French Open final LIVE: Rafael Nadal takes on Casper Ruud at Roland Garros


Share post:

World no 8 Ruud is delighted to earn a Grand Slam final against Nadal, who he has never played in a competitive ATP match. 

The 23-year-old, who played at Nadal’s academy, said after beating Cilic in his semi-final: “He (Nadal) is the last player of the ‘Big Three’ and the very, very top players in the world I have never faced. 

“I guess this is perfect timing and it was worth the wait. To finally play him in a Grand Slam final will be a special moment for me. Hopefully a little bit for him as well. 

“He has played so many finals, but at least he’s playing a student from his academy this time. It’s going to be a fun one, hopefully.”
