Russian tennis player Andrey Rublev has not signed up for the new Professional Tennis Player's Association, led by Novak Djokovic and Vasek Pospisil, yet but says he will find out more details about the same from the new group as well as the ATP Tour before he makes a final decision on it.
Rublev was speaking to the media in New York after his straight sets win over Italian Salvatore Caruso when he was asked about his position on the new player body which seems to have divided the tennis world for now.

"For the moment, I didn't sign nothing, because first of all, I have zero education in these kind of questions, in these kind of details.
So I want to, first of all, I want to know exactly all the details what is the plan of them, how they are seeing the things, what exactly they want to do. Then I want to know all details from the ATP, why also some top players they are against this.
I don't know. I just want to know exactly, exactly all the information. Then I want to talk with my team, and then I will make a decision." The 22 year old Russian has not dropped a set in his three matches this week, coming through the draw without much of the attention on him - something he says he is indifferent to.
"To be honest, I mean, about that I won three matches in three sets, I think I was a little bit lucky. Is just happen this way. So there is nothing much to say. Sometimes will happen opposite. Sometimes I will win matches in five sets, like was happening before, but in the end the most important is result.
I'm fine with both ways. When I don't have at all attention and when I have, when people expect something, because in the end I try to focus on myself. I try to focus on the things that I need to do." Andrey Rublev will next take on Italian Matteo Berrettini, the No. 6 seed, for a spot in the quarter-finals. (Image Credit - US Open)
