Casper Ruud makes his fans happy during this tournament. He has not had problems and has not made a lot of mistakes in the previous stages. Ruud easily defeated Matteo Berrettini in the quarter-final and showed confident play against Karen Khachanov in the semi-final.
Carlos Alcaraz Garfia started this tournament well, but his play in the last three stages was disappointing. He had a close match against Cilic and Tiafoe. In the quarter-final match against Jannik Sinner, the Spanish tennis player was supposed to win four remaining games in each of his winning sets to come back. Also, he was defeated by Ruud in the last H2H match with a 2-0 score. His victory is not safe in this final. I believe that Asian handicap (+1.5) sets on Ruud is the best outcome in this match.
