ATP Masters. Ruud eliminated Rublev to join Djokovic in the final

Norway’s Kasper Ruud, world No. 4, advanced to the Masters final in Turin on Saturday with a 6-2, 6-4 win over Russia’s Andrei Rublev (No. 7) and will face Novak Djokovic for the title on Sunday.

At the age of 23, Rudd, who has played in two Grand Slam finals this year (Roland Garros and the US Open), is making his second appearance at the final tournament, which brings together the eight best players of the season. He was eliminated in the semi-finals last year.

As always, Rublev was explosive from the first exchanges. He won his first white service game and lost only one point in the second. Meanwhile, Rudy found it harder to contain the Russian in his own face-offs, but he beat them to make it 2-2.

And then Rublev suddenly exploded. he dropped eight straight games to the point where he cried into the towel after going 3-0 down in the second set, sending his coach more signs of helplessness and misunderstanding than anger.

Leading 6-2, 4-0, he was finally able to hold his serve, with a strong support from a stunned crowd to see Daniil Medvedev and Stefanos Tsitsipas score so indifferent (a total of 23 unforced errors to 8 for Rudd and 16 wins). is against 17).

As Roode served for the match, Rublyov suddenly found his fist. Surprised to see his rival suddenly become effective again, the Norwegian himself seemed stunned and unable to resist the tide. Rublev thus took Rudy’s serve and broke back for 5-3, then 5-4.

But the younger of the two rallied to calmly win his service game last time out and advance to the final.
