Game info Richard Gasquet vs Casper Ruud


The confrontation between Richard Gasquet and Casper Ruud takes place this Tuesday, November 1, in a match valid for the second round of the ATP Masters 1000 of Paris in its 2022 version. US Open, the Norwegian Casper Ruud appears as one of the main seeds of the table, but due to his poor performance in the last appearances, he is not, in theory, one of the titles' favorites. As his first obstacle in the French tournament, he will face the home athlete Richard Gasquet. The estimated start of the match is at 13:00 UTC.


How the ATP Masters 1000 Paris works


The ATP Masters 1000 Paris is a traditional tennis competition that currently distributes 1000 ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals), ranking points to the winner. The tournament's first edition was held in 1972, reaching its 48th edition this year. We will have all the best players in the world in contention for the cup in the 2022 edition, except for Alexander Zverev, who will not attend due to injury. Emphasizing the main competitors, we will have the big favorite for the title, Novak Djokovic; the current number 1 in the world, Carlos Alcaraz; and the current number 2 in the world, Rafael Nadal, who will attempt an unprecedented title in his career. The ATP Masters 1000 Paris prize pool is €3,084,450, and the tournament in 2022 will run from October 29 to November 6.


Richard Gasquet

At first, Richard Gasquet currently occupies number 76 in the ATP ranking, reaching the best position of his career in July 2007, when he was number 7 in the world. The seasoned 37-year-old French player is on the hunt for his sixteenth major career title, having won his last in 2018 when he won a single championship that year at Hertogenbosch. It is also worth mentioning that despite his vast collection of trophies, he has never lifted a cup as necessary as the one in the current championship (Masters 1000). In the current season, he has not been an opponent so feared by his rivals, mainly because he has shown physical fatigue above normal. However, last month (October), he made an excellent appearance in Antwerp, reaching the semi-finals.


Casper Ruud

On the other hand, Casper Ruud currently occupies number 4 in the ATP ranking, reaching the best position of his career in September this year, when he was number 2 in the world. First of all, even though the 23-year-old Norwegian has only won tournaments that distribute few points this season (Geneva, Gstaad, and Buenos Aires), the athlete was boosted in the world ranking of tennis players by his excellent campaigns in two of the four main competitions of the year, where he reached the grand finals of Roland Garros and the US Open. However, in his last appearances, he made terrible appearances on the hard surface, being eliminated in the second round at the ATP Seoul, in the opening round of the ATP in Tokyo, and finally, again, eliminated in the debut of the ATP Basel.
