Hamburg's 1-0 win over Borussia Monchengladbach at the weekend was their third victory in four games and Rudnevs is confident that the team are now set up to keep winning.
"We are delighted that our work was finally rewarded," Bundesliga.de quotes Rudnevs as saying. "We really give everything during the week and then on the weekend to succeed. Unfortunately, this has not always worked in the past.
"I can only say that success is based on hard work - training, training and training again.
"We are in top shape. The coach has set us perfectly. We have a lot of fun and just love to play football."
Hamburg are currently sixth in the Bundesliga, four points behind Eintracht Frankfurt in fourth.
