Tennis: Ugo Humbert loses to Casper Ruud in the quarter-final in Monte-Carlo

He had never gone beyond the first round in Monte-Carlo and will not go beyond the quarter-finals this year. Ugo Humbert lost against the Norwegian Casper Ruud for his return to clay in three sets (6-3, 4-6, 6-1). Messin still put up a good fight against the double finalist at Roland Garros, especially in the second set.

A second round that Humbert started very badly, losing the first two games and being broken from the start. But he was able to regain his strength despite his long match the day before against Sonego and won four consecutive games to win 6 to 4, encouraged by the Marseillaise of the French supporters present on the Rock.

In the last round, Casper Ruud showed who was the stronger of the two on clay to inflict a severe 6-1 on Ugo Humbert. In the semi-final, the Norwegian will face world number 1 Novak Djokovic, who defeated Australian De Minaur in the quarter.

The other semi-final will pit the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas (winner of the Russian Karen Khachanov) against the terror of the moment, the Italian Jannik Sinner, who dominated the Dane Holger Rune in three sets.
