Kasper Ruud vs Dennis Novak prediction. At first glance, it seems that this match of the 1/8 finals of the competition in Gstaad will not be competitive, but we will still see what will happen in practice.
A detailed analytical analysis of the match is published below.
The only head-to-head confrontation of the represented athletes, which took place on the courts of Braga in 2018, ended with an easy Victoria Ruuda. According to the sportbooks, Kasper also became the undisputed favorite of the upcoming meeting, and there is a high probability that he will justify this status again.
Ruud became the champion of the tournament in Hamburg last week, and he will certainly try to build on his success in Gstaad. Casper spent a little effort, so he has plenty of resources for another title race. Moreover, the clay competitions will end very soon, so in the near future the Norwegian should give his best to the maximum.
Novak has already managed to hold one fight on Swiss soil, in which he easily dealt with world number 170 Kasper Zhuk. Dennis showed a good game in that match, but it is obvious that he is not ready to compete with top tennis players. Even at the challengers, the representative of Austria does not always stay for a long time, since, unfortunately, he begins to slow down at a distance.
