Alcaraz Vs Ruud: Odds & Prediction
Carlos Alcaraz -120
Casper Ruud -115
Pick: Carlos Alcaraz to win in four sets
Both players will aim for their maiden Grand Slam title as well as the glorious World No. 1 spot on Sunday.
Alcaraz is on a roller-coaster securing three consecutive five-set victories in the tournament. He is particularly skilled on the baseline and is able to hit a powerful forehand from anywhere on the court. However, he needs to use more effective tactics to avoid choking in close matches. The Spanish teen moves too fast.
Ruud, on the other hand, has more professional experience compared to Alcaraz. He has nine titles in his kit while Alcaraz has five. However, the Spanish can gain confidence from their head-to-head stat, and his higher World rank of 4th than his opponent’s rank of 7th.
Ruud follows a bit slower but consistent gameplay. Ruud has more accomplishments on clay courts. Eight of his nine singles titles came on clay surfaces. He will have the benefit of playing in a Grand Slam final before. Ruud would definitely be a tough opponent to beat. However, Alcaraz, the in-form youngster is expected to claim the trophy at the end.
