In recent years, the world of tennis has increasingly approached social media and there are many tennis players, more or less known, who are very involved and interact with their fans. In the last few hours it is the former number two in the world and now Top 5 Casper Ruud who has been the protagonist of a nice question and answer with the fans, where the Nordic talent talked a bit about many topics.
The tennis player spoke in particular of the relationship with the Italian tennis player Matteo Berrettini, with the two who have always been great friends, here are his words: “Matteo and I in love? I wouldn’t say, we are good friends and we had a couple of very beautiful during the Laver Cup.
Matteo is a good boy but we are not in love. I would define our relationship as a good Bromance, this is the right word to define our relationship.” Casper spoke of his somewhat disordered movements when he has to respond to a short ball and the tennis player revealed: “Yes, she is beautiful!
It’s just my reaction, and maybe it feels peculiar at times. I’m focused on the tennis players and groundstrokes, then when someone hits a short ball they often surprise me and so my instinctive reaction is to throw my hands up and run as fast as possible.
I’m aware that it’s not as pretty to look at as a thing.”
Casper Ruud on Serena Williams and on Murray
The tennis player responded to many topics and he also talked about women’s tennis and its current and past champions.
In this regard, Casper revealed: “Iga plays in a very entertaining way, last year she literally dominated. If I have to mention a tennis player from the past, I would say without a doubt Serena and for me she is undoubtedly the GOAT of women’s tennis.” Finally Ruud talked about the possibility of playing doubles with the British Andy Murray, a tennis player he has always admired.
Casper concluded: “Andy is a legend of the sport, it’s great to face him in singles. We played together in the Laver Cup, we’ve never been able to play doubles but I’d like to hear him for the partnership.”
