(Stefanos Tsitsipas – Casper Road 6-2, 6-2) Stefanos Tsitsipas (24) was too strong for Casper Road (24) in Abu Dhabi.
Things obviously didn’t turn out as I would have hoped, but that’s how it happens sometimes. I did my best. He said that this was the first match after a difficult period for me Rod to the public after the loss.
Rudd was pre-qualified for that VG + Sport broadcast the semi-finalsbut still he was given a very difficult task.
The Greek player started at a tremendous pace and delivered the occasional tennis that made the crowd brag early in the match.
The first match ended with a fracture of Tsitsipas Ruud.
– That’s one of the best things I’ve seen from Tsitsipas in a long time, said VG commentator Sverre Krogh Sundbø midway through the first set, which Tsitsipas eventually won 6-2.
Ruud struggled on the hard court, but managed to get back into the match early in the second set. He broke Rod Tsitsipas and won the first point. But Tsitsipas showed then that it was never a question of who would play in the final.
After just over an hour and 20 minutes it was all over when Tsitsipas served up the win.
– It happened in an alarmingly short time, said commentator Krug Sundbo as the match ball went in.
As the two thank each other for the match, he overhears Rudd thanking his opponent for the tennis lesson.
This was the first warm-up match for Rudd’s part towards a new season just before Christmas. Then she waits for a warm-up tournament in Australia before getting serious with the Australian Open.
