This is the 3rd meeting between the pair, they have exchanged a win each, with rublev capturing the latest clash in Cincinnati last year 6-4 6-4.

Coming into this clash, the Russian is on a hot streak, having won a number of titles this year with the most recent victory at the Austrian capital's prestigious Vienna ATP 500 open, beating World no3 Domemeick Thiem along the way.
On the other hand, the swiss one handed powerhouse, Stan the Man is incredibly patchy this year, least to say. He won impressively against Dan Evans in the 1st round at this tournament, but looked jaded and troubled at times in his match with Paul in 2R.

What do you think about this match? How does it go? Will Rublev roll on by taking down stan? Or will the veteran turn back the clocks and deliver a hammerblow to the Russian youngster's streak?
Discuss, do vote in the poll above.

Stay tuned, stay connected, love tennis.

They can both hit hard but Stan doesn’t have the moment anymore to keep up with the Rublev that we’ve seen lately

Could Rublev's hard-hitting work to Stan's advantage? Stan likes to hit hard himself, and it's easier to do that when somebody is hitting hard at you, I find.

There once was a Russian lad
Who had a big curl
Right in the middle of his forehead
When he was good he was very good
When he was bad he was horrid.

Stan being the man now.
