I started a similar thread years ago but can't find it. People were laughing back then, but now with 2 top tenners, Medvedev(23, 5th) and Khachanov(23, 9th), and another young, former top 40, Rublev(21, 43rd currently & has been 31st), it's about time we call the Golden age of Russian men's Tennis is about to start. Meddy is on a hot run, been in the final of Montreal and won Cincy, and looks set for another encounter with Djokovic at QF of USO. Khacha lost to Meddy in SF of Montreal and has had a consistent year which saw his ranking rising to 9th. 1st RD loss to Pospisil is disappointing, but he may expect a strong finish to the year where he will try to defend his Paris title in October. Rublev has a potentially great match v NK tomorrow. I think he'll win in 5, but let's wait and see. If Rublev keeps doing well and these 3 all make it to ATP finals, what a great first step that would be for Russian men's tennis after they have seen numerous female counterparts doing well on tour over the years.
