ATP Cup 2022: Casper Ruud vs. Cristian Garin Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2022 ATP Cup as Casper Ruud takes on Cristian Garin on Day 5 on Wednesday, January 5th, 2021.

Will Cristian Garin be able to get a win for Team Chile under his belt in a full match? Will Casper Ruud bounce back from a tough loss in his second match here at the 2022 ATP Cup? Both players know that this is a very important tie for their country’s chances here, but only one will get a vital point. Who will it be?

Cristian Garin will be happy that although he did not play a full match against Dusan Lajovic, with the Serb retiring down 3-0 in the third set. Garin is a great player on his day, with a great all round game and a lot of spin which allows him to push his opponents back. However, in these hot hard court conditions he has to find a bit more speed on his shots as he does sometimes give his opponents too much time. Garin will now face a very tough opponent in Casper Ruud and he will know that if he is not at his best, he will most likely lose easily at the 2022 ATP Cup.

Casper Ruud will be looking to improve from his loss to the always tough, Roberto Bautista Agut, as he knows that he could’ve taken that match to a third set if he was perhaps playing 10% better. Casper is a good player on hard courts, but that match showed us that there are still some aspects he can improve, such as the speed of his second serve, and his backhand rallying ability. Casper will know that this match and tie does not really give Team Norway any chance of progressing here at the 2022 ATP Cup, but he will still want to get a win against Cristian Garin just for his confidence.

Casper Ruud and Cristian Garin have met 2 times before, with Cristian Garin leading the head to head 2-0. They met both times in 2019 where Garin won them in tight matches. Although Garin leads the head to head, since 2019, Ruud has improved drastically compared to Garin, and he is now a top 10 player who was one of the best players in 2021, winning the most titles and making a big name for himself in all tournaments. Cristian, on the other hand, has played well but he really peaked in 2019 and has been trying to find that level ever since. I expect an easy win for Ruud as he has adapted his game more to these conditions at the 2022 ATP Cup.
