Since the competition was resumed in the midst of a health emergency due to COVID-19, the Russian has accumulated a record of 29-2 in events of this category, including the titles won in Hamburg, Saint Petersburg, Vienna (all in 2020) and in Rotterdam this season.
Rublev will play the final of the NOVENTI OPEN against the winner of the duel between Italian Matteo Berrettini and Australian Alex de Miñaur.
