"It's amazing," said Medvedev, "it sure will be at least one Russian in the semifinals. Three Russians in the quarterfinals is amazing for our sport."

Marat Safin was the last Russian to reach the semi-finals in Melbourne in 2005 and then he also won the title after defeating local Leighton Hewitt.

Medvedev is of course Russia's senior tennis player who has been marked for several years as someone who can win a Grand Slam title, as is Rublev and the big surprise is of course in Kratzev's character.



Rublev and Medvedev, as mentioned, will meet for a Russian derby in the quarterfinals.

"It's going to be a new story, a new game, we'll see how it goes," Rublev said. He has a 3-0 balance against his friend, including a loss in last year's United States Championship quarterfinals. "It is in front of each other to see the reality, to feel the atmosphere, to see how things work or not work, how you feel and can look."



The three Russian tennis players joined one team that won the ATP Cup in Melbourne two weeks ago in what may herald the following after Novak Djokovic's Serbia won the title last year and then he went on to win his eighth title at the Australian Championships.

Medvedev also chose Pargan for Kratzb, who became the first player since Alex Radolesco at the 1996 Wimbledon to reach the Grand Slam quarter-finals in his debut and the lowest ranked in the world (114) reaching this stage in the Australian Championship since 1991. "We are both very happy for Aslan because he trained excellently in the ATP, "said Medvedev," we felt he could do something amazing. Reaching the quarterfinals of your first Grand Slam tournament is something extraordinary and he has not yet said the last word. Let's see what he does in the quarterfinals. "



Rublev added: "Towards the end of last year he had already shown a very high level. I knew he would be even more successful this year and in the end he surprised even me. He won very good players."

Kratzev himself said: "It was a long journey, I put a lot of work into it."

The Russian, who spent most of his childhood in Israel, won three consecutive Challenger titles in the Czech Republic late last year and said: "When you win it gives you confidence, you feel more relaxed on the pitch afterwards."
