Here are the Sinner vs Rublev live streaming details, how to watch the Barcelona Open 2021 live in India and our match preview.
Opening up the singles quarter-finals for the Barcelona Open 2021, Russia's rising star Andrey Rublev will lock horns with Italian youngster Jannik Sinner. With World Novak Djokovic, Daniil Medvedev, Dominic Thiem and Alexander Zverev sitting out the series for various reasons, Rublev is seeded third in the tournament behind Rafael Nadal and Stefanos Tsitsipas. To say that Rublev is having a tremendous year would be an understatement, for the 23-year old is coming into this tournament off of title wins at the ATP Cup and ATP Rotterdam. He was also the runner-up at last week's Monte Carlo Masters and is 24-5 in 2021.
Having defeated Sinner's compatriot Federico Gaio in straight sets in Round 2 of the tournament and followed it up with a slightly less impressive 6-4, 6-7, 6-4 win over local star Albert Ramos-Viñolas, Sinner will be looking forward to setting up a possible semi-final clash against Tsitsipas and avenge his Monte Carlo loss. However, Rublev will face a tough opponent in Jannik Sinner - the runner-up of the recently concluded Maimi Open. At 15-6 this year, the 19-year-old has not been very consistent in 2021 but will be confident after straight-set wins over Gerasimov and the much higher-ranked Roberto Bautista Agut at Barcelona.
