Fils Upsets Casper Ruud

It felt like a no doubter from the start, as Fils came out strong against the No. 1 seed Ruud. The 19-year old went onto win 6-0, 6-4, to collect his first win against a Top 20 player.

In just 78 minutes, Fils managed 35 winners to his opponent’s six. In the first set alone, he managed to convert three of his six break points, and 25 of those winners came off his electric forehand.

Fils has had an excellent week so far, and will be looking to bring that to the semifinals. This will be his first final four played outside of France, and his first semifinal appearance at a ATP 500 level tournament.

The Home Favorite

Is Zverev the home favorite? I think that’s a fair statement.

The German isn’t still quite at the level he was prior to his injury last year, but he’s been chipping away, and making it deep in tournaments. This tournament in particular holds a special place in Zverev’s heart, as it’s the tournament that put him on the map almost 10 years ago.

In just about an hour and a half, Zverev booked his spot in the semifinals by defeating France’s Luca Van Assche 6-3, 6-4. En route to the win, Zverev collected eight aces, with just one double fault, and managed a 82 win percentage when landing his first serve.

He’s now 31-18 in 2023, and will look to add a couple more wins to that as he hopes to continue in the tournament.

First Career Meeting

Much like the other semifinal happening, this will be the first time these two will face each other in their careers as well.

Fils vs Zverev Pick

These two have a similar style of play, in the sense that they are strong baseline players who rely heavily on their power.

Zverev is obviously coming into this match with a bit more experience, and the help of a home crowd, but Fils has been playing well this week and overall on the surface.

Both Fils and Zverev have the ability to win this match. Neither player has dropped a set yet this week, so it could really go either way. But regardless of the winner here, just look for the match to go the distance.

Best Bet: Over 2.5 sets (+146)
