On paper you’d expect this one to go to the Russian, but Rublev’s preparations in Adelaide didn’t go well. He went out to Roberto Bautista Agut in the first round in Adelaide 1 and then to Thansi Kokkinakis in Adelaide 2.
The pair met six times with Rublev leading 4–2. In fact, it was the first two encounters that the older man, Thiem, won. Rublev has not lost to the Austrian since 2018.
