Ruud vs Sousa Prediction:
Casper Ruud is hard to beat in high-level competitions. The Norwegian hasn’t broken through on the sport’s greatest stage, but he’s above mid-tier competitors. Clay courts suit the Norwegian’s game best, and he appears poised to win this event. Joao Sousa’s unbeaten run to the final is surprising. The final will be a step up from his opponents thus far, and the Portuguese may struggle.
Sousa’s week has been great. It’s fantastic to watch him play the tennis he’s known for. Ruud has already defeated Sousa twice, so it’s hard to pick against him here. Ruud should dominate baseline rallies, and his solid serving should strain Sousa. Ruud should win his second championship of the year and shine in the French Open.
Prediction: Casper Ruud will win the match.
