Andrey Andreyevich Rublev was born on October 20th, 1997, in Moscow, Russia, to parents with a background in sports. His father, Andrey Rublev Sr., was a former professional boxer, and his mother, Marina Marenko, was a tennis coach. His mother even worked with Anna Kournikova, former world no. 8 on the WTA Tour.

Rublev's sister, Anna Arina Viktorovna Marenko, was also a professional tennis player, and Rublev even has Austrian ancestry through his grandmother, Larisa Genrikhovna Rubleva.

Like many fellow ATP pros, the Russian enjoyed a lot of success already in the junior categories. He reached the final in the 2014 Australian Open Boys' singles, and a few months later, he won the Roland Garros Boys' event.

After his French Open triumph, Rublev also reached the world no. 1 spot in juniors, and soon after that, a natural progression to the main ATP Tour followed. In 2015, he played his first ATP main draw at the Delray Beach Open, where he lost to America's Steve Johnson.

Already in 2017, still as a teenager, Rublev showed his potential when he won the Croatia Open and reached the US Open quarterfinals. He has then won multiple ATP 250 and 500 tournaments and regularly made it to the second weeks of the Grand Slams, reaching five quarterfinals in 2022 and 2023 out of seven major appearances.

The Russian played multiple ATP 1000 finals, but his biggest career triumph came at the 2023 Monte-Carlo Masters, where he won his first ATP Masters 1000 title. Rublev also won the 2021 Davis Cup alongside his compatriots Daniil Medvedev, Karen Khachanov, and Aslan Karatsev.
