Andrey Rublev’s left knee will remember it. Opposed to Carlos Alcaraz during the 2nd day of the red group at the Turin Masters, the Russian suffered the law of the Spaniard in the first set (lost 5-7) before conceding the break during the first game of the second set. Faulty on the forehand, the world number 5 completely broke down nervously. With an astonishing gesture of anger, he hit his racket six times against... his left knee.
Bleeding at the point of impact, Rublev then calmed down at the change of ends. His racket, victim of his blood attack but still usable, was still replaced. Already unhappy against his compatriot Daniil Medvedev on Monday, the Russian is having a complicated week in Italy.
