The top seed who suffered straight set defeats in his last two matches raised his level against Casper Ruud, who has won his first two matches of the tournament. Nadal did not appear to be in any trouble and showcased glimpses of his best form to seal a one-hour, 43-minute victory and round out his 2022 season on a winning note.

“I have been practising well,” said Nadal after his win. “Just probably not enough matches to be at the level that I needed to be. Not enough confidence, probably, after six tough months. That’s how it is. I accept that the season didn’t end the way that I wanted, [but] at least I finished with a positive victory.”

“It’s important, the last official match of the season, so I am happy for that. At the end I am happy about that… I was able to win against a great player,” he added.

The 36-year-old Nadal, who this year lifted four tour-level titles, including major crowns at the Australian Open and Roland Garros, ends 2022 with a 39-8 tour-level record. Despite Thursday’s defeat, Ruud progresses to the semi-finals in Turin for the second consecutive year.

Joining the Norwegian in qualifying for the semi-finals from Green Group will be Felix Auger-Aliassime or Taylor Fritz. The duo will be facing each other in a winner-takes-all clash in Thursday’s night session at the Pala Alpitour.
