Novak Djokovic vs Casper Ruud prediction

The Serb has not found his best form just as yet in the French capital, with there being plenty of room to improve on both wings. He's lacked the punch on serve too, failing to use it as effectively as he would have liked. He has, however, displayed incredible mental fortitude so far to plow through two five-set epics despite being down.
