Rublev is also already an Olympic medallist at senior level, having won a gold in the mixed doubles event at the Tokyo Olympics 2020 alongside Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova.

He is extremely at ease with that shot and can often make plenty of passing shots with it. His backhand, which is a two-hand shot, is also a shot that he can hit consistently and with power.

His first serve is powerful but his second service lacks consistency, which has seen him hit many double faults.

He favours power but that can often be his undoing; the aim to hit the ball hard often results in unforced errors. His footwork is also an aspect of his game he can work on.
