He was more bothered by the bad language they used towards him!
He did not start this crazy war, he is simply a Russian who is against the war.
Big respect Rublev!
Yes, no war.
Ukraine should stop attacking donets and cremia. Their people have the right to choose and they choose to go back to and united States of Russia Federation.
@Vjetar That's not a nice name to call those people in Iraq, shame on you.
America who started the war. Get it right
That man has class he handled that better then a lot of other people would have
@Senad Spahicc yes I know and that's what I'm speaking on, others would not have taken the words or the flag being flown in their face lightly, waving the flag behind him was meant to be an insult towards him as well as the words spoken
Better *THAN, not THEN
He handled better than the azz holes doing it.
Probably because a lot of other people are just sick of hearing politicians cry about Ukraine every other day, and constantly being told to care more about it than their home.
We're all just people in the end. He showed more of his humanity than most
@Denysyes they did swear for no reason. This guy Didnt attack ukraine
Libya, Syria, Yemen, Afghanistan, Vietnam, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and every conflict has happened.
Just don't be duplicitous
@Denys they did tho what did he ever do to them
@Denys he isn’t the one attacking there country is he now ? They have no reason to hold any grudges against the dude.
@Ali Razithey didn't swear him for no reason tho
Should we blame all Americans for the million lives lost in Iraq?
@Connaeris understandable? What??
The US has never gone a decade without war since it was founded. The longest year without war is only 5 years during the Great Depression.
@Akash Murukesh Yeh well done, and that was at the hands of Islamic war lords and Islamic sectarianism.
@Magnetosphere bro around a million lives were lost in the first 5 yrs
@Akash Murukesh They didn’t kill hundreds of thousands, it was more like tens of thousands.
You can see he's a nice guy.
Pure class, the writing on the camera moment will certainly be a reminder of this time period
He's more mature than 99% of the politicians nowadays.
@No name yes!
That's not hard
Guy was a class act. He didn't like the heckling, not the flag. Smh at some people. They actually think this Russian tennis player makes warctime decisions. Lol
No one thinks he makes the decision's but there are a lot of russian sports and pop stars that publicly support the war.
But it's nice to see there are at least some Russians that can think for themselves.
We need more level headed leaders like this man!
He’s not a government decision maker he’s a tennis player. We know the difference between a government and its citizens. He’s a class act
@Alex Speleers that’s ridiculous
@KonanTheBarbarian that's not ironic at all. Both Israel and Ukraine are defending themselves against genocidal monsters
Dude is all class
I don’t remember Americans athletes being treated like this for their country crimes!!
He did not mind the flag, he did not appreciate the bad language towards him. He is the nicest guy and does not deserve this.
@Tom Janssen definitely made it more interesting. 😎
It's a shame we haven't see any Yemen flag or Palestinian flag or money and weapons send to Armenia.
@Rihan_Yogibear ok and? What's the problem with it?
But Ukraine supports Israel 😂
Mad respect for this man!
We need more Rublevs
@Colton Russo what
@Іван Боровик what
@Colton Russothats why they choose huilo more than 20 years?
That’s like 90% of Russia bro
Of all people, Rublev did not deserve to be name called. He is one of the nicest, most polite players in the circuit.extremism in any capacity should be nipped in the bud.
@LucasJRice russia is not a criminal country and war has another to do with politics
To everybody bringing up politics this war is beyond politics. Russia is a criminal country now, however this man does not deserve to be insulted.
Says a lot about the other sides supporters.
Shoutouts to him for not retaliating like the people shouting swears.
So now it’s free to display the Palestinian flag? Or the Afghan flag? Or the Iraqi flag? Or the Lybian flag?
"Let's disrespect a Russian tennis player because their government invaded Ukraine!"
@Gino Lorenzo I believe you’re the one not so smart.
“Because putin will definitely care and stop the war woohoo !
People are harassing random Jewish people on streets and think that "palestine is free"
@Gee Gee yeah, let's believe russian mainstream media instead lmaoo
He's just a tennis player... their flag doesn't bother him and shouldn't.. but this is what real hatred looks like and what love looks like as well!
Hope that there are more souls like him.
A brave man not doing anything to stop his government
So much respect for the way Rublev handled this.
@Superspeeddirt 98 Bro has left the Building.
@Buddy Ogün bro did you watch the video?
@Buddy Ogün he did not
I remember that. Classy move
God bless him!
