Ruud wins the trophy in the Barcelona Master 500 

Ruud removes the stigma of failure in major finals in Barcelona and takes revenge in Monte Carlo. The Norwegian tennis player wins his first title above the 250 category, confirming his dominance on clay courts. Casper Ruud no longer carries the label of loser in important finals. The Norwegian will always remember the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell.

This Sunday, at the RCT Barcelona, on the ground where Rafael Nadal has been so dominant, Ruud won his first 500 event by beating Stefanos Tsitsipas 7-5, 6-3 in just 1 hour and 29 minutes.

It ends a streak of five consecutive losing finals since he won the Estoril trophy in April 2023. "He feels relieved because the weight of so many lost finals was affecting his mind," admitted his coach Pedro Clar.

Ruud took revenge on Tsitsipas, who had defeated him a week ago in the final of the Monte Carlo Masters 1000. Despite losing the first serve of the match, the Scandinavian player took advantage of his opponent's mistakes in the final, who was tired after two three-set matches, in the quarterfinals against Facundo Diaz Acosta and in the semifinals against Dusan Lajovic. On the other hand, Casper had an impeccable week winning the tournament without losing a single set, succeeding Carlos Alcaraz in the list of winners. Clar's protégé, a native of Mallorca, played his best game, especially with his forehand and backhand, to dispel any doubts about his past performance. The recent winner of the Godó is a clay court specialist, as 10 of his 11 titles have been on this surface.
