Fourth seed Casper Ruud will face Australia's World No. 40 Jordan Thompson in the final of the 2024 Los Cabos Open. The match will be played on Saturday, February 24, 2024. Here's our Casper Ruud vs Jordan Thompson prediction.

Casper Ruud

Casper Ruud has been to Mexico before, but this is actually the first time he is playing in the Los Cabos Open. And it has been some debut for the two-time Roland Garros finalist who reached his first ATP final of the season. Ruud dethroned defending champion Stefanos Tsitsipas in Friday's semifinal in two tight sets. The Norwegian was flawless on serve in the first set, winning all 14 points behind his first delivery. Tsitsipas managed to find his mojo in the second set, but Ruud stood tall, saving SIX set points to come away with a 6-4, 7-6 win. 

Jordan Thompson

Jordan Thompson produced the upset of the tournament as he eliminated top seed Alexander Zverev in a late-night classic in Los Cabos. The match lasted three hours and 42 minutes, and it took the Australian World No. 40 a total of SEVEN match points to see victory in a pulsating third set, which went for an hour and a half. It follows Thompson's remarkable fightback in the quarterfinal when he rallied against American teenager Alex Michelsen from the brink of defeat. The 29-year-old is guaranteed to rise to a career-high ranking of 36th after this run, so can he top it off with his first ATP title?

Casper Ruud vs Jordan Thompson Head-To-Head

The head-to-head is tied at 2-2, and they have contested each of those meetings on all surfaces. Their last hard-court match was at the 2021 Australian Open when Thompson retired while trailing by two sets to love.

Casper Ruud vs Jordan Thompson prediction

Thompson is playing in his third career final on the ATP Tour. He lost his previous two, both on grass courts of 's-Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands. Ruud, meanwhile, has been averaging at least one title in each of the last four seasons. And while the Norwegian has fallen from grace in past six months, he remains the heavy favorite to win the Los Cabos title on Saturday night. Thompson has expended a lot of energy to reach the championship match, and it is highly doubtful he'll exhibit the same swagger that earned him big wins over Michelsen and Zverev. Fourth-seeded Ruud has looked the part and took down defending champion Tsitsipas rather easily. Back Ruud to hoist his first title of 2024.
