Novak Djokovic is after his 23rd Grand Slam title, which would be the record in tennis. However, he must defeat Casper Ruud to lift the trophy in Paris. 

Before Betting on Djokovic vs. Ruud Roland Garros

Novak was excellent against the reigning No.1, Carlos Alcaraz, turning the Spaniard’s physicality against him. In the end, Alcaraz burned his body to win the second set, and simply crashed after that. A 3-1 win for Novak looked routine, and the last two sets in which Alcaraz took a game apiece showed the Serb’s power.

Novak is tied with Nadal in Grand Slam titles won, and a win here would make him an all-time great. The motivation is at the highest possible level for Nole, who is steaming on confidence.

Ruud is in the Roland Garros finals for the second time in a row, and unlike last year, he wants to win. The Norwegian player looks solid overall, playing decent tennis, but struggling in certain aspects. 

Still, beating Holger Rune and Alexander Zverev in the past two rounds boosted his stocks, especially in the semis in which he swept Zverev in straight sets. Ruud’s forehand is excellent, with a solid topspin, but inconsistent.

This is Novak’s time. With a win over Ruud, he will make the entire sport his, and that’s why we pick the Serb, who is a better player overall than his Norwegian opponent.
