Our favourite Jordan Thompson vs Casper Ruud predictions

At this point in the ATP schedule 2024, players aren’t playing for huge points, but winning any ATP tournament is a great accomplishment in itself, so we expect fireworks when Thompson and Ruud take the court. With that in mind, let’s take a better look at our predictions for this match:

Thompson to win a set – yes @ 3/4 (1.75)

While Ruud is the favourite in this match, Thompson has been in solid form recently and it all culminated here in Los Cabos. This will be only the third ATP tour final for the Australian and he will give his all to win the first title. Given that he already beat Ruud twice in their four meetings, we can see him at least getting a set here.

Over 20.5 total games @ 3/4 (1.75)

In the four previous H2H duels between Thompson and Ruud, we’ve seen three of them get pushed to maximum number of sets. The only one that didn’t go into maximum sets was their duel at the Australian Open in 2021, but that match ended by Thompson having to retire. So, we can see this match going into three sets and over 20.5 total games.

Los Cabos Open: Can Thompson upset the odds and win his first title?

I’ve introduced this match and my predictions above. But now, it’s time to cover each individual in a little more detail.

Jordan Thompson preview

At the moment, Jordan Thompson is ranked 40th in the APT rankings and that is also the best ranking in his career. Despite being 29 years old, the Australian has never won a title on the ATP tour. In fact, he only reached the final twice, both times in Hertogenosch. So, this might be a unique opportunity for him to lift his first trophy. Thompson enters the final at Los Cabos with an 12-5 record in 2024.
