Ruud lost to the Dutch Botic Van de Zandschulp, in 32nd place, by 2 sets to 1 with partials of 3/6 6/4 6/4 after 2h50min of battle that closed the programming of the center court of Hard Rock Stadium.

The Nordic, runner-up at the US Open and Roland Garros, had a break in the second set and at the beginning of the third and lost a truckload of unused break-points. The Dutchman turned after being 1/3 down in the third and saving breaks in the third game to avoid a second break.

Now there are eleven games in 2023 and only five wins for the Norwegian who continues without winning in a row in the same tournament.

Zandschulp faces Finland’s Emil Ruusuvuori in the Round of 16.
