Tennis top talent Casper Ruud wins ATP tournament Gstaad for the second year in a row

Casper Ruud has won the ATP tournament in Gstaad, Switzerland for the second year in a row. The Norwegian as 1st seed won in 3 sets against Matteo Berrettini from Italy, the number 2 of the seeding list: 4-6 7-6 (4) 6-2.

For the 23-year-old Norwegian, the world number 5, it was his 3rd title of this season. Ruud previously won the clay tournaments in Buenos Aires and Geneva. He reached the final at Roland Garros, losing to Rafael Nadal.

Working on trust in Gstaad
Ruud recovered well on the gravel of Gstaad after the lost 1st set and took the 2nd in the tiebreak. He finished it on his 2nd set point.

In the deciding set, the Norwegian took a comfortable 4-1 lead through breaks in the 3rd and 5th game. He then converted his first game point. Berrettini hit back Ruud’s serve, but the ball ended up behind the line.

Geen 3e seizonstitel Berrettini
Berrettini could also have taken his 3rd title of this year. The 26-year-old Italian was already the best at the Stuttgart and Queen’s grass tournaments. The number 15 in the world was therefore considered an outsider for the title at Wimbledon, but he withdrew in London due to a positive corona test.
