Andrey Rublev and Alexander Bublik played five full sets during the fourth round of the Wimbledon Championships on Sunday and the Russian, seeded No. 7, showed off his skills and, at one point, stunned his opponent.
The moment came in the final set against Bublik. The two ran back and forth as Bublik’s backhand sent Rublev to his right. The Russian made an incredible effort to lunge for the ball and hit a terrific shot just out of Bublik’s reach.

Rublev started the match strongly, winning the first two sets 7-5, 6-3 and looking like he was headed for an easy win. However, Bublik came from behind to win tiebreakers in the third and fourth sets.
In the final set, Rublev edged out Bublik 6-4 to advance to the quarterfinals. She will be the furthest she has ever gone in the Grand Slam tournament. He has never made it past the quarterfinals at any of the four Grand Slam events.
