ATP Finals semis - Is Ruud ready to derail Djokovic? Andrea Gaudenzi chat

Novak Djokovic and Casper Ruud will face off in the final match of the 2022 ATP season after Djokovic’s narrow victory over Taylor Fritz and Ruud’s thumping of Andrey Rublev. 

How well did Djokovic play against Fritz? Could Fritz have done more? What happened to Rublev’s newfound mental resilience? How much has Ruud improved as a player? And does he have the belief to beat Djokovic? 

With Catherine joining David and Matt from Turin, we also chat about the doubles semi-finals as well as Catherine’s interview with Andrea Gaudenzi who had an encouraging message about ATP and WTA unity.
