The Baseline Player of the Week: Casper Ruud
Published Feb 17, 2020
The 2020 season has seen another first-time winner enter the spotlight. Casper Ruud picked up his first ATP title by beating lucky loser Pedro Sousa in straight sets at the Argentina Open. The Norwegian didn't face a single break point during the match.
The 21-year-old is now the first Norwegian to ever win an ATP title. His father and coach reached a career-high ranking of world No. 39 in 1995, but now his son has passed him, reaching world No. 34.
Ruud is now also the youngest Bueno Aires champion in history, surpassing the previous record-holder, Guillermo Coria in 2004, by one year.
