French Open 2022 Quarter-Finals: Ruud outlasts Rune to reach first major semi-final

June 2, 2022

After needing nearly six months to achieve his 2022 goal of reaching a first Grand Slam quarter-final, Casper Ruud’s next career milestone came fairly quickly by comparison.

The Norwegian was tested by Denmark’s Holger Rune over three hours and 18 minutes on Court Philippe-Chatrier, in the first all-Scandinavian quarter-final in Roland-Garros history.

But as another chapter in their region’s storied history was written in Paris, it was Ruud who had the last word.

The 23-year-old surged past Rune and weathered a mid-match wobble to win 6-1, 4-6, 7-6(2), 6-3 and move into his first Grand Slam final four, where he will meet 2014 US Open champion Marin Cilic.
