Ruud aims to turn disappointment into motivation after ATP Finals: " If you look at the opponents I've played, it's been tough"

Casper Ruud plans to turn the disappointment of the ATP Finals final loss to Djokovic into motivation for next year.

Casper Ruud experienced a fair share of disappointments this year but he bounced back stronger each time. He lost in the Roland Garros final only to come back and reach the final of the US Open later. He lost that final as well but he bounced back well and booked another major final at the ATP Finals.

It's something he is using as fuel:

"I've had many experiences this year in losing these finals. It's just going to try to motivate me to win them if I ever get to them again. If you look at the opponents I've played, it's been tough. You have to say that Rafa in Roland Garros and Novak here, it's probably some of the toughest challenges that we have. I don't feel very bad that I wasn't able to beat them."

He added:

"It gives me motivation and a hunger to maybe next time, like I said, if I ever get to another final like this, I hope I can learn from what I have done this year and not been able to do and see how it goes."
