Djokovic confronts “phenomenon” Casper Ruud
In theory, the confrontation between Djokovic (1st seed) and Casper Ruud, 8th seed is the most “mismatch” match in the ATP Finals, but saying that does not mean that the Norwegian player is overrated. short.
The 2021 season recognizes Casper Ruud’s outstanding maturity with commendable achievements.
