Rublev as a good luck charm

Sun 23 Apr 2023

Rublev was standing in the way of Lajovic’s first title in Umag, the same as now in Banjaluka. Only
back then they played against each other in the early stages of the tournament and now they met in
the final.
“I would like to have Rublev always stand in my way if I’m going to win the title. Maybe he is my good
luck charm, although we’re good friends. Unfortunately, one had to lose. However, he was a very
different player back then.