When the US and UK invaded Iraq, I don't remember their players getting the same treatment and banned, how do tennis players control their Govs actions? Shows how thick people are.
@Triola so Russia was shelling Donbas for 9 years? Your saying Russia was shelling Donbas for 9 years and they’re the ones who killed the 15,000 people in the Donbas area since 2014? Just think about what your saying for a minute? Take your time and think about it.
@Icarium it was Russia who was shelling people all these 9 years
@Robin Hood War is not fcking "politics".
And we actually voted for those people in fair elections too, and reelected them. So we had more of a hand in it than any regular Russian or Ukrainian citizen had in this
Respect. This is why athlete need to carry themselves properly
And a pen... Fair play to him.. class from start to finish
Class act... He wasn't bothered by the flag and addressed the issue respectfully and without escalating it. I liked Rublev before for how he played and now I like him even more.
@bluerocker27 You know what, I ain't discussing. You do you
@TheChosenOne in the video he’s complaining and it’s clear as day
@TheChosenOne read my original comment and stop making up a narrative … where have I ever mentioned a flag ???? I said he was complaining and he was … absolutely ridiculous and desperate to make up what I said
@bluerocker27 you literally did lmao
The original comment was "He wasn't even bothered by the flag."
Your answer was "Didn't you see the video? He was bothered by it"
Stop talking nonsense.
@TheChosenOne I never said anything about a flag … I said in the video he complained and he did … end of sentence
such a great guy!
True Humble Man.👍
Major respect to this guy. He didn't criticised the guys that's verbally abused him he just want to stop the abuse. 100% respect to you
That was disrespectful! How did they allow this kind of disrespect to a player?
@Cxar71 didn't you watch the clip? The problem here is about insulting a player solely because of his nationality. He has been openly anti war since it started. He even said, he is ok with the flag and complained about being insulted which is just stupid and disrespectful of the people behind him.
I love Rublev. 😢
Rublev is a good guy no doubt
@Shawn Their name makes slightly more sense, after all, it does take one to know one. 🤔
@Incel Detector you must be an incel mad at the world
u must be his friend or something
Proud to be Russia
Tennis is not for everyone, we need to improve audience's quality
I wouldn’t recommend staying in any buildings that have more then one floor. Ya never know when you might “slip” and fall out an open window!
"Fans harass player so umpire ask him wether he wants those scummbags to be kicked out" - that sould be accurate video title.
when umpire is actually a legit...
I LOVE this guy. It’s not his fault. He handled that very well.
@Dejan Stoimenovski The answer is the same my friend. PUTIN. Russian people don’t fear it. It’s Putin. Rublev showed it here by the way he handled this situation.
@David Brackett I didn't asked about Putin. Russia has huge concerns about Ukraine in NATO, or do you maybe expect that Russia dies along Putin.
So why is Russia fearing NATO at their doorstep, do you know?
@David Brackett and who's fault is it that Russia sees Ukraine joining NATO as the biggest threat for their own security?
@5 Star Reviews Putin is at fault for invading Ukraine 100%. He is the leader of where Rublev is from obviously. There’s absolutely no need to get aggressive on a Clip-Share comment like you are with me. You talk about aggression let me ask you Who is the aggressor you or me?
He‘s a great sportsman
Rublev behaved incredibly and earned my respect. Those holding the Ukraine flag exposed their idiocy...
@Calom that is but half the story. Politics is way way more complicated than that
Coming soon near you
Handled it like a champ
What a man 👏
they showed what kind of pigs they are, he showed what kind of person he is
@Edgeemer buddy I am from Ukraine. Do you even hear the nonsense you’re saying? Can you imagine your country wherever you lived invaded another country and someone just told you to move out of your home that you’ve lived your whole life or at least many years. Think what you saying before you say something stupid
@Bohdan and he has no possibility to move his family out. Of course, the government. How many Putins are fighting against Ukraine? Or that it is "we are not in politics" russians?
Average Ukrainian right there
@Tanja Zakurday в палату бегом!
He is the perfect man I'm proud of you brother
Respect for this man.
I have never seen someone gain my respect so fast🙏
This guy has earned my respect so hard. Not only because of this situation, no, because he's one of the nicest players out there and he proved that many times before.
