This will be the fifth time the two players have met, the previous four times each won twice. It is worth noting that Berrettini’s two victories were in straight sets, while in the Norwegian’s victories, Ruud had to turn the score around after losing the first set. This will be the second time they meet at the US Open, in the 2020 edition they also met in the quarter-finals.

  • 24/07/2022 Ruud won 2-0 (Ostaad, Clay)
  • 08/05/2021 Berrettini won 2-0 (Madrid, Clay)
  • 19/09/2020 Ruud won 2-1 (Rome, Clay)
  • 05/09/2020 Berrettini won 3-0 (US Open, Hardcourt)

CaspernRuud to win

In previous years Berrettini’s advantage over Ruud was his experience, the Norwegian was still young and lacked more experience. This time Casper is better prepared and in his most successful year. Ruud had a moment of glory just two months ago when he defeated Berrettini in the final in Gstaad to be crowned champion.

After that, they both participated in singles tournaments in Montreal and Cincinnati. In both, the Italian lost in the first round, while the Norwegian at least reached the semi-finals. It will be a very close match, but we predict that it will be Casper Ruud who will advance to the US Open semifinals.

Berrettini US Open Analysis

For the 26-year-old to reach the quarter-finals was more difficult than he expected, as the forecasts were calling for the Italian to win in just a few hours, but his match took five sets and a total of 3 hours and 45 minutes. Berrettini had difficulty giving a good first serve, although he got an important amount of points with the second serve. The Italian must be exhausted because every set was played to the limit. After all, both players had a low average of break points converted.

Ruud US Open Analysis

The Norwegian had a relatively easy crossing, as his opponent Corentin Moutec was the only player above the top 100 in the ATP rankings to qualify for the round of 16. Ruud relied on his first serve, which was very successful, as out of 101 completed serves, he scored 71 points. The only negative for Ruud was that he lost the third set, which prevented him from winning in straight sets.
