Casper Ruud French Open Monte Carlo

In-form ATP ace continues stellar 2021 with third title of the season


Casper Ruud has secured his fourth career ATP title and a third in 2021 by defeating Hugo Gaston in the final of the Swiss Open Gstaad.

The Norwegian overcame the French 20-year-old 6-3, 6-2 for a second title in as many weeks, a second in Switzerland in 2021. All of Ruud’s finals and titles have come on clay

“Well, first of all, to Hugo and your team, congrats on also two very good weeks,” Ruud began hi trophy acceptance speech. “I know you played the final last week also (of a Challenger in Romania) and your first ATP final (today).

“I’m sure you will win, hopefully next time you play one and hopefully we can also play more finals.

“That would be the best thing I think and we can play each other many times in the future. I hope you have a good rest of the year and of course rest of your career.

“I’m sure we’ll see you around. So good job for the week and good luck for everything that comes for you.”

Ruud is currently sitting at a career-high ranking of world No. 14, and will now be ninth in the ATP Race to Turin for the ATP Finals in November.
