A big fourth-round contest is coming up between Fritz and Ruud at the French Open. That means I’ve got some tennis predictions today to share with you ahead of the match – as discussed below.

Our favourite Taylor Fritz vs Casper Ruud predictions

Finally, we have the kind of matches we’ve all wanted to see at the 2024 French Open. Here we have the 12th seed, Fritz, facing the 7th seed, Ruud, in what promises to be quite a showdown. They’ve both played great tennis to reach the fourth round, but who has the best chance of moving onto the quarter-finals? Let me show you.

Ruud -3.5 games handicap @ 7/10 (1.70)

With the way that Ruud plays, he’s always going to put pressure on the opponent’s service games. This will make it tough for Fritz to hold serve easily and keep the scoreboard moving. Subsequently, I think it’s very possible for there to be at least 3.5 games between the two when all is said and done.

Ruud -1.5 sets handicap @ 3/4 (1.75)

If I had to give a set betting prediction for this match, I’d say that Ruud will win in either straight sets or four sets. Due to their game styles and contrasting abilities on clay, I just cannot see how Fritz pushes Ruud too close, which is why this market is a good choice.

Taylor Fritz vs Casper Ruud odds

Looking at the most recent odds for Fritz vs Ruud – Fritz has a 34.80% probability of victory while the chance for Ruud is 71.40%.

Top seeds set for a clay court battle in round four of the French Open

Predictions aside, let’s take a closer look at how things are shaping up for these guys ahead of this round-four clash.

Taylor Fritz preview

Fritz has shown us all what he can do on the clay in 2024 – reaching the semis of the Madrid Open and producing some big wins on this surface in general. And he has produced some great wins in the opening three rounds of Roland Garros so far. Then again, when you look at his game compared to Ruud’s on clay, he’s going to be up against it here.

Casper Ruud preview

Casper Ruud has made the finals of Roland Garros twice, so we all know how good he is on the clay. He has beaten two solid clay court players to reach round four in the form of Davidovich Fokina and Etcheverry, but he’s had to battle for those wins. Then again, he’s young and very fit, so he will no doubt recover in time for this one.

Fritz vs Ruud head to head

Fritz and Ruud have only played once in the past. It’s Ruud who came through in that encounter, too, meaning that he holds a 1-0 head-to-head record against the American. Additionally, that match was played on indoor hard, yet on the clay, it’s definitely a better set-up for Ruud.
