Kukushkin - Rublev
First two tournaments that Rublev played on hard court since he played Hamburg final on clay ended in the starting round as he was defeated in Washington and Montreal.
He passed first round of qualifications for Cincinnati as Tonic retired before start of the match.
He has poor record agaisnt Kukushkin as he is down 1-4 in h2h matches with Kukushkin celebrating in last three. All of those matches were played in indoor surface so this will be something new in their clash.
Kukushkin has been playing way more better and consistent like in Los Cabos where he got to quarterfinals.
Kukushkin is in obviously is solid form so he is logical pick for tonight
