Casper Ruud Career
Casper Ruud, a professional tennis player from Norway, was born on December 22, 1998. Ruud is the highest-ranked tennis player from Norway in history thanks to his career-high singles ranking of No. 5, attained on June 13, 2022.
Eight of his nine ATP Tour singles victories—which he has earned—have come on clay surfaces. As of the 2022 French Open, Ruud is the first Norwegian man to have won an ATP singles championship, advanced to a major final, advanced to a Masters 1000 final, and reached the top 10 of the ATP rankings.
He has a career-high world No. 133 ranking in doubles, which he attained after making it to the 2021 Wimbledon Championships quarterfinals.
He defeated Henri Laaksonen, Alexander Bublik, and Cameron Norrie to advance to his fourth Masters 1000 semifinal at the Miami Open. He then won his first match against world No. 4 Alexander Zverev in the quarterfinal. In the semifinals, Ruud defeated Francisco Cerndolo to advance to his first Masters 1000 Final.
He lost in straight sets to 18-year-old Carlos Alcaraz in the championship match. After this outcome, Ruud rose to a career-high position of No. 7 in the world on April 4, 2022.
Ruud was one of five players in the draw at the US Open who had a chance to become the No. 1 player in the world (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 semifinal, he defeated Corentin Moutet, the lucky loser, and 13th seed Matteo Berrettini, the latter in straight sets. He then defeated Karen Khachanov, the 27th seed, to advance to his second major championship game. The winner of the match against third-seeded Carlos Alcaraz will take over as the new World No. 1.
