In a tournament set up to showcase Novak Djokovic, it looks as though Andrey Rublev will look to defend his title against a completely different Serbian, Dusan Lajovic.

I had perhaps anticipated that Rublev might be a bit too fatigued from his ATP Monte-Carlo Masters title run and with a look ahead to Madrid and Rome too, that he might take his foot off the gas here. However, the Russian put in a lot of fight in the semi-final against Alex Molcan to come through to this final. Now that he is here, surely he retains his level to put in a good display.

Lajovic disposed of Novak Djokovic in the quarter-finals, winning five straight tiebreak points from 6-3 down to win the match. Arguably just as impressively he then kept his focus to come back against Miomir Kecmanovic, another fellow countryman. Lajovic has shown flashes of good clay form this season, but will have to step up another level against Rublev.

Rublev is the form player in the world at the moment, perhaps outside of Carlos Alcaraz, and must be considered as rightful strong favourite for this title.
