After battling a tough three-setter in his last three games, Rublev had no intention of doing overtime again in the final. He ran out of blocks, breaking Wesley in the fourth game, and charging for the first set did not leave a point behind his first serve.

It appeared that Wesley could have done little as the world number 7 continued to produce an astonishing level in the second set. Rublev broke through in the opening game, but the Czechs showed a real fight to retrieve it for 3-3, trying to come back into the match to pump up the happy crowd.

Rublev immediately responded by breaking again and tackling a combination of Russian power and consistency to seal a comfortable victory as two-time ATP Tour title winner Wesley.

The win meant Rublev’s semifinal loss to Felix Auger-Aliassim in Rotterdam was his only singles defeat in three tournaments in February. The Dubai title is Russia’s 10th title on the ATP Tour and extends their match record to 10–2 in 2022.
