Andrey Rublev is the champion of the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament after defeating Marton Fucsovics 7-6 (4), 6-4 in one hour, 53 minutes.
The Russian capped off a brilliant week in which he only lost one set en route to his way to his eighth career title and extends his winning streak at ATP World Tour 500 events to 20 straight match wins.
Terrific Rublev picks up another 500 title
Both men had to save break points in their opening service games of the match and after that, Fucsovics was pushed to deuce, but some strong play got him through the game to make it 3-3.
The set would be decided in a tiebreaker and after early minibreaks were traded, Fucsovics missed on a forehand long to hand Rublev what would be the decisive minibreak at 4-3 and when the Hungarian again misfired with a forehand, the Russian was up a set.
Rublev broke to open up the second set after a backhand volley winner ended a long rally on break point. Fucsovics managed to only stay one break behind after winning a 14-point game and saving two more break points after good work off the ground.
Serving for the match at 5-4, Rublev held three championship points and after netting a forehand on the first, he blasted a winner off of that wing with the second to claim his eighth career title.
