Ruud vs Sonego: prediction for the Roland Garros match
Casper Ruud is in good form - the Norwegian tennis player has recently reached the semifinals of the Italian Open and won the tournament in Geneva. Ruud's confident start at the French Open didn't surprise anyone. In his opener, Ruud celebrated success over Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (6-7, 7-6, 6-2, 7-6). In the second match, the Norwegian prevailed over Emil Ruusuvuori (6-3, 6-4, 6-2).
Lorenzo Sonego has been unimpressive this year. He hasn't delivered memorable performances neither on hard, nor on clay courts. Nevertheless, the Italian was off to a good start at the French Open. He ousted Peter Gojowczyk (6-2, 6-2, 6-1) before defeating the Portuguese Joao Souza in the second round (7-6, 6-3, 6-4).
Ruud has played 6 tie-breaks in his last 5 matches.
In 3 of the last 5 matches of Sonego, more than 9 games were played in the first set.
Ruud made a few mistakes in the first match, but played almost perfectly against Ruusuvuori. We believe he will get another confident victory today and progress to the next round.
Our prediction - handicap (-6) to Ruud
Sonego is in poor shape, and we doubt he can put up a fight against Ruud, who has gained momentum. The Norwegian athlete won the previous match in straight sets, and we predict the same result here.
