Fourth seed Ruud eases into French Open second round
PARIS, May 30, 2023 (BSS/AFP) - Last year's runner-up Casper Ruud reached the
second round of the French Open on Tuesday with a comfortable straight-sets
victory over Sweden's Elias Ymer.
The Norwegian fourth seed, who also lost the US Open final last year to
Carlos Alcaraz, wrapped up a 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 victory on Suzanne Lenglen.
Ruud will next face either unpredictable Kazakh Alexander Bublik or Italian
qualifier Giulio Zeppieri as he continues his attempt to go one better than
12 months ago when he was thrashed in the final by Rafael Nadal.
