Rod vs. Ron at the French Open: Zoff among the Scandinavians

Casper Rudd and Holge Ron are two very likeable guys. The 23-year-old Norwegian looks straight at everyone when he answers questions, for example. You can ask him anything, he is always friendly. The 19-year-old Dane, a new face on the men’s tennis tour but already ranked 40th in the world, speaks as fast as he can move on the court.

He smiles a lot, especially when the game is ok or at least open. He undoubtedly has charisma. If it doesn’t work out, but spectators who watched the duel between the two at Court Philippe Chatrier on Wednesday night know Holger Ron is turning. Then, on this last “night session” of the French Open, it was just like that, a little brutal. Or perhaps very brutally.

In terms of sport, Rudd triumphed in 6:1, 4:6, 7:6 (2), 6:3 and reached the semifinals of a Grand Slam tournament for the first time; He meets Croatian former US Open winner Marin Cilic on Friday. But even after the quarter-finals, the duel between the Scandinavians continued.

At first it seemed in the big stages of the match as if the quarter-finals of the two were also under the banner of ‘Ron vs. the rest of the world’. He started groaning early on, squabbling with himself after almost every losing career, but not only. He kept looking at his chest where his clan was sitting, mother Aneke, trainer Lars Christensen, sister Alma, a model who apparently fell in love with the photographer who was responsible for recording the video screen.

Alma was also often in the picture. In the third set, Ron intimidated himself to return to the seats of his entourage, after which Mom walked off the field and took her time to come back. Ron was said to have called her “Go, go, go.” But Ron later confirmed on TV that he did not send Aneke, who plays an important role in his career as a mentor. On Instagram, Ron admitted that he needed “more emotional control,” as he knew, “I’m going to get better.” But this did not settle everything.

According to the Danish newspaper, Rod should be in the locker room extra blade In turn, Holger Ron, stood in front of Ron and provoked him. “His team was actually very nice, but then he came right up to me and shouted ‘Yes! “In his face,” Ron is said to have been sent. Actually this was a trifle, but it was enough to start a whirlpool of other lawsuits.

“This is just a lie from Holger,” Christian Rudd, Casper’s father and former tennis pro, told the Norwegian version of Eurosport. Now Aniki felt compelled not to let things go this way. She explained that Rod’s father was not there at all, only Rod’s doctor. “We have never seen such behavior on the ATP Tour,” she said, according to various media. It means Casper Rod.

Finally he spoke eighth in the world rankings and said that Holger Ron spoke to him repeatedly during the match, which is something of the chagrin of tennis. He advised the teenager from Copenhagen to “grow up”. This is how Zoff ended up between these two Scandinavians, who were truly loved. By the way, as Aneke Rune once said, the son was not good at losing even when he was young. He is very ambitious.
