Casper Ruud v Dominic Koepfer Head to Head
There have been no matches played previously between Ruud and Koepfer.
Ruud Rushes into the Quarters
After getting an opening round bye, Ruud raced into the last eight with a straight-set win over Tennys Sandgren.
The win, which came in an hour and 24 minutes was Ruud’s 12th of the season on clay and helped him maintain his record of having reached the quarterfinal of every clay court event he has played this season.
It followed Ruud’s appearance at the Madrid Masters semifinal where he had stunned Stefanos Tsitsipas in one of the previous rounds. Here, he came away a 7-5, 6-2 winner, breaking his American opponent three times in the entire match while saving the only break-point he faced in the encounter.
Things went on serve in the opening set till Ruud finally broke Sandgren to love and then served out the set. In the second, once Ruud had got his rhythm, he went 2-0 up and then doubled his advantage with another break in the fifth game.
He squandered three match-points before converting his fourth to move into the last eight.
Koepfer Scrapes Through Another Win
The last time Koepfer made it through two wins in a row on clay was last year in Rome. Since entering the quarterfinal there, Koepfer had featured in eight tournaments on clay in the lead-up to this one in Geneva and not won successive main draw matches.
Till he did that in this competition.
After getting stretched to three sets which included two tiebreakers by Benoit Paire in the first round here, Koepfer required another three sets to get past Feliciano Lopez. And again, there was a tie-breaker in it.
It took the German two hours and 19 minutes to carve out his 7-5, 6-7 (1), 6-3 win and seal his meeting with Ruud. Koepfer was broken twice in the match – in the first set when Lopez levelled things out at 3-3 and in the decider when the Spaniard broke back from 1-3 down.
However, Koepfer found a way back both times to finish off the encounter. Ruud will prove to be a different kettle of fish.
Ruud v Koepfer Prediction and Tip
A straight-set win for Ruud looks most likely with Koepfer’s long times on court in both his first two rounds becoming a source of exhaustion. Plus Ruud’s form has been far superior to his opponent’s anyway.
