To keep his spot in the ATP rankings, the world number four must get to the final rounds. Caper Ruud must demonstrate that he is a top player and that clay is one of his favorite courts against Lorenzo Musseti.
These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.
Casper Ruud vs Lorenzo Musetti – Match Predictions
Get the best tennis predictions for Casper Ruud vs Lorenzo Musetti at the Bastad Open 2023.
Set 1: 9 or 10 Games
Every set that Ruud played in the two previous rounds was around 9 or 10 games. The first set Musetti played in rounds 1 and 2 ended with 9 and 10 wins respectively.
The last 4 sets in which Musetti and Ruud faced each other ended 6-4. Taking all that data into account, I think there will be more than 9 or 10 wins in the first set of this duel.
Ruud to Win
Both players now have a comparable winning record. However, 75% of Ruud’s triumphs came on clay, compared to only half of Mussetti’s.
Casper Ruud has more than twice as many wins as Lorenzo Musetti when each player’s clay-court record is taken into account. Based on that research, I believe the Norwegian player will proceed to the next round.

Check out each player’s preview and other tennis match predictions for the 2023 Bastad Open.
The Norwegian tennis player is still unable to overcome performance slumps. It’s incredible how Ruud can make the Roland Garros final and then lose in the third round at Wimbledon to a player ranked below the top 100.
Casper is looking for an upset after having his greatest clay-court performance of the season. A result that will make him forget about his poor showing in London.
Musetti has made significant development in her professional career during the last few years. The current season has not been very good for him, which has hampered his ascension up the ATP rankings.
This season, she won 24 matches and lost 16, for a success record of 60%. She nearly made the finals of the Australian Challenger in January this year. He recently competed in Wimbledon, where he was defeated in the third round by Polish Hubert Hurkacz.
