Casper Ruud captured his third Geneva ATP title this weekend when he ousted Tomas Machac in the final 7-5, 6-3.

The World no 7 now believes this was a good preparation for the upcoming French Open campaign starting Monday vs Brazilian Felipe Alves.

“I’ve played four good matches, four quite tough matches so I think physically it’s a good kind of preparation,” Ruud told reporters after the match.

Both the semi-final and final of the ATP250 event in Geneva had to be played on Saturday due to earlier rain delays. A resistant Ruud first took out Flavio Cobolli 1-6 6-1 7-6 in a tough battle where he had to save one match point, before going on to defeat Tomas Machac just hours later.

Ruud a proper challenger in Paris?

The Norwegian, who also won the Geneva event in 2021 and 2022, is now feeling well prepared for the long battle matches at the Roland Garros.

Ruud hope to be third-time lucky at the French Open after losing two finals in Paris (to Rafa Nadal and Novak Djokovic), but he wants to take one step at the time, and commented:

“The goal, like any other Slam, is to reach the second week and from there typically I’ve seen that things open up a little bit,”.
