Casper Ruud ended Francisco Cerúndolo’s dream in Miami

Franciso Cerúndolo had about two weeks to remember. Although on two occasions he was benefited by the retirement of his rivals, nothing takes away the merit of a huge job he had to do at the Masters 1000 in Miami, where he achieved his two best victories against Gael Monfils and Frances Tiafoe. it was the turn of the Cordovan to jump back on the field of play with a challenge ahead. Casper Ruud, champion of the Argentina Open and member of the Top 10, appeared on the radar and sought to confirm his great present on hard court.

From the outset, the match was even as Francisco usually battles and taking advantage of the physical advantage. However, the Norwegian achieved a decisive break to take the partial by 6 to 4. From there, everything changed for the sixth seed in the tournament that dominated throughout the half. After an hour and 34 minutes, Rudd managed to sentence the match by 6 to 1 and in this way broke the curse of three consecutive defeats in the semifinals of Masters 1000 and also becomes the first of his country to get into this instance, not only of Miami but of all the contests of this category.
For Francisco, the defeat in the semifinals means a significant sum of money to continue his growth, as well as advance to 50th place in the ranking that opens new doors and allows him to avoid the qualy of the big tournaments, looking for professional growth. Finally, Ruud hopes to meet his rival who will come out of the surprising Hubert Hurkacz, who arrives after defeating the world number two, Daniil Medvedev, or Carlos Alcaráz, the great Spanish figure of the moment, who wants to start writing his great story at age 18.
