Andrey Rublev vs Max Purcell – Match Predictions

Purcell won a set in both of the previous matches against Rublev. Can he put up a fight this time as well?

Andrey Rublev 3-0

Rublev is having a decent season but feeling is that he is still not on the level to be able to attack a Grand Slam title. At Wimbledon, he will start against a player he knows well from the beginning of his pro career. Purcell has not seen the success Rublev has and the difference of the quality will allow Rublev to start with a straight set victory.

First set over 10.5 games

Both players will be under pressure from the start and it will take a while before we see a break. Purcell is not on Rublev’s level but the Australian can serve well and take the opening set over the 10.5 games margin.

Rublev has been in the Top 10 for a while now and he is considered as a ‘dark-horse’ candidate to win the tournament and if he is that good, we will see in the opener against Purcell.

Andrey Rublev

Rublev is currently ranked at No. 7 in the world, two places lower than his career high. The Russian is 33-13 for the season and 6-1 on grass. He is coming off a disappointing loss in the final of Halle Open where he was outplayed by Alexander Bublik in three sets.

This will be Rublev’s fourth appearance in the Wimbledon main draw and his biggest success came in 2021 when he reached round of 16 losing to Marton Fucsovics.

This season, Rublev won the ATP Masters in Monte Carlo defeating Holger Rune in the final.

Max Purcell

Purcell is enjoying his best career rankings as he is 62nd in the world. The Australian is 39-12 for the season including 0-1 on grass.

This will be his third time on Wimbledon and he has never made it past the first round of the main draw. This year he is coming off an opening round loss to Feliciano Lopez in Mallorca which ended up being the last career win of the Spaniard.

The 25-year-old, won three challengers this season, in Chennai, Bangalore and Pune and made it another three finals.
