It will be Ruud’s ninth match since February 22, less than 10 days. Fatigue seems to be creeping up, especially given the fact his last two matches were three-set affairs. On the other hand, De Minaur’s early exit in Los Cabos seems to be a lucky omen in hindsight. The Australian’s fitness got a further boost with Draper retiring from their semi-final fixture. With De Minaur winning their only H2H match on hard courts, we are backing the now 9th-ranked star to clinch the title.

As the two lock horns, we believe the trend will continue and a deciding set will be needed. Given De Minaur’s winning record against Ruud on hard courts and the Australian’s less tiring route to the final, we expect him to claim a 2-1 victory
