Russian Tennis star Andrey Rublev found a way to fight back and capture the title of the Madrid Open for the first time in his career.

It was reported that Rublev was feeling sick all week and suffered from fever, however, he managed to defeat Felix Auger-Aliassime in three sets on to clinch his second Masters 1000 title.

Rublev won 4-6, 7-5, 7-5 after Auger-Aliassime double-faulted on the last point of the final.

After the match, Rublev said: “I would say this is the most proud title of my career,” adding: “I was almost dead every day. I was not sleeping at night. The last three, four days I didn’t sleep.”

The 26-year-old Russian won his first Masters 1000 title at Monte Carlo last year.

In the same context, Iga Swiatek won the Marid Open women’s title for the first time in her career on Saturday.
