"It's a big pleasure and honour to share the court with Andy" says Rublev after Abu Dhabi triumph

Andrey Rublev defeated Andy Murray in the Mubadala World Tennis Championship event final in Abu Dhabi and after the match the Russian paid tribute to Murray.

Watching Andy Murray compete on the courts have been a pleasure for many tennis players including Andrey Rublev. The former world number one was effectively retired after multiple surgeries but the urge to continue playing prevailed and Murray is showing a very good level lately. After their match Rublev said:

"It’s a big pleasure and honour to share the court with Andy. I don’t know where he is, I think he has left... doesn’t matter... Ah, no!. He’s still here!. Yeah, now I can see you."

Rublev was also asked about winning a medal at hte Olympic games to which he responded:

"It’s something that happens only once in four years, and every athlete dreams about this and works super hard to compete in the Olympics. To win a medal is like a double dream. And in the end, when you’re there, maybe you don’t realize it, but then when the moment comes and it’s the final and you make it, it’s a surreal feeling”.
