Russia’s tennis star Andrey Rublev has again lost his temper on the tennis court. The 26-year-old is regarded as one of the best players currently playing in men’s tennis in the singles category.
In the last few months, Rublev has been in the news for the wrong reasons as he continued to vent his frustration on the court during matches. A similar incident happened during the Halle Open.
In a video that is available on the social media platform X -- previously known as Twitter -- the Moscow-born star, after missing a forehand, was left frustrated.
He ended up screaming at himself and threw his racquet on the court. His frustration was understandable as he ended up losing in the first round to America’s Marcos Giron in the round of 32 in straight sets with a score of 6-4, 7-6.
Earlier this year, Rublev was disqualified from the contest after screaming on the chair umpire during an ATP event in Dubai. He did that during the third set of the semifinal of the mega-event against Alexander Bublik. After that incident, the current world number one six admitted that he has to improve his behaviour in court.
Rublev is having a mixed campaign. He recently won his second ATP 1000 Masters competition in Madrid, where he defeated Canada’s Felix Auger Aliassime in the final with a score of 4-6, 7-5, 7-5.

Andrey Rublev suffered a defeat in the first round of the Halle Open.
Other than that, Rublev has not been able to set the world alight with his performances. Perhaps his most impressive outing, other than the Madrid Open, came during the Australian Open, where he was eventually knocked out after losing in the quarterfinal to current world number one Jannik Sinner in straight sets with a score of 6-4, 7-6, 6-3.
He recently participated in the French Open but also suffered a shocking exit after losing in the third round to Italy’s Matteo Arnaldi in straight sets with a score of 7-6, 6-2, 6-4.
