Stat of the Day: Andrey Rublev has now won 5 of the last 9 ATP 500s he’s played
He's also won 37 of his last 41 matches at that level.
Published Feb 26, 2022
The ‘King of 500s’ kept living up to that name in Dubai on Saturday, winning the ATP 500 event with a 6-3, 6-4 victory over Jiri Vesely, who had taken out some very big names—most notably Novak Djokovic—en route to the biggest final of his career.
Rublev won his 10th career ATP title, and the five biggest have all come at ATP 500s—he’s actually been by far the best player at that level since the summer of 2020.
MOST ATP 500 MATCH WINS SINCE AUGUST 2020:
37: Andrey Rublev (37-4)
25: Stefanos Tsitsipas (25-8)
20: Cam Norrie (20-8, still to play Acapulco final tonight)
16: Jannik Sinner (16-6)
16: Felix Auger-Aliassime (16-8)
Rublev has actually won 5 of the 9 ATP 500 events he’s played in that time, also reaching the quarterfinals or better at the only four he didn’t win.
RUBLEV AT ATP 500s SINCE AUGUST 2020:
~ Won 2020 Hamburg
~ Won 2020 St. Petersburg
~ Won 2020 Vienna
~ Won 2021 Rotterdam
~ SFs at 2021 Dubai (l. to Karatsev)
~ QFs at 2021 Barcelona (l. to Sinner)
~ F at 2021 Halle (l. to Humbert)
~ SFs at 2022 Rotterdam (l. to Auger-Aliassime)
~ Won 2022 Dubai
Rublev’s 23-match winning streak at ATP 500 events between Hamburg in 2020 and Dubai in 2021 was the second-longest winning streak at ATP 500 events since that level of tournament began in 2009 (Roger Federer holds the record for longest ATP 500 winning streak with 28 wins in a row between 2014 and 2016).
The Russian is now also only the second player born in 1997 or later to have 10 or more career ATP titles (along with Alexander Zverev, who was also born in 1997).
