Casper Ruud vs Marin Cilic Prediction:
Ruud will be regarded as the favorite to win the match based on his recent clay results and his current form. On the red dirt, the Norwegian has won seven of his eight career titles. Cilic, on the other hand, has been a giant killer in this year’s French Open, defeating two top-10 players. As a result, the lanky Croat cannot be dismissed. Ruud is a strong baseliner with a forehand that has a lot of topspin, which will help him against Cilic.
Cilic’s service has always been his strongest suit, and after serving 33 aces against Rublev, he’ll be hoping for a lot more against Ruud. This fortnight, the Croat’s cross-court forehands have been his biggest differentiator. Both players have been in excellent form thus far in the competition, and the match promises to be a close one. While Cilic is capable of putting up a fight, Ruud’s claycourt skill may just be enough to get him over the finish line.
Prediction: Ruud will win the match.
