Patrick McEnroe backs Casper Ruud to win Roland Garros by 2024

Retired American pro and 1989 French Open doubles champion Patrick McEnroe belies that Casper Ruud is on an upward trajectory, which will see him lift the Roland Garros trophy within the next three years.

Ruud has been on a tear this season, leading the ATP with five titles won thus far. His most recent victory came in San Diego, his first on hardcourt. Earlier this year, the Norwegian made history by becoming the first player in over a decade to win three titles in as many weeks, lifting back-to-back-to-back trophies at Bastad, Gstaad and Kitzbuhel in July.

With the three titles coming on clay, Patrick McEnroe believes that the 22-year old could win the Roland Garros title in the near future.

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

Ruud has reached the thrid round at Roland Garros the last three years, losing to Roger Federer in 2019 and Dominic Thiem in 2020. However, he has a 28-5 record on clay this season, with five of his six career titles coming on clay.
