“By 2024 Casper Ruud will have a Roland Garros title,” he posted on Twitter.

Ruud has failed to make it through the second week in Paris

Ruud has beaten some of the best players on the clay surface, despite not making it past the third round of the French Open.

Considering this season, he has defeated great players like Stefanos Tsitsipas and Diego Schwartzman in events like Madrid and Monte Carlo, respectively.

The 22-year-old won four clay tournaments this year, including the Geneva Open, Swedish Open, Swiss Open, and Kitzbuhel Open. He won all of these titles in consecutive weeks. These incredible results have catapulted him to the top of the news.

As a result of his achievements, he is regarded as having a bright future on clay, bringing similarities to the legendary Rafael Nadal. At the age of 22, there is still a lot of room for improvement until a player reaches their peak age of 27-28 years.

Ruud has a chance to qualify for the ATP World Tour Finals in Turin at the end of this season.

If he has strong performances in tournaments like Indian Wells and the Rolex Paris Masters, the Norwegian’s chances are good.
