Andrey Rublev meets Nikoloz Basilashvili in the first-round of the 2020 Rotterdam Open.
Rublev is an incredible talent. The Russian has already won 2 titles this year and it wouldn't be a shock if he won another couple more throughout the year. Rublev's game is quick and powerful, he is able to move opponents around the court and impose himself in a match. Rublev is continuously growing as a player and it will be interesting to see how much potential he has.
Nikoloz Basilashvili had a good 2019 season and will want to repeat this in 2020. The Georgian is a solid baseline player and enjoys long rallies. Basilashvili can beat better players than himself and will try to take all the opportunities he is given. Basilashvili will challenge in tournaments this year, but he just needs to show consistency in his game.
These two players have met 3 times before, with Basilashvili winning 2 of those encounters. All of their encounters were last year and Rublev won the latest one. This will be an interesting match to watch, because both players could win it. But with Rublev's recent form and growth in his game, I have to back the Russian.
Rublev in 3 sets.
