Nadal vs Ruud French Open 2022 Preview

Rafael Nadal, 36, seeks his 22nd Grand Slam title and 14 French Open crown, but Casper Ruud will look to spoil those ambitions.

“I’m just going to try to enjoy it,” Ruud said according to Tennis.com. “I will be the underdog, and I will try to, you know, tonight and tomorrow night dream about great winners and unbelievable rallies, because that’s what it’s going to take if I want to have any chance, and I will need to play my best tennis ever.”

Nadal hasn’t ever lost a French Open final. Ruud said “he has watched all 13 of Nadal’s previous title matches” according to Tennis.com.

“I have a huge respect for him,” Nadal said of Ruud per Tennis.com.

Ruud, the first Norwegian to ever make the French Open final, beat Marin Cilic in four sets 3-6, 6-4, 6-2, 6-2 to advance on Friday, June 3. Ruud came in as the No. 8 seed in the tournament.

“It’s a dream to be able to play a Grand Slam final,” Ruud told the media on Friday.

Nadal, the No. 5 seed, made out of the semifinals after Alexander Zverev conceded Friday’s match due to an ankle injury during a tight contest, which was set for a tie breaker. Nadal described it as “a very tough match” when he talked with the media on Friday.

While Nadal hasn’t been 100% healthy himself with lingering foot injury, he showed he can still play like his dominant self on the clay courts in France. Nadal beat top-ranked rival Novak Djokovic in the quarterfinals before taking on Zverev.

Ruud first beat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga before his semifinal win over Cilic. Though just 23 years old, Ruud already has a 66-16 record on clay courts since 2020, but he expects a difficult match from Nadal, a player who once mentored him.

“There’s been some close sets, 7-6, 7-5, but it always goes his favor — but it’s because we are playing in the academy and I want to be nice to him and give him the [win],” Ruud told the media via ESPN.

Those matches happened at the Rafa Nadal Academy where Ruud learned from the tennis great. The two will meet in competition for the first time ever on Sunday per Tennis.com.

“I’ve been looking up to Rafa,” Ruud said via Tennis.com. “He never complains, he’s a perfect example of how I think you should behave on court: Never give up, never complain.”
