Casper Ruud clinches Barcelona Open title with win over Stefanos Tsitsipas

Posted : 21 April 2024

Casper Ruud secured a significant victory by defeating Stefanos Tsitsipas 7-5, 6-3 in the Barcelona Open final on Sunday, avenging his loss to the Greek player in the Monte Carlo Masters final just a week earlier. This win marks the biggest trophy of Ruud's career, elevating him to his 11th career triumph and his first at a 500 level event.


Expressing his elation, Ruud emphasized the significance of the victory, highlighting it as his most substantial title to date. Despite a shaky start, he rallied in both sets to secure the win, attributing his success to recent improvements in his game and his ability to maintain composure under pressure.


In a match where Tsitsipas initially took the lead, Ruud displayed resilience, breaking back in the sixth game of the first set with a well-executed passing shot. He capitalized on opportunities, clinching crucial points to maintain his momentum and ultimately securing the first set with a break.


Maintaining his dominance in the second set, Ruud capitalized on Tsitsipas's errors and secured an early break, further solidifying his advantage. Despite Tsitsipas's efforts to stage a comeback, Ruud's consistent energy and focus proved too much to overcome, leading to his victory and the end of Tsitsipas's 10-match winning streak.
