Stefanos Tsitsipas made some remarks about Rublve after their match and the Russian responded with his own set of remarks.
Rublev was unaware of what Tsitsipas said but after reporters explained to him what happened he made some comments of his own. Tsitsipas said that he feels the result is a shame because he's a better player noting that Rublev prevailed with the 'few tools' that he has.
Rublev's reaction was:
“I mean, I don't know if I have few tools or not. If we go shot by shot, I think his backhand isn’t better than mine. His forehand is not better than mine. The speed serve is not better than mine. He's faster. He play much better than it. If we go for best shot, I don't think... Obviously he's better player because he's higher ranked and he achieved better results. It's obvious. There is no doubt."

He then added:
“But I don't think that I beat him because of few tools. If you take our match, every match, we have tough battles. This year I lost to him twice in three sets, and now I beat him in three sets. We always have some tough matches. Only one final in Monte-Carlo that he played really well and he destroy me quite easy, but the rest was always tough matches."
