Andrey Rublev: current events and form
Rublev will turn 24 this year and could be making the best season of his career. Indeed, the Russian player has started the year very well, as he has already pocketed two titles. After a defeat in the semifinals against Auger-Aliassime in Rotterdam, he triumphed over the Canadian in the final in Marseille. He went on to win the Dubai tournament, this time against the Czech Vesely. That is why he was among the candidates for the final victory at Indian Wells. In the California desert, Rublev had reached the semifinals, before being stopped by eventual tournament winner Taylor Fritz.
The world number 7 will therefore want to complete a very successful hard season before starting the clay court tournaments. But the draw was not very friendly with him with this first match against Kyrgios. Miami’s relatively open roster could do well for Rublev if he gets rid of the Australian.
Nick Kyrgios: news and form
Had he taken the lead in the second round of the Australian Open against world number one Daniil Medvedev, Kyrgios would have delighted his fans by winning the doubles tournament. He then lined up for the American tournament in Indian Wells and had a good career there. He was successful against Delbonis (6-2, 6-2) and Ruud (6-4, 6-4), before playing in the quarterfinals against Rafael Nadal. The match was especially disputed but the Mallorcan had ended up winning after the suspension (6-7, 7-5, 4-6). Anyway, this getaway to California was still a good time for the Australian.
Therefore, it will be presented in this Miami Master with renewed ambitions. In the first round he was solid against the Frenchman Adrien Mannarino, not always a gift (7-6, 6-3). Kyrgios knows Miami well, having reached the semifinals twice. He has not lost any of the four second round matches he has played and will be looking to extend his streak against Rublev. The opposition will rise, as it especially likes the circuit problem.
Rublev – Kyrgios: statistics and key points
- In 2022, Rublev reached the semifinals of three of the four ATP tournaments he played.
- Andrey Rublev is seventh in the world. Nick Kyrgios is currently 102 years old.
- Rublev has already won two titles this season and is still in a semifinal at Indian Wells.

- The two players have only faced each other twice and have won one match each.
- Kyrgios has never beaten the top 10 players in Miami.
- The Miami tournament is the first Masters in which Rublev reached the semifinals last year.
The match between the two men is arguably the most beautiful of the day in Miami and should be relatively undecided. Kyrgios has already beaten much better players than Rublev, but Rublev has appeared in great shape over the past two months. So let’s bet on the Russian who will have the advantage of his youth this Saturday evening.
