<p>Ruud, ranked fourth, won the first set without dropping a point on his serve. In the second set, he needed to save five set points to win in straight sets.</p>
<p>In the championship match on Saturday, the Norwegian will take on either eighth-seeded Australian Jordan Thompson or top-seeded German Alexander Zverev.</p>
<p>Overall, Ruud stated, “it was a really close match, especially the second set.” “I was lucky enough to hold him off there and save a few set points.”</p>
<p>Ruud, who had faced set points in his previous two service games, said, “I was just a bit lucky.” He stormed to a 4-0 lead in the tiebreaker and completed the match in one hour and forty-nine minutes.</p>
<p>Ruud, who won in San Diego in 2021, is hoping to win a second hard-court championship in his career. In three major 2022 title matches—the Miami Open, US Open, and Nitto ATP Finals—he was runner-up. He has won every championship he has held at the ATP 250 level.</p>
<p>If the No. 4 seed beats the winner of Saturday’s match between top seed Alexander Zverev and Australia’s Jordan Thompson, he will pass Tsitsipas when the rankings are released again and make a comeback to the Top 10.</p>
<p>By the conclusion of play, both Ruud and Thompson are expected to do double duty; Ruud will team up with William Blumberg, while Thompson will team up with Max Purcell.</p>
