The Norwegian, who beat Denis Shapovalov in the Geneva final last year, demonstrated great agility against Opleka as he soaked up the World No. 18’s thunderous groundstrokes in the lively conditions to extend his perfect ATP Head2Head record against the fourth seed to 4-0.

“I am looking forward to the final tomorrow,” Ruud said. “It was a tough match against Opelka like it always is. The serve he has is incredibly difficult to return here, with the altitude. I was able to take the small chances I had and I feel like I served well and was solid, with not too many mistakes. That is key in matches like this.”

Ruud has yet to drop a set this week, having arrived at the ATP 250 event off the back of a run to the semi-finals in Rome. By reaching the final after 90-minutes, the second seed is the first player to advance to multiple Geneva championship matches since home favourite Stan Wawrinka lifted the trophy in 2016 and 2017. The 23-year-old is aiming to capture his second tour-level title of the season after clinching the crown in Buenos Aires in February.
