TennisSection previews the 2022 French Open as Casper Ruud takes on Jo-Wilfred Tsonga in the Round of 128 on Tuesday, May 24th, 2022.
Will Casper Ruud get the win? Will Jo-Wilfred Tsonga pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where we have one of the best clay courters in the world coming up against a French legend likely playing in his last ever match. Who will triumph and move on to the Round of 64 at the 2022 French Open?
Casper Ruud has had a pretty good season all around, playing rather poorly in the first half of the clay season, but really turning it around with a semifinal in Rome and looking to go pretty deep at the French Open. Jo-Wilfred Tsonga will obviously have all the love of the crowd and will be playing with a different mentality with it being his last ever tennis match after such a long career. Ruud is playing well and I definitely expect him to stay tough and power on to the Round of 64 at the 2022 French Open.
Jo-Wilfred Tsonga has had such a great career, several top ten finishes and even climbing up to the World No. 5 spot, reaching a major final along with several other deep runs at the majors and even clinching the masters title in his home country. He has a brutal first round opponent coming up against Casper Ruud, the world no. 8 and a player with high expectations for this tournament. While Tsonga may have almost nothing left to give in terms of being able to win a match like this, but he’ll most certainly have a nice time as he’ll be signing off at home at the 2022 French Open.
Casper Ruud and Jo-Wilfred Tsonga have never met before, with this being their first career meeting. It’s a tough matchup, Tsonga obviously hardly has the legs left to compete and with the brutal clay court game style of Ruud, he’ll be tested severely in every aspect. Ruud can really dictate with that forehand but at the same time grind it out in the rallies and defend very well. Let’s see what the Norwegian can do to start off his campaign here at the 2022 French Open, but even more significantly, enjoy the finishing touch on the amazing career of Jo-Wilfred Tsonga.
