All Round View (Peshawar): Russian tennis player Andrey Rublev has said that he could have gone for a semifinal spot in this year’s redaction of the ATP Finals had he not lost his second round-robin match from a match point up, ATP reported the Russian as saying.

Rublev defeated Austria’s Dominic Thiem, who already got his top spot in Group London 2020 and a place in the semifinals on Tuesday, 6-2, 7-5. The Russian previously lost to Spaniard Rafael Nadal and Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas.

“I started really well, since the first point, since the first return,” Rublev said in his interview. “Dominic didn’t start that well and I took advantage from the beginning. That helped me to have more confidence and helped me to play better and better… I wish Dominic the best of luck in the semi-finals, he deserves to be where he is and he deserves to win the title.”

“I feel happy to be here. I was so close in my second match. I had a match point and I was serving, so it could have been a completely different story if I won two matches. I would maybe still have a chance to be in the semi-finals… It is a part of life, I just need to keep working and we will see what is going to happen next,” the Russian tennis player added.
