The success stories for Jurij Rodionov were rather rare in the past few weeks. Now the Austrian, who is also an option for the place behind Dennis Novak for the Davis Cup final tournament in Innsbruck at the end of November, celebrated another victory in Moscow. Rodionov defeated Denis Istomin 6: 4 and 6: 2 at the beginning of the qualification of the ATP Tour 250 event in Moscow. Opponent for a place in the main draw will be Ilya Marchenko, who was able to assert himself against Radu Albot.
As expected, the 28 grid in the Russian capital has to do without the reigning US Open winner. Daniil Medvedev had already indicated after his departure in Indian Wells against Grigor Dimitrov that he could do without a start. Which he did now. Andrey Rublev is now in first position.
