Significant success for Ruud
The young Norwegian has had a very strong season, after two finals in helmets he managed to advance to the decisive match here as well.

At this tournament, Ruud secured the top spot in the group after just two games as he defeated Auger-Aliassime in straight sets and Taylor Fritz in three games, both victories hard. There was no tournament motivation in the third match, the Norwegian lost to his idol Rafa Nadal – 5:7, 5:7. In the semi-finals, Ruud defeated Russian Andrei Rublev – 6:2, 6:4.
Djokovic can win another title
The fact that “zero” reached the final is quite expected, having won all four matches in this tournament. In the group stage, Djokovic defeated Tsitsipas, Rublev and Medvedev in turn. The semi-finals proved difficult, although the Serbian defeated Fritz in straight sets, both times having to play tie-breaks. Novak has won the finals five times, only Federer has more titles to his name (6), so if he wins, the Serbian could catch up with the star Swiss.
The rivals played each other three times, twice on clay and once on hard, in all cases Djokovic won without giving up the game. The only match on artificial turf took place at the Final Tournament last year, but then the tennis players’ paths crossed in the group stage.
