Kasper Ruud is a professional tennis player for Norway. He is the first Norwegian to win an ATP championship and reach the semi-finals of an ATP Tour Masters 1000 tournament. On October 25, 2021, he achieved his career-high individual rating of world No. 8, making him the highest-ranked Norwegian player in history. Ruud is considered one of the most promising young talents of his time and one of the best clay court players in the world right now.
Kasper recently held a Twitter Q&A session in response to a fan’s request. “Sure,” he said, “But I only have about 10/15 minutes before my plane takes off… ask whatever you want.” He was asked a handful of questions including his favorite movies and TV shows, his favorite music and his thoughts on them Rafael Nadal‘s most recent win at the Australian Open 2022.
Nadal overcame Daniel Medvedev in the Australian Open final that year, coming back from a two-set deficit to win his 21st Grand Slam championship in a five-set thriller. For the first time in history, Nadal has surpassed Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic to lead the race in the men’s slam record.
When asked by a fan what he thought of Rafa’s Australian Open win, Ruud tweeted: “One of the greatest sporting successes in recent history“Tennis fans shouldn’t be surprised. After Ruud’s win, the world No. 8 took to Twitter to post an emoji of a goat, meaning Nadal was the GOAT of tennis.
Despite his success, he failed to win a match at Wimbledon. When a fan asked Ruud about his ambitions for Wimbledon, he showed his humorous side. “Try to win a game” he answered.
Casper Ruud’s message to the haters
Kasper Ruud was asked how he feels about being called a “clay vulture” for winning most of his matches on a single surface.
One fan asked: “What’s your message to all your haters who say you’re just a clay vulture?” Ruud replied: “I don’t mind at all, clay is a surface with a lot of history, so I can call myself a clay court player.”
Fans also got a sense of his taste in movies. He listed his favorites: The Accountant, American Sniper, and Casino Royale, and his favorite series, he said, is Ozark. He also revealed that his doubles partner is his dream Bjorn Borg. He ended the interaction by saying, “Take off now…sorry I didn’t stay longer, I’ll be back.” Next, he will be seen in action at Indian Wells.
