Fans dispute Casper Ruud’s claim that Novak Djokovic is the second-best claycourt player of all time, behind Rafael Nadal. “There’s no way you can put Novak Djokovic above Bjorn Borg.”

According to Casper Ruud, Novak Djokovic is second only to Rafael Nadal as the best player on clay. The supporters, meanwhile, weren’t persuaded by his statements.

Ruud won the French Open fourth round against Taylor Fritz of the United States. In a tie-break, the Norwegian won the first set. He lost against the American in the second set, but in the vital third set, he rallied. He kept up his momentum into the fourth game, winning 7-6(6), 3-6, 6-4, and 6-2 against Fritz.In a news conference after the win, Casper Ruud was questioned about what exactly makes Novak Djokovic so skilled on clay. He claimed that even though Swedish great Bjorn Borg won six Roland Garros titles, Djokovic and Rafael Nadal were usually close.

Fans, on the other hand, disagreed with the World No. 7 and expressed their opinions about X. One fan countered by bringing up Roger Federer’s defeats at the French Open final against Rafael Nadal. Additionally, they ranked Bjorn Borg higher on the list than Novak Djokovic. “Rafa defeated him in the finals in 2012, 2014, and 2020. Rafa defeated Roger in 06, 07, 08, and 11. Stan ultimately triumphed over Novak in the final. He is in no way superior to six-time champion Borg.”

Still, one group of supporters agreed with Ruud. A supporter said that during Borg’s tenure, he didn’t compete against Rafael Nadal. “He is accurate. Rafa was a stronger competitor for Borg, the fan claimed. Another admirer echoed, praising “Casper’s words and his brutal honesty in every post-match interview.” “Not a single ray of hope in this man’s discourse,” wrote one fan in an attempt to express disgust.