We love Russia either way
Just because you belong to a country does not mean you support all the choices they make…..and it’s not like you can say “well I just won’t support this business anymore…” mad respect bro
Rubkev is a great fellow. He deserves all respect
Slava Ukraini 🇺🇦💙
I respect the man and what hes doing however you just got that camera man fired for ruining his lens 😂😂
Love this player 🥺
Yes always seem good guy
SLAVA UKRAINE 🇺🇦 AND UKRAINIANS AND THEIR BRAVE AND FEARLESS ARMY . God Bless And We The People Of The World 🌎 Praying For You Guys For Glory. 🙏🙏🙏🙏
Rublev is nice guy , nice soul 👍
This guys got more maturity than the whole of america
@Creg Cune will never happen due to there severe case of exceptionalism
U never lived in america.
@Creg Cune Even better if random people didn’t assume your nationality based on absolutely nothing …. Didn’t know America was in the middle of Canada
@bluerocker27 itf be nice if americans could even compute what bias is
Yunno that all you ever see is political America right? If you actually got to know an American you’d fine then a whole lot different.
We should unite as 1 brothers and sisters not because of different nations but because of humanity regardless of those crap politicians. We know right and wrong give and take. God bless us.
I Support Russia
Prowokacja. Respect Rublev
Love Rublev and I am of Ukrainian heritage. This black and white thinking on both sides of ‘all Russians are bad’ or ‘all Ukrainians are bad’ is ridiculous, idiotic and not helping anything.
It’s only on one side
Obviously most citizens of both countries don't want war. The people starting the wars never end up fighting them.
"Sir that camera lens costs $12,000"
Respect for this man
It is really hard to tell publicly, how you feel about the war when you are a famous russian and fuel for their propaganda. I have nothing but respect for Rublev on how he handles it.
What he said was not anti russia it was anti war
@Flap Drol ofc but media and stupid fans harassing players to "speak out"
In my opinion he doesnt have to publicly say how he feels about the war.
That is how you fight evil. Props to that tennis player👍
@mrkv4kaye activist bruda. Go and do all that please.
He's a player and his job is to play, he doesn't need to put his foot into all the stuff going outside his sport and bring problems to himself and his family, and if that's selfish then so may it be.
What? You fight evil by tolerating it? How does that make any sense?
Respect to him 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾
Give that man the respect he deserves.
"Damn, my camera v_v"
Deep respect 🙏 👏
He has the right to protest..
Love and support rublev♥️💪👍
Why do flags bother them so much? It's not players fault that he is Russian French French Serbian or else🤷🏼♀️ everyone deserves their flag. Sport has nothing to do with war and flags wont stop it either
Respect for Rublev ❣️
@Life uncovered where are you from buddy?
FREEDOM of expression. Hats off to the tennis player
We are all people with no choice and stuck with results from people who can’t do anything but force And manipulate
There was no reason for that. Those spectators should have been thrown out
He’s one of the victims… he’s human tough, given the choice I’m 100% he’d stop this war
This guy's balls are filled with class and covered by steel.
Maybe someone should display Iraq/Afghanistan/Libya/Granada/American Indian flags in front of American players for the wars and killings that evil empire has done!
They wouldn't recognize the flags
Respect!!!! To this athlete
After that “no war please” putin immediately pulled all his units from ukraine and apologised to him personally
@Sam The flag isn't the issue - abusing, harassing & provoking a player during the match is.
@Sam they brought it in specifically against the russian player. that is disrespectful and damaging as they wish to imply he is in support of the war
@Andre de jongh yes big provocators!! 🇷🇺🇷🇺🇷🇺
@Бели Анђео what rules did they actually break? Are people still free?
@Andre de jongh No! Why bring Ukranian flag at match?
Big up Rublev, handled that like a boss.
Viva Russia 🇷🇺
An important lesson for all of us around the world.
It’s not the citizens of ANY country doing the bullshit we all see and read about.
We’re just people that want to make a living and be left the F alone!
@scotland638 when have the Americans, and British ever protested against any of their wars? And you vote for these people.
It's the citizens of Russia not objecting to the war is the problem.
This is their essence - to insult people.
We should keep the
Sports and politics separately…Players shouldn’t be blamed about their government’ wrong actions
@Big Devoe the US were wrong, and so is Russia. Also, it really shows you didn't grow up in a democracy. If you had, you wouldn't want to trade it with anything else (unless you were already rich and powerful)
@Big Devoe Good one.
Politics should be banned from sports, schools, businesses, and everything else they have no business in.
