The Norwegian tennis player Casper Ruud beat the Italian Matteo Berrettini today by 6-1, 6-4 and 7-6 (4) and got into the semifinals of the US Open, fourth and last Grand Slam of the season, played in New York.As for the match, Ruud, ranked 7th in the ATP world rankings, started better and took the first partial in just 28 minutes. In the second round, the Norwegian showed consistency from the back of the court in the key moments and won 6-4.

The third half was more worked than the previous ones for the Oslo native, as Berrettini (14th) was 5-2 up. With determination, he took the match in the tie break and settled for the first time in the semifinals of the US Open. In the next instance, he will face the winner of the duel between the Russian Karen Khachanov (31st) and the Australian Nick Kyrgios (25th), who will face each other tonight. On the other hand, after this triumph, Ruud could be one game away from being the number one in the world. For this to happen, the Norwegian would have to win in the semifinals and wait for The Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz, another of the contenders at the top of the rankings, not to reach the final. Should both reach the decisive match, the leader of the ATP world rankings will come out of the winner of that match. If Ruud and Alcaraz do not reach the final, the Spanish Rafael Nadal (3rd), who yesterday lost to the American Frances Tiafoe (26th), will again be the number one in the world.
