Andrei Rublev beat Emil Rossovory 6-4, 6-2, 6-7(2), 6-3 in the second round of the Australian Open. Most of the result was said about the clash of the Russian with the fans who hung the Ukrainian flag in the stands. It happened early in the second set. Interestingly, Rublev immediately approached the verdict.

The player asked for a response, but told the Associated Press it wasn’t about science. Rublev claimed that the fans had insulted him, so he did not intend to wait and informed the referee of the verdict.

– I told the judge directly. It’s not about science, because they can hang whatever they want. I understand this situation. I mean, they started calling me names. So I said to the referee, “Please, can you ask them to stop calling me names? It’s not about science,” Rublev said.

The situation calmed down after some time and the 25-year-old could focus on the match. Remember, after Russia attacked Ukraine, he openly opposed the war.

Fans remember: his behavior after the match with Hubert Hurkacz in February last year, when he wrote on camera: “No to war, please” (“No to war, please”).

Rublev will face Daniel Evans in the next round of the Australian Open.
