Rublev wins fifth ATP title of season to book Tour Finals spo
The Russian cruised to a 6-4, 6-4 win in under an hour and a quarter
Andrey Rublev eased to victory over Lorenzo Sonego on Sunday in the Vienna final to win his fifth ATP title of the season and secure a spot at the Tour Finals in London.
The Russian cruised to a 6-4, 6-4 win in under an hour and a quarter and has won more ATP tournaments this season than any other player.
He will make his debut at the season-ending Tour Finals, which start on November 15, being held in London for the final time.
The 23-year-old Rublev won the Vienna event without even dropping serve and was far too strong for Italian lucky loser Sonego, who beat Novak Djokovic in the quarterfinals.
Only world number one Djokovic has won as many matches as Rublev’s tally of 39 in 2020.
Rublev, ranked eighth, is the first Russian to win five titles in a season since Nikolay Davydenko in 2009.
