likely going to meet  Tsitsipas in the final.   In the US Maters last year ne beat Tsitsipas and a few months later beat him in the final on clay in the Hamburg Open tournament.    If he wins in Monte Carlo - he is likely to move up two positions in the rankings to number 6.    

He is not known as "Red Hot Andrey Rublev" for nothing.

Aside from Rublev there are three other youngsters on the way up the rankings and those are Davidovich Fokina, Sinner and Suuvuuori - even younger than the 23 year-old Rublev.
