Quarter-finalist at the 2023 Australian Open, Rublev wins the fifteenth title of his career, one week before the start of the 2024 edition of the first round of the Grand Slam in Melbourne.
Rublev ideally launches his year thanks to this tenth success on hard court. He beat the Frenchman Arthur Fils in the quarter and then the Chinese Shang Juncheng in the half, each time in three sets. Ruusuvuori, 24, remains in search of a first title on the main circuit. He was playing his second final, after that at the 250 tournament in Pune, India, in 2022. The Hong Kong tournament was making its return to the ATP calendar, after more than twenty years of absence.
