Jarry triumphs over Ruud, secures spot in Geneva Open semifinals

Nicolás Jarry defeated Casper Ruud in a three-set battle at the 2023 Geneva Open.

The top seed, Casper Ruud, made his debut in the round of 16 against American player J.J. Wolf and achieved a great victory of 6-3, 7-6 against a tough opponent. The Norwegian arrived in good form, having reached the semifinals of the Rome Open and being defeated by Holger Rune.

Chilean player Nicolás Jarry reached the quarterfinals after defeating Dusan Lajovic in the first round (6-4, 6-2) and then advanced by walkover as the sixth seed, Tallon Griekspoor, withdrew from the tournament to prepare well for the upcoming French Open.

The first set was closely contested, with Jarry holding his service games more comfortably than the former world No. 2. However, Ruud capitalized on his opportunities in the eighth game to break Jarry's serve and take the first set 6-3.

The second set was even tighter, with both players holding their serves without much trouble. In fact, neither player managed to earn more than one point when receiving their opponent's serve. In the tie-break, the former world No. 38 did not give Ruud any chances with his serve and took the match to a third set.

Jarry took the lead in the third set and was serving at 4-3, but Ruud broke back to prolong the match. However, it wasn't enough as Jarry broke once again and took the decisive set 7-5.
