Four sets played, four sets won for Andrey Rublev at this year’s Miami Open presented by Itau.
On Sunday, the sixth seed backed up his opening-round victory against J.J. Wolf by dispatching Serbian Miomir Kecmanovic 6-1, 6-2 to reach the fourth round at the hard-court ATP Masters 1000 event.
In a dominant display, Rublev timed his forehand cleanly throughout the 58-minute clash, striking the ball through 2022 quarter-finalist Kecmanovic on the fast courts to improve to 2-0 in their ATP Head2Head series.
Rublev’s fourth-round opponent will be Jannik Sinner or Grigor Dimitrov. Rublev is a 12-time tour-level titlist, a tally which includes five ATP 500 crowns, but is chasing his first Masters 1000 title in Florida.
The 25-year-old arrives in Miami off the back of a fourth-round exit in Indian Wells. His best result at the ATP Masters 1000 event in Miami came in 2021, when he reached the semi-finals.
