Andrey Rublev has progressed to the semi-finals of the Dubai Tennis Championships – check out his cheeky response to a reporter.
Andrey Rublev has won over the internet after politely suggesting a reporter not ask him the same question. Rublev has progressed to the semi-finals of the Dubai Tennis Championships after registering a comprehensive 6-3, 7-6 win over Botic van de Zandschulp. However, more than his performance on the court, it’s his post-match interaction that has been the topic of discussion on social media.
After sealing an impressive win, Rublev was asked by a reporter if he was nervous about defending his title in Dubai. The Russian came up with a cheeky response: “I don’t know. You ask me this question after the first round and now you ask me this again.” While it might sound like a rude reply, in reality it was not. All the while, Rublev had a sweet smile on his face and this cute gesture has won over the hearts of the fans. Meanwhile, Rublev is set to face Germany’s Alexander Zverev in the semi-finals later today.
