Seventh seed Casper Ruud will lock horns with Tomas Martin Etcheverry in the third round of the 2024 French Open on Saturday, June 1.

Ruud knocked out Felipe Meligeni Alves in straight sets to make the second round, where he took on Alejandro Davidovich Fokina. A tight first set went the Norwegian's way after he came out on top in the tie-break.

Davidovich Fokina was quick to respond and captured the second set for the loss of only one game. Ruud let go of an early headstart in the third set but regrouped to gain the upper hand again in the set to take it.

The momentum then swung back in Davidovich Fokina's favor, who claimed the fourth set. Ruud raised his level in the decider, breaking the Spaniard's serve twice for a 7-6 (5), 1-6, 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 win.

Etcheverry ousted Arthur Cazaux in the first round to book his spot in the second round, where he took on another Frenchman, Arthur Rinderknech. The Argentine got broken at the start of the first set and couldn't recover, thus losing the set.

The second set was closely contested, eventually going to a tie-break. Etcheverry fended off three set points in it before he finally folded on the fourth one. The Argentine was in the zone in the third set, conceding only one game in it.

His comeback continued in the fourth set as he raced to a 5-0 lead. Rinderknech injured himself in the middle of the set and couldn't continue after that, and retired from the match. Etcheverry thus advanced to the next round.

Ruud experienced a little deja vu against Davidovich Fokina. Three years ago they crossed paths at the French Open and were engrossed in another five-set battle. However, the Norwegian had the last laugh this time to avenge his prior loss.

Etcheverry was mounting a comeback when Rinderknech injured himself and threw in the towel. He wasn't deterred after losing the first couple of sets and instead raised his level after that.

Ruud recently beat Etcheverry en route to the Barcelona Open title a month ago. The Norwegian has all the tools he needs to succeed in this match-up. Even in the previous round, his level in the deciding set was a lot higher than at the start of the match. If he can replicate that right off the bat, then handling the Argentine shouldn't be an issue.

Pick: Casper Ruud to win in four sets.
