Commentators just said if Rublev plays like he did today he will get absolutely destroyed against The Nadal. How truly good is this Rublev kid? Dolgo absolutely paid an eggs today and handed an easy win to The Nadal, so it's not like Nadal is GOATing currently

I know some of us think Nadal will make the SF but are we overlooking this kid? He definitely is hitting a heavy ball. Should Nadal be worried?

They were watching something else obviously. Guy was smacking it. Accurately, too

I will go with Rafa in this, even though Rublev could certainly destroy Rafa at the moment. I want to see if Nadal can raise his level.

If Nadal wants to have any chance he needs to avoid Rublev's forehand AT ALL COST. Right now Rublev looks the better player. He had the harder draw and yet lost less sets. Nadal raised his level against Dolgopolov though.

Doesn't seem like Rublev has the type of game to take 3 sets off of Rafa. It'll be a long close match but Rafa in 4. If I had to predict- 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, 6-3 Nadal.

I'm right.

Rublev and Rublyov are both transliterations of his name into the latin alphabet. His 'real' way of writing it is in Cyrillic.
But how is the name said? Thats whats counts.
Rublev and Rublyov are two different names. Is that his name is sort of translated like we do with countries and cities? Like Milano, Torino, Kjøbenhavn, Italia etc?
