Rotterdam Open Tennis

Andrey Rublev defeated Marton Fucsovics 7-6 and 6-4 to win the Rotterdam Open Tennis Title and extend his ATP 500 winning streak to a remarkable 20 matches.

The title is the Russian's fourth straight ATP 500 title after winning the last three ATP 500 events of 2020 in Hamburg, St. Petersburg and Vienna. The world number eight has also now won seven straight ATP tour championship matches.

Fucsovics dropped only one set on his way to the title match and was hoping to become only the second qualifier to lift the cup in Rotterdam.

The Hungarian kept the pressure on, but Rublev saved all four break points Fucsovics created as he marched to an impressive victory.
