The final against Nadal was not the first new experience for Ruud this fortnight in Paris. He had never previously been past the fourth round at a Grand Slam.
A dominant championship match performance sealed Rafael Nadal’s record-extending 22nd Grand Slam title at Roland Garros against eighth seed Casper Ruud, who has played in Kungens Kanna ten years ago.
Ruud became the first Norwegian man to reach a Grand Slam final. His run bumps the Norwegian to a career-high No. 6 in the ATP Rankings.
