Ruud got hot

Seeded number 1 in Gstaad, Casper Ruud needed two decisive games to get the better of Jaume Munar and reach the last four.

Casper Ruud had to work hard but will see the semi-finals in Gstaad. The Norwegian, seeded number 1 in the Swiss station, had many difficulties to get the better of Jaume Munar. The world number 5, after a balanced start to the match, seized his chance to take the service of the Spaniard and lead four games to one. Jaume Munar reacted immediately, winning three games in a row to come back level with Casper Ruud. The 63rd in the world had two opportunities to take the lead but without success and a decisive game was inevitable. Taking the advantage very early on, the Norwegian left nothing for his opponent to take the lead. The second round saw a similar scenario. Indeed, it was Casper Ruud who made the break first.

But Jaume Munar, in a three-game winning streak, was able to erase his late service game and put the world No. 5 back under pressure. The Spaniard then had two opportunities to come back to one set everywhere but failed to convert them. After a last break point for Casper Ruud, it was a second decisive game that allowed the two players to decide. If, after losing his first point on serve, Jaume Munar was able to return to contact, a series of four rallies won in a row allowed Casper Ruud to widen a definitive gap. The second match point was good for the Norwegian (7-6, 7-6 in 2h18′)who will face Albert Ramos-Viñolas, seeded number 4, or Nicolas Jarry this Saturday for a place in the final.
