Novak Djokovic vs Casper Ruud Preview

Green Group winner Casper Ruud will compete in his first ATP Tour Finals event this Sunday, as the Norweigan takes on five-time Finals winner Novak Djokovic in Turin.

Ruud enters the final in fine form, with his powerful first serve and impressive ability from the baseline firing the 23-year-old through a tough group that also featured Felix Auger-Aliassime, Taylor Fritz and Rafael Nadal, before claiming a straight sets victory over Andrey Rublev in Saturday's semi-final.

Ruud's toughest task awaits him though, with Novak Djokovic - 12 years his senior - standing in his way. Novak is yet to lose this week, dropping just one set in his 6-3, 6-7(5), 7-6(2) victory over Daniil Medvedev.

Questions had been asked of Novak's fitness after he was spotted violently between service games in the clash with Medvedev on Friday, but he was back to his blistering best in victory over Taylor Fritz on Saturday afternoon.

Novak Djokovic vs Casper Ruud Prediction & Betting Tips

2022 has been a breakout year for Casper Ruud, who has climbed to fourth in the world rankings, buoyed by a strong showing in the US Open, where he finished runner-up to world number one, Carlos Alcaraz.

Things haven't been so rosy for Novak Djokovic in 2022, with the Serbian forced to miss both the Australian Open and US Open due to his vaccination status. The Serb did claim yet another Wimbledon crown but that's hardly new for the now eight-time champion.

Few expected to see Casper Ruud in the final of this year's event, and whilst he has impressed this year, we can't look past yet another ATP Finals crown for Novak Djokovic, who continues to age like a fine wine.
