It’s no secret that Rafael Nadal has played a huge role in inspiring Casper Ruud to reach the heights he has.

“He’s inspiring,” Ruud said. “Very competitive, it doesn’t matter if it’s tennis or golf. And he has two personalities, one on the court where he is tough, tough and plays with great intensity; and another outside where he is a very normal guy and nice. .

He always says hello and everyone on the structure treats him like a normal person. I think he likes that. “Ruud has credited his thinking to none other than Nadal. World No. 8 revealed that at the beginning of his career he had promised never to try to break a racket like the Spanish star.
