The Norwegian and current 10th in the world is living an incredible present. After smashing in the San Diego final to Cameron Norrie 6-0 and 6-2, Casper Ruud positioned himself as the top winner so far in ATP tournaments so far this season with five under his belt.
Geneva, Bastad, Gstaad, Kitzbuhel and now San Diego. All 250 titles that put him at the top of 2021, leaving second place to players like Novak Djokovic, Alexander Zverev and Daniil Medvedev, who own four titles for now.
Since that Argentina Open 2020 defeating in the final Pedro Sousa By 6-1 and 6-4, Ruud’s career was a constant upward slope, climbing little by little in the ranking to position himself among the best in the world.
This title in San Diego shows that he is not a simple player of brick dust, but that he is a European that adapts to any surface and imposes its powerful game without any problem.
