At the Cincinnati Masters in 2019, Rublev claimed a shock round-of-16 win over 20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer.

Let's say my mood was perfect. The mental part was perfect," Rublev said, when asked about the importance of his win over Federer in Cincinnati. "And the way I played, I think it's like they show me what can I achieve if I will work hard and I will do everything right, that these kind of mood I can achieve.
"And then, after that match, then it's like, Okay, we show you if you will work hard what can happen, so now go and do it and then bring me back to my normal, you know, mood and level, because I think next day I lost to Daniil maybe 6-2, 6-2 without any chance, already complaining, doing some stupid things."
