Clay court specialist Casper Ruud has done well so far in the Toronto Open by reaching the third round. Moreover, the world number 12 beat Lajovic and Cilic on his way and set up a mouthwatering encounter with Tsitipas. Ruud has met twice with the Greek before and has a 1-1 record.
Casper Ruud is having an amazing season so far. Indeed, the Norwegian won four of his five career titles this year in Geneva, Bastad, Gstaad, and Kitzbuhel, all on clay.

Casper Ruud vs Stefanos Tsitsipas Prediction
We think it will be a close match with very little separating both players from each other. In addition, they both have won titles this year and the hard court is not their favorite surface.
Casper Ruud won the last H2H at the Madrid Open on clay. However, we don’t have to go so far back to find that Ruud is playing very well currently. Hence the Norwegian converted all three break points in his last match against Lajovic.
On the other side of the court, Tsitsipas as well has been playing very well in Toronto as we saw in the preview. The Greek eliminated two of the hottest players now on Tour, Khachanov the Olympics finalist, and Humbert who eliminated Titsipas in Tokyo.
