Early Life, Parents And Upbringing
Ruud claimed that Rafael Nadal was one of his tennis inspirations and that he made the Spaniard’s Academy in Mallorca his training headquarters in 2018.
Casper claims that practicing with Nadal has helped him raise his game and aspire higher.
“If Rafa goes 100 percent in matches, he goes 120 percent in practice,” Ruud remarked in a 2019 interview.
“He rips the ball with such force. He enjoys playing high-risk games in practice because it makes it easier for him to slow down during a match if necessary. That is something that has worked for me as well. I’m trying to be more relaxed during the game.
. “He rips the ball with such force. He enjoys playing high-risk games in practice because it makes it easier for him to slow down during a match if necessary. That is something that has worked for me as well. I’m attempting to play looser during training, with higher intensity, faster balls, and working on things you wouldn’t dare to do in a match.
“When I practice with Rafa, he gets to push me around, and after a couple of hours, I’m typically fatigued.” They’re difficult sessions, but they’re fantastic.”
He then advanced from qualifying at the French Open to the second round of the year’s second grand slam, where he was defeated by Albert Ramos Vinolas.
Ruud had a successful 2019 and qualified for the ATP Next Gen Finals, where he was eliminated in the round-robin stage.
