One of the stars of the ATP’s vaunted ‘Next Generation’, Andrey Rublev is a player who could be a multi-time Grand Slam winner by the end of his career. Still only 23 years old, the Russian has already won 10 ATP titles – 8 in singles and two as a doubles player. He is also an integral part of Russia’s Davis Cup side. He is a junior French Open winner as well as having won two medals in the youth Olympics – a silver in the doubles and bronze in the singles tennis events at the 2014 Summer Games that were held in Nanjing.
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. Rublev is also a student of the game; he studied the likes of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Milos Raonic and Grigor Dimitrov in a bid to learn from their game.
Rubev turned pro in 2014 having won not only the junior French Open but also the prestigious Orange Bowl. It didn’t take too long for him to win his first title, although it is worth noting it came as a doubles competitor. The win came in the Moscow Open too, where he paired with Dmitry Tursunov to clinch his first-ever title on the tour. However, from that point on, it would take him another two years to add to his collection of titles.
There isn’t much information about their past, but they met in 2016 at a tennis practise. Andrey and Anastasija were both in their late teens at the time, and their romance grew quickly. Since the beginning of his career, Anastasija has been by his side. The two appear to have a long history together and are in a serious relationship.
Anastasija has a quiet, reserved demeanour that only her closest friends and family are privy to. Her primary focus is on her career, but her long-term goals are unknown. Currently, the beautiful goddess works as a tennis coach and plays tennis for the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA). She works with her students in a gentle and patient manner, assisting them in bringing out their best qualities in the sport. She is genuinely interested in the sport and does not participate for the sake of money or fame.
Rublev was born in Moscow to former professional boxer Andrey Rublev Sr. and tennis coach Marina Marenko of the Spartak Tennis Club. In 2009, his mother received the Medal of the Order “For Merit to the Fatherland” for her work with tennis players such as Anna Kournikova. She is also the mother of Rublev’s older half-sister, Anna Arina Marenko, a former professional tennis player.
