Wimbledon 2023 Andrey Rublev Victory

In the 2023 Wimbledon tournament, broadcasted live on BBC TV, radio and online platforms, Russian tennis star Andrey Rublev has advanced to his first Wimbledon quarter-final. This achievement was sealed with an extraordinary shot in the final game of a five-set match against Alexander Bublik at the All England Club. The showdown, which took place from 3-16 July, kept fans on the edge of their seats.

Rublev secured an exhilarating 7-5 6-3 6-7 (6-8) 6-7 (5-7) 6-4 victory on Centre Court, after an intense match against Bublik who demonstrated skill and strategy with underarm serves in the fourth and eighth games of the second set. Bublik’s performance sparked a vigorous comeback, pushing the match to five sets, but it was Rublev who ultimately triumphed.

The climax of the match came with a spectacular point where Rublev, the tournament’s seventh seed, dived to his right and achieved a winning shot that left the audience astonished. This remarkable point elicited a standing ovation from the thrilled Centre Court audience, who recognized it as one of the tournament’s best moments.

The electrifying finale was praised by John McEnroe, a three-time Wimbledon champion and BBC commentator, as one of the “great shots we’ve seen here”. McEnroe applauded the “incredible” shot, branding it an “electric way” to conclude the match.

The surprise of the match wasn’t only limited to the spectators; Bublik himself was taken aback by Rublev’s diving shot, acknowledging it with applause from his end of the court. Yet, Rublev later confessed it was a stroke of luck he doubted he could repeat, describing it as the “most lucky shot ever.”

Rublev now faces the prospect of competing against either current champion Novak Djokovic or Poland’s Hubert Hurkacz in the quarter-final.

This win holds significance for 25-year-old Rublev, marking his entrance to the quarter-finals in every Grand Slam. However, Rublev has yet to surpass this stage, having experienced losses in the last eight of the Australian and French Opens twice, as well as three defeats at the same stage of the US Open.

Rublev endured a painful finger injury during the match, needing medical assistance at 4-4 in the opening set. However, even with his bandaged finger, Rublev benefitted from Bublik’s double fault on set point to claim the set.

Bublik, in his first appearance in the last 16 of a grand slam, kept the audience captivated with his daring underarm serves. But despite his valiant effort, he eventually fell to Rublev’s tenacity and skill.

Meanwhile, in other matches, Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov, the 21st seed, wrapped up victory in the last of the third-round matches, beating 10th seed American Frances Tiafoe in straight sets.
