‘My goal is to be world number one and win Grands Slams,’ declares in-form Andrey Rublev

Andrey Rublev has laid out his intention to become world number one and win Grand Slams, although he admits he is some way short of that level just now.

Rublev has been the breakout star of 2020, winning five titles this year and breaking into the top ten for the first time.

And, after the latest of those titles in Vienna on Sunday, he laid out his ambitions for the coming years.

“Of course I think for all of us the goal is to be number one, to try to win Grand Slams,” Rublev said.

“But of course I try to be realistic and now the main thing for me if I want to be a better player is to improve the things I am missing, [the things] that I can do better and I should do better.

“If I want to be on the next level, I need to improve them.”

“I’m not expecting nothing. I just want to do my job as best as I can, to enjoy tennis, because this is what I really love.

“Of course these results give me confidence that I’m on the right [path], that I’m doing more or less the right things.

“We’ll see what’s going to happen next. I’m really looking forward [to it].”

What is happening next for Rublev is the Paris Masters followed by his first ever ATP Tour finals in London.

“I’m happy that I will compete in London for the first time. I’m really looking forward [to it],” Rublev added.

“To be able to compete against the top eight players is going to be a great experience for me.”
