Can 2023 be the same? - Casper Ruud

Tennis was introduced to the Norwegian #1 Casper Ruud, on multiple occasions last year.

Making both the French Open and US Open finals, Ruud had an opportunity to clinch a slam for his trophy cabinet, twice in 2022.

Although he was unsuccessful, he remained steadfast and won multiple other trophies in the process.

Ruud has an all-court game at this point in his career, and he is fairly young.

As his weapons become more specified and experience grows, he will be a household name for time to come.

Look for Ruud to try and get off to a great start this week and get through the first few rounds with ease.

Danish Superstar - Holger Rune

After beating Novak Djokovic for the Paris Bercy 1000 title just a few months back, things may seem like a fever dream for Holger Rune.

One of the youngest winners of the tournament in history, there were all positive signs to take from Rune’s game.

The Danish youngster can now be considered “arrived” to the scene, and his game is bigger than anyone his age.

Although he has had great battles with fellow youngster, Carlos Alcaraz, there is so much to love about his overall tennis personality.

Rune can be a star for decades if he continues on this trajectory and will be a shoo-in for this tournament.

Consistency is Key - Cameron Norrie

Cam Norrie and his level-headed game style is one to admire.

The Brit has become a true grinder within the top ten/twenty, and he is a fierce opponent to face on any surface.
