Ruud Hopes To End Breakthrough Season In Turin

Casper Ruud, who has reached a career-high ranking of 1o, has won four titles this year, all on clay, and headed to the Laver Cup last weekend with a 16-3 record from his last 19 completed matches.

Since Wimbledon, the Norwegian went on a winning spree, winning three consecutive titles at the Swedish Open, Swiss Open and the Austrian Open all on clay.

What was  more heartening for Ruud will be that he has also hit some good form on the North American hard courts recently. He was a quarterfinalist in Toronto and repeated the fate the following week in Cincinnati defeating Reilly Opelka and Diego Schwartzman along the way.

However, it was a disappointing US Open for him with a second round loss against Dutch qualifier Botic van de Zandschulp who went on to make the final eight.

Ruud will take heart from a resounding win against Reilly Opelka again last weekend at the Laver Cup on an indoor hard court and will be looking for a good run on the hard and indoor swing as he makes strides towards qualifying for the year end ATP Tour Finals in Turin.

Murray Looking To Continue Attempts To be a Force Again

Former world number one and three time major champion (including US Open 2012) , Andy Murray has had a rough road back on the tour since the hip surgeries of 2017 and thereafter, including a farewell message at the Australian Open couple years ago, only to return like the fighter he is.

Murray continued his comeback trail on the North American hard courts with a  second round loss to Wimbledon semi-finalist Hubert Hurkacz in Cincinnati and another second round loss to Frances Tiafoe in Winston Salem. He was  up against world number three Stefanos Tsitsipas in the opening round of the US Open and although the Scot put up a phenomenal performance, he fell just short in five sets.

The Briton has talked about still aiming to be in the top ten after he lost in Metz last weekend in the quarter-finals to eventual champion Hubert Hurkacz. However, Murray did well to record wins against Ugo Humbert and Vasek Pospisil.

Scheduled to play veteran Kei Nishikori in the opener here, Murray played Lucky Loser American Denis Kudla after Nishikor withdrew from the opening round clash.

It was a clinical Murray  win, as he will be looking to up the ante here on and make his presence felt more at the San Diego tournament and on the circuit in general.

Ruud v Murray Prediction and Tip

This makes for an exciting battle between the legend Murray striving hard to make it a successful comeback and Ruud who has been on a strong run and hoping to continue making strides towards the Turin ATP Tour Finals.

Expect a tight contest with Murray continuing his gritty form before Ruud eventually clinches it ever so narrowly in a deciding set
