Andrey Rublev v Philipp Kohlschreiber Head to Head
Kohlschreiber won their only previous meeting in 2017 in Hamburg.
Rublev Topples Thompson
World No. 7 Andrey Rublev reached his second quarterfinal at the Hale Open as the Russian knocked out Australia’s Jordan Thompson in the second round of the tournament on Wednesday.
Rublev saved one of two break points and converted three of six to beat the World No. 81, 6-4, 6-4 in an hour and 27 minutes.
The Russian had begun his campaign with a 6-3, 7-6 (7-5) first-round victory over compatriot Karen Khachanov, who had beaten Rublev in the 2017 Halle Open quarterfinals.
Seeded fourth in the tournament, Rublev improved to 31-9 this season. He won his fourth ATP 500 final and eighth career title by claiming the title in Rotterdam.
Rublev also made it to a maiden Masters final in Monte Carlo, and his first semifinal appearance in Miami.
Having not played much on grass before, the 23-year-old is off to a 2-0 start this season and will be hoping to reach a first semifinal on grass on Friday.
Kohlschreiber In First Quarterfinal in Two Years
On Friday, Rublev will meet 2011 Halle champion and 2008 runner-up Philipp Kohlschreiber, who defeated France’s Corentin Moutet 6-4, 7-6 (7-4) in the second round on Wednesday.
The 37-year-old German saved all three of the break points that he faced and won 75% service points and 31% return points to wrap up the contest in an hour and 48 minutes.
The World No. 128, who received a wild card for the tournament, had begun his campaign with a 6-4, 6-3 first round win over Austria’s Jurij Rodionov.
An eight-time ATP champion from 18 finals, Kohlschreiber improved to 4-2 in 2021. This will be the German’s first quarterfinal appearance since reaching the last eight in Munich in 2019. He last played in a semifinal in Auckland the same year.
The former World No. 16 had a decent run at Roland Garros, reaching the third round of the tournament. He has featured in just one major quarterfinal, and that was at Wimbledon in 2012. Over the years, the veteran has been a solid performer on grass, and he improved to 60-38 on the surface with the win on Wednesday.
Rublev v Kohlschreiber Prediction and Tip
There is something about ATP 500 events that brings the best out of Rublev. He is 27-2 in the ATP 500 tournaments since August 2020. Expect him to continue his dominance and reach another semifinal with a win on Friday.
