The Masters 1000 Series is a tournament held just nine times a year at a level just below the four majors. This year’s Masters 1000 series was held last March, the BNP Paribas Open and the Miami Open, and the Monte Carlo Masters was the third tournament this year. It was also the first competition held on clay courts. In the previous two competitions, Carlos Alkaras (2nd place, Spain) and Danil Medvedev (5th place, Russia) won each.
Rublev, who had lost both of his previous two Masters 1000 singles finals, such as the Monte Carlo Masters in April 2021 and the Cincinnati Masters in September, was defeated again in the third set, 1-4, but quickly overturned his inferiority and finished in 2 hours and 35 minutes. After a close match, he was thrilled with his first victory in the 1000 series.
Rublev became a hot topic by writing the message “No War Please” to the TV relay camera during the ATP Tour tournament in February 2022, when Russia invaded Ukraine. The fans who sent their support are amazing.”
