Biography

Overview

Ruud is set to make his Laver Cup debut in Boston, and is the highest ranked Norwegian in ATP history, surpassing his father, Christian, who is now his coach. The former world No.1 ranked junior began his ascent up the ATP rankings in 2017 and two years later won his first singles title at the 2020 Argentina Open. 

Off Court

Ruud’s idol growing up was Rafael Nadal, and after starting tennis aged four, he spent time at the Rafael Nadal Academy in Mallorca. He loves watching golf and has a separate Instagram account to share his passion for the sport, @casper_golfer. He says he would be a pilot if he had not been a successful tennis player, and follows the Tampa Bay Lightning hockey team. 

Career

Ruud’s 2021 season propelled him to a career-high ranking of No.11, capturing four titles on clay and a best-ever round of 16 Grand Slam finish at the Australian Open. He has had a full schedule this year, recording wins over Diego Schwartzman, Pablo Carreno Busta and Fabio Fognini in Monte Carlo, Denis Shapovalov in Geneva and Stefano Tsitsipas in Madrid.
