Tennis, Sports | Casper Ruud in the lead in the third round of the Australian Open

Ruud has got off to a good start in the third round against Radu Albot from Moldova in the tennis tournament Australia.

The Norwegian started the match by serving and easily took the first game. He followed up by breaking Albot’s serve twice in the first set, winning it 6-1 and securing the lead early in the match.

The 22-year-old had good control in the first set, which was completed in 27 minutes.

Ruud has not previously played in the third round of the Australian Open, and has never advanced to a fourth round of a Grand Slam tournament in his career.

In the first round, he knocked out Australian Jordan Thompson, while his won over American Tommy Paul in the second round on Thursday.

Ruud is now fighting for 320,000 Australian dollars, equivalent to 2.1 million Norwegian kroner, for fourth place. He has never recorded such a large amount in one tournament.

The match in Melbourne is played for empty stands because the entire state of Victoria is closed for five days. The reason is an outbreak of quarantine at a quarantine hotel at Melbourne Airport.
