Casper Ruud vs Marin Cilic: Preview

Casper Ruud

Casper Ruud has been in phenomenal form these past few weeks. He made it to the semifinals of the Italian Open, where he lost to Novak Djokovic, then went to Geneva to successfully defend his title on the clay just days before the commencement of the French Open 2022. He had a stellar run in Paris as he plays his first Grand Slam semifinals at Stade Roland Garros. He was taken to the fifth by Lorenzo Sonego, his other wins were cleaner and Ruud will aim for a spot in the final against a resurgent Marin Cilic.

Cilic had a mediocre clay season including the second-round losses in the Monte-Carlo Masters, Estoril Open, and the Mutua Madrid Open. He then jumped the gun at the French Open as he demolished the world number 2, Daniil Medvedev in the fourth round. Cilic also edged out Andrey Rublev in a five-set thriller in the quarterfinals to become only the fifth active player to have made at least a semifinal appearance at all Grand Slams. Cilic is turning back the clocks as the former US Open Champion aims for glory in the red dirt.

Casper Ruud vs Marin Cilic: Head-to-Head

Marin Cilic

Casper Ruud and Marin Cilic have faced each other twice before their scheduled semifinal meeting in Paris. Ruud leads their head-to-head score 2-0. One of the matches was played on the hardcourt and the other was a clay-court match. Though Cilic has never been able to defeat Ruud, he could choose to spoil the biggest moment of the Norwegian’s career and get on the head-to-head scoreboard against Ruud.

Casper Ruud vs Marin Cilic: Prediction

Casper Ruud

Casper Ruud is a slight favorite going into the semifinal against Cilic. He is a clay-court specialist and even though he had struggled at the start of the season, he has really got going and he would like to make his maiden Grand Slam final at the French Open 2022. Cilic however has made two upsets in a row and it wouldn’t be too surprising if he manages to upstage the Norwegian. Expect a gripping match as the two explosive players lock horns at the Phillipe-Chatrier.

Prediction: Casper Ruud to win in four sets.
