In a commanding display, Andrey Rublev secured his spot in the Madrid Open final by defeating Taylor Fritz with a convincing 6-4, 6-3 victory. The Russian, seeded seventh and now the top contender in the tournament, showcased resilience after an initial setback, ultimately sealing the match in straight sets.

Breaking early in the first game, Fritz momentarily gained momentum, prompting some early frustration from Rublev. However, the Russian swiftly regained his composure, promptly breaking back and dominating the remainder of the set, clinching it with two consecutive love games.

The second set witnessed a similar narrative, as both players held serve until Rublev made his move to go up 4-2. From there, he asserted control, closing out the match with authority by winning his final service games to love.

This triumph marks a significant turnaround for Rublev, who entered the tournament on a disheartening four-match losing streak. Now, he finds himself in contention for his second title of the year, having already dispatched formidable opponents like Carlos Alcaraz along the way.

Awaiting Rublev in the final is either the unseeded Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime or the Czech 30th seed Jiri Lehecka, setting the stage for an intriguing showdown for the Madrid Open crown.
