Casper Ruud has found his form ahead of the French Open, and he is currently playing in the Geneva Open to get some more confidence before entering the Roland-Garros. He is in the quarterfinals in Geneva. He had also made a semifinal run in the Italian Open, where he lost to the eventual winner, Novak Djokovic.

Ruud is one of the best movers on the clay and has a tremendous forehand, a deadly weapon for the players to face on clay. He would like to make his mark in the French Open with a deep run this season. Ruud is an amazing competitor and has great insight into the game, one of the top guys. Ruud gives his opinions on which of the two between Djokovic and the showstopper Carlos Alcaraz, who recently made his ATP top 10 and is currently ranked number 6 in the world at 19 years of age.

In the talk show with Eurosport, former world number 2, Alex Corretja posed who is currently the best player for the Roland-Garros. Mats Wilder answered :

” What Carlos Alcaraz has done deserves respect, he has won the two tournaments in the hard court and then won two on the clay court. He will be confident but, his confidence won’t help him much in the Roland-Garros. He would still need to play well from the beginning and have a couple of good matches. Novak Djokovic has the best preparation coming into the Roland-Garros. He won in Rome and a week’s rest will do him good.”

Casper Ruud also talked about his expectations going into the French Open 2022, and he also talks about dealing with the third-round exit in the last season. He said: “I was disappointed after being knocked out by Davidovich Fokina, as it was a big goal of mine to reach the quarterfinals. My father told me that the preparation will pay off in one way or the next week.”

Ruud would also like to enter the French Open 2022 with a title as it would give a massive confidence boost to the young Norwegian as he gears up for a good run at Roland-Garros.
