Casper Ruud vs Sebastian Ofner – Match Predictions

Over 19.5 Games

Despite some tough encounters against top-5 opponents in the past, Ofner’s improved gameplay indicates that he is moving in the right direction and making positive progress. As he faces Casper Ruud, the Austrian will undoubtedly be looking to continue his momentum and present a challenging test for the top seed. He has dug deep and will force the issue against Ruud. Based on this, we do not expect Ruud to walk over him in this battle and there should be at least 19.5 games to find a victor.

2-0 to Casper Ruud

With much preparation, Ruud found it hard to get going in Wimbledon. With his attention returning to the red surface, Alexander Shevchenko found out why the Norwegian is a different beast on clay courts. The French Open finalist has the pedigree to triumph and he should manage it in straight sets. Offner will not make it easy but we do not see the Austrian stealing a set away from Ruud despite his impressive seven-match winning streak.
