Nordic derby for the semi-finals. Ruud challenges Rune – Tennis

Norwegian tennis player Casper Ruud advanced to the singles quarterfinals at the Roland Garros Grand Slam tournament. Last year’s Paris finalist defeated Chilean Nicolas Jarry 7:6 (3), 7:5, 7:5 in the round of 16 in the position of seeded four.

In the duel for advancement to the semi-finals, he will play the same way as last year against the sixth seeded Dane Holger Rune, who won over the Argentine Francisco Cerundola after a five-set battle 7:6 (3), 3:6, 6:4, 1:6, 7:6 (10 :7).

In the match with Jarry, Ruud managed the end of sets better, made fewer unforced errors in key moments.

“It was a very difficult match. In the second and third sets, Jarry had a break for good, but I managed to turn around the unfavorable development. I dedicate this victory to my entire team, which supports me,” said Ruud in the first post-match interview with former Spanish tennis player Alex Corretja.

Rune served at 5:4 in the fifth set for victory, but Cerundolo equalized at 5:5 and everything was decided by the final super tiebreak. In his ending, the young Dane had the upper hand.

“It was a breathtaking match. I would like to thank the fans who created a fantastic atmosphere. Francisco played very well, giving elusive shots from the forehand. I wish him only the best in his next career,” said last year’s winner of the Masters 1000 tournament in Paris.
