Ruud beats Berrettini in Gstaad
Casper Ruud beat Matteo Berrettini in the final of the clay-court ATP event in Gstaad on Sunday by scores of 4-6, 7-6 (7/4), and 6-2. He had to come back from being down a set. This was Ruud’s seventh time winning a title, and it was his third this year after his wins in Geneva and Buenos Aires, all of which were on clay.
When asked what the match meant, Ruud said, “Roger Federer is a role model for me and a lot of other players around the world.” The match, which lasted a little over three hours, lasted about three hours. Roger Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka have won a lot of Grand Slams for Switzerland over the past 18 or 19 years. “The fact that they came from such a small country as Norway has inspired people all over the world, including me.
Every part of Switzerland reminds me of where I used to live, which is Norway. The French Open finalist lost the first set, but he came back in the second set to force the world number 15 Italian to a tiebreak. As soon as Berrettini’s serve started to get worse, Ruud took over the game. Ruud lost the first point, but then his forehand started to work, and he won the next five. Because he won the tiebreak 7-4, the number five player in the world will now have to play a third set to decide the winner.
After that, the 2018 champion was broken twice by the 23-year-old Norwegian, who won the final set 6-2. In his first tournament after pulling out of Wimbledon with Covid, Berrettini tried to tie the record of three straight titles. Ruud is ahead in the series by a score of 3-2.
