Ruud has to be wondering what more he has to do to win. Honestly think he played about as well as he could have hoped there, and I don't mean that condescendingly.
Djokovic somehow manages to win important points even when he is not at his best. Just a testament as to how good he really is... His 70% is enough for most on the tour now.

There's usually at least one "bogey" player at the ATP Finals (that is, someone who's really just there to hand matches over to the favorites). Two years ago it was Berrettini, last year it was Rublev, and will it be Ruud this time around?

He is actually playing OK. Definitely not 'Bogey'...

I've noticed that these young players have no fight to get back into the match if they lose a close set or go down 1 or 2 sets. They basically just give up. Very sad to see. You would never see Djokovic or Nadal be like this. They would fight so hard to get back into the match.

The mid-thirties ********** who drank 9 beers last night. The BOAT cumpetishun.
 
Djokovic has more say on his serve and Ruud depends on his mistakes to capitalize. Hoping for some zoning from Casper but it's likely that Novak's level would need to drop for this to go the distance.
