I get recognised more in Banjaluka than in Monte Carlo

Tue 18 Apr 2023

Andrey Rublev is a fan favourite in Republika Srpska, after Novak Đoković. Citizens of Banjaluka welcomed him with open hands, and the young Russian player thanked the hosts for their hospitality at the official press conference.

“I thought no one would recognise me in Banjaluka, except for Novak Đoković and other tennis players. However, more people recognise me here and come up to say ‘hi’ than in Monte Carlo. I’m really happy and grateful for their hospitality”, Rublev added.
