Casper Ruud to take on Federico Coria in ATP Bastad final
The 16th ranked Casper Ruud will be aiming to win his second title of the season
Top seed Casper Ruud will meet Argentine Federico Coria in the final of the ATP Nordea Open in Bastad on Sunday. 22-year-old Ruud defeated Roberto Carballes Baena 6-1, 6-4 to reach his second final on the ATP tour in 2021.
The 16th ranked Ruud, who won the Geneva Open in May, needed only 79 minutes to win his semi-final to continue his strong run of form on clay courts this season. Besides his title in Geneva, Ruud also reached the semi-finals at Monte-Carlo and Madrid earlier in the year.
Coria, the younger brother of former world No 3 and former Roland-Garros finalist Guillermo Coria, defeated Yannick Hanfmann 6-2, 6-1 to reach his first ATP final of his career. The Argentine is currently ranked a career-best No. 77 in the world.
