Ebene News – AU – 2021 Australian Open: Daniil Medvedev beats Andrey Rublev, result, result, video, highlights

And the seventh seed Andrey Rublev came out of a Rod Laver cooker on Wednesday (AEDT) in an incredibly fast fashion as he first succumbed to the heat, then his compatriot Daniil Medvedev in two sets

The all-Russian quarter-finals promised action, but they were insufficient as only one of the tournament’s two fittest players was able to face the Melbourne heat

In the afternoon slot, with the temperature hovering around 30 degrees Celsius, Rublev bizarrely surrendered as Medvedev, the seeded No4, missed the winner 7-5, 6-3, 6-2 to reach the last four where he will face Rafael Nadal or Stefanos Tsitsipas

Rublev, who is now 0-4 in the clam quarter-finals, hadn’t lost a set going in the last eight – and even had a two-set stint in the round of 16 – but made an exasperated figure for most of the match

As a redhead from Moscow, you could forgive Rublev, who couldn’t cope with the long rallies – a 43-stroke rally, the choice of the peloton – and the endless pressure from Medvedev

“I mean, first of all Daniil was playing – I mean, at least against me, if we take all the games I’ve played against him, today he played his best.” , said Rublev

Medvedev, who has won 19 consecutive games, is now 4-0 against his team-mate ATP, having never lost a set against Rublev. But he was not immune to these conditions; get a massage after the match for cramps before conducting your interview on the pitch

“This is the first time to be honest that I have seen Andrey so tired, so good on my side because he trains with his trainer, I think, five hours a day without a break, never tired”, Medvedev told reporters

“We always laugh at him, that he’s like a battery, like Duracell or something. I managed to tire him out

Rublev’s utter collapse – in a match that lasted just over two hours – left spectators stunned

Medvedev hid the fact that he could barely move in the last match because he was cramping Rublev, on the other hand, looked dead from half second Medvedev had his thigh massaged after the victory before doing his interview on the field

Rublev is sitting between the points and Medvedev just called the coach It’s hard # AusOpen

Rublev wins a rally of 43 moves then sits a few seconds to catch his breath This match is brutal!
