"It was one of those days where everything goes in one favour and luckily it was mine" - Ruud on easy win against Auger

Casper Ruud was a bit lucky to face a very bad Auger-Aliassime who was all over the place early and it stayed that way until the end of the match.

Ruud lost his serve in the first game of the match but came back strong to win six games in a row. That was the beginning of the end for AugeR who lost the 2nd quickly as well sending the Norwegian into the semi-final. Ruud was aware that he was quite lucky with that but he didn't mind:

“It was one of those days where everything goes in one favour and luckily it was in my favour. With a player like Felix, you need to rely on some margins going your way. I didn’t expect them to all go on my side. It was a bit of a difficult start. I got broken but then was able to turn everything around. I hit my spots, made the shots I needed to and make him hit a lot of balls. That was the game plan and it worked well."

He added:

”I am sure Felix has played better than he has today. He has for sure, I have seen it before. It is a pity because he is playing at home. Maybe that was a factor, you could be nervous, but I am not going to talk for Felix. It was a big moment. This arena was full today and I am lucky I was able to win.”
