As far as the match is concerned, Ruud is just like his opponent.

He won the first set comfortably, 6-3, to put Zverev behind immediately.

However, the Tokyo 2020 gold medalist returned to equalize at the end of the second set, 6-1, when the match was tied one set all.

There was almost nothing to choose between the two players as they maintained the situation and used every opportunity that came their way.

While Zverev liked to put in more aces than Ruud, it later offset it with a better first serve percentage of 75 versus Zverev’s 67.
