Casper Ruud Career

Casper Ruud, a Norwegian professional tennis player, was born on December 22, 1998. Ruud is the highest ranked Norwegian tennis player in history thanks to his career ranking of No. 5 in singles, reached on June 13, 2022.

Eight of his nine ATP Tour singles victories — which he has won — have come on clay surfaces. At the 2022 French Open, Ruud is the first Norwegian to have won an ATP singles championship, advanced to a major final, advanced to a Masters 1000 final and reached the top 10 in the ATP rankings.

He has a career-high world No. 133 in doubles, which he reached after reaching the quarter-finals of the 2021 Wimbledon Championships.

He beat Henri Laaksonen, Alexander Bublik and Cameron Norrie to advance to his fourth Masters 1000 semi-final at the Miami Open. He then won his first match against world No. 4 Alexander Zverev in the quarter-finals. In the semi-finals, Ruud beat Francisco Cerndolo to advance to his first Masters 1000 final.

He lost in straight sets to 18-year-old Carlos Alcaraz in the league match. After this result, Ruud rose to the peak of his career as world No. 7 on April 4, 2022.

Ruud was one of five players in the US Open draw who had a chance of becoming the world No. 1 player (the others being Medvedev, Tsitsipas, Nadal and Alcaraz).

He beat Kyle Edmund, Tim van Rijthoven and Tommy Paul to advance to the fourth round; their third-round match lasted nearly four and a half hours and five sets.

Then, to reach his second major semi-final, he beat lucky loser Corentin Moutet and 13th seed Matteo Berrettini, the latter in straight sets. He then defeated 27th seeded Karen Khachanov to advance to his second major league match. The winner of the match against third-seeded Carlos Alcaraz will become the new world number 1.
