Rublev Overcomes Illness to Claim Madrid Open Title in Grueling Final Battle

Posted : 06 May 2024

Andrey Rublev claimed victory at the Madrid Open after a grueling battle against Felix Auger-Aliassime, securing his second title of the year despite grappling with illness. The Russian, ranked No. 8 globally, admitted to struggling with health issues throughout the week, stating he felt "almost dead every day" and endured sleepless nights leading up to the tournament.


Despite his recent struggles, Rublev showcased resilience and determination, coming back from a set down to defeat his Canadian opponent in a hard-fought final. Prior to Madrid, Rublev had faced a series of defeats but managed to turn his form around, dropping just one set on his way to the tense final showdown.


Speaking after his victory, Rublev praised Auger-Aliassime for his performance, acknowledging the intense battle they both endured on the court. Rublev credited his medical team for assisting him through his health challenges, emphasizing the remarkable feat of winning the title despite his physical condition.


In a tense and closely contested match, both players displayed remarkable skill and determination. Auger-Aliassime, despite facing setbacks with injuries to opponents earlier in the tournament, delivered a spirited performance in his first Masters 1000 final appearance. Rublev's consistent serving and pressure on Auger-Aliassime's serve ultimately proved decisive, securing him the championship title.
