Cincinnati Masters – The sensation: Casper Ruud eliminated by the promise Ben Shelton in the 2nd round (6-3, 6-3)

Ben Shelton continues his journey to the Cincinnati Masters 1000. The day after his victory against Lorenzo Sonego (7-6, 3-6, 7-5), the 19-year-old American made an impression on Wednesday by dismissing Casper Ruud, finalist at Roland-Garros in June and semi-finalist in Montreal last week, in two short sets (6-3, 6-3). In the round of 16, the 229th player in the world will face Cameron Norrie, scorer of Andy Murray (3-6, 6-3, 6-4) a few hours earlier.

The young American crack took the service of the Norwegian from the start during the first then the second set before holding his faceoff solidly. In addition to his very high percentage of successful points on the first ball (85%), Ben Shelton did not not concede the slightest break point during this meeting concluded after only 1h08 of play.
