For the fourth year in a row, Andrey Rublev has qualified for the Nitto ATP Finals. After defeating Matteo Arnaldi on Thursday to advance to the Vienna quarterfinals, the 26-year-old secured his place at the season finale.
The fifth player to secure a spot in Turin from November 12–19 is Rublev. Additionally qualified for the year-end championships are Daniil Medvedev, Jannik Sinner, Carlos Alcaraz, and Novak Djokovic.
“It feels great,” Rublev said. “It’s great news. After the match, I didn’t know that if I won the match I would qualify for sure, so I didn’t know that and it’s a great feeling, great news. Looking forward [to it] and happy to be part of the Nitto ATP Finals for one more year.”
Rublev’s Tennis Triumphs and Year-End Showdown
Andrey Rublev has been enjoying a consistent season, securing his 50th win for the third consecutive year. In 2023, he achieved a major milestone by clinching his first ATP Masters 1000 title in Monte Carlo, a testament to his growing prowess.
The Russian tennis star added to his victories by claiming the Bastad trophy, marking the third time in four years that he has won multiple tour-level titles.
With final appearances in Dubai, Banja Luka, Halle, and Shanghai, he has equaled his career-high Pepperstone ATP Ranking at World No. 5.
A year ago, Rublev achieved a career-first by advancing to the semi-finals at the Nitto ATP Finals. This remarkable feat came on the back of victories against formidable opponents, including Daniil Medvedev and Stefanos Tsitsipas.
His track record at the season finale stands at 4-6, showcasing his potential for making deep runs in prestigious tournaments.
As the year-end championships draw near, only three singles places remain. Stefanos Tsitsipas, a former Nitto ATP Finals champion and currently sixth in the Pepperstone ATP Live Race To Turin, is the next contender in line to secure a spot at the prestigious event.
The competition is heating up as these elite players vie for their places in the tennis season’s grand finale.
