Novak Djokovic vs Casper Ruud betting preview
Novak Djokovic made smooth progress through the opening four rounds without dropping a set, beating 3-0 Aleksandr Kovacevic, Marton Fucsovics, Alejandro Davidovich Fokina and Juan Pablo Varillas. He had to come from behind to beat number 11 Karen Khachanov in the quarter-finals and defeated a physically-impaired Carlos Alcaraz in the semifinal.
The Serb started the year very well, winning two titles in Australia (ATP Adelaide and the Australian Open in Melbourne). There have been no tournaments won since then and he's suffered some surprising losses on clay. He has a match record of 11-3 on clay this year, but it was 5-3 before the Roland Garros.
A win for Djokovic in this match is backable at 2/9 with Bet365.

After beating Elias Ymer in straight sets, Casper Ruud dropped some sets against Giulio Zeppieri and Zhang Zhizhen but in his last three matches, he has now beaten Nicolas Jarry - who recently beat him in Geneva - a somewhat-limited Holger Ruud, and Alexander Zverev. It has been a crescendo for the Norwegian so far, who hit the peak of his form in the semi-final against Zverev, beaten in straight sets with an impressive 6-0 in the third one.
Ruud is 11-5 on clay so far this year and has won one title. In his career, the Norwegian has twice come within one win of his own major title but lost to Nadal in the 2022 Roland Garros final (thrashed 6-3 6-3 6-0) and to Alcaraz a few months later in the US Open final. He also made it through to the 2022 ATP Finals decider in Turin, when beaten 7-5 6-3 by Djokovic.
Best odds on Ruud to win? 18/5 with 10bet.

During 2022 they also clashed in the Italian Open semi-finals and Djokovic also won in straight sets (6-4, 6-3). Actually, Ruud is yet to win a set in four encounters against the former number 1.
Novak Djokovic vs Casper Ruud predictions
Casper Ruud has found top form again at Roland Garros. He is in the French Open final for the second year in a row. Last year he lost to Rafa Nadal but only won six games in a straight sets defeat.
Djokovic had also underwhelmed at times this term, but he is a whole different beast at Grand Slams. He has only lost two of his last 12 Grand Slam finals and boast a 4-0 H2H record over Ruud.
As a result, the Serb should be celebrating Grand Slam title number 23 on Sunday afternoon.
