Style and personality:
The Norwegian is known for his powerful groundstrokes off both flanks, along with his great court coverage which makes him a tough competitor to beat on any surface. Ruud’s strengths on court are matched by his ice-cool personality, which has earned him the nickname of “The Iceman”.
Casper Ruud’s solid baseline game and fantastically calm temperament under the most intense pressure have earned him 10 ATP singles titles in his career so far. The Norwegian’s favourite surface is clay, winning nine of his 19 titles on the red dirt and reaching back-to-back French Open finals in 2023 and 2023. The Norwegian has also become an A-list hardcourt player, reaching the US Open final in 2022 and winning the San Diego title in 2021.
