Tennis star Alexander Zverev is all set to face Casper Ruud in the semi-final game of the French Open 2024, which is slated to take place on June 7 in Paris. Notably, Casper Ruud suffered a loss against Novak Djokovic in the final game of the French Open 2024; however, he has a great chance to grab the title this time as the Serbian has quit the event after sustaining injuries in the fourth round, which allowed Ruud to directly enter the semi-finals.

Notably, Ruud entered Paris following a title-winning run at the Geneva Open 2024. He defeated Felipe Alves, Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, Tomas Martin Etcheverry, and Taylor Fritz to reach the quarterfinals. However, he was set to face Novak in the semi-finals, but the 37-year-old withdrew from the Roland Garros.

On the other hand, Alexander Zverev defeated 14-time tournament champions Rafael Nadal, David Goffin, Tallon Griekspoor, Holger Rune, and Alex de Minaur to secure a semifinal berth in Paris.
