I’ve always liked tennis better than boxing

Rublev’s father is a professional boxer but Rublev never seriously considered boxing.

“I did not consider boxing. Only tennis. Tennis was always on my mind. I enjoyed playing tennis with my peers and I only watched older people in boxing rings. Tennis was full of kids so it was easier. If it had been different, I might have chosen boxing but I was never interested in boxing, only tennis”, Rublev explained.
