Ruud – Rublev: result and relation. We know all the ATP Finals semi-finalists. Tennis

The first game of the Green Group on Friday decided which of these tennis players would be promoted to the top four. The nearly 23-year-old Norwegian turned out to be better, defeating Rublev for the first time in his career after a two-and-a-half hour fight and a tie-break in the decisive set. The Russian was better in the four previous matches of these players.

The duel was very fierce, although the first set did not herald emotions later. Rublev needed just over half an hour to break his opponent’s pass twice and win 6: 2. Later, there was a fierce fight for every point on the court, won by Ruud’s eighth-ranked ATP. His next rival will be Medvedev’s “two” on the world list. They have met twice so far and the Norwegian has not yet managed to win even a set.

In the second semi-final, the leader of the Djoković ranking will play against Zverev. In the evening game of the Green Group, the Serb will meet British Cameron Norrie, who replaced the injured Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas as the second substitute during the event. Regardless of his result, Djoković will be promoted from the first place in the table.

Hubert Hurkacz played in the Red Group, but after three defeats he was eliminated from the tournament.

The result of the Green Group:

Casper Ruud (Norway, 8) bt Andrey Ruudov (Russia, 5) 2: 6, 7: 5, 7: 6 (7-5)
