After the match in Montreal, Emil Ruusuvuori pays admiration for Stan Wawrinka

Emil Ruusuvuori stated that he has a great deal of respect for Stan Wawrinka and that playing and defeating the three-time Grand Slam champion was a dream come true. Ruusuvuori defeated Wawrinka on Monday in three sets, 6-3 3-6 6-3, to advance to the second round of the Montreal tournament.

It was their first encounter with one another. Wawrinka, who underwent foot surgery in March, is already 37, but Ruusuvuori hopes to see him on the Tour for at least a little while more. According to the ATP website, Ruusuvuori remarked after the game, “I grew up watching Stan and have enormous respect for this guy.”

“I hope he can continue and bring this level since he is still such a fierce competitor and has inspired so many people. This match was fantastic, and it was a dream come true for me.

Next, Ruusuvuori performs as Hubert Hurkacz.

After defeating a former top-10 player in his Montreal debut, Ruusuvuori goes up against Hurkacz, who is currently ranked in the top 10.

Hurkacz received a bye in the opening round of the competition as the eighth seed in the Montreal main draw. In the second round of the Montreal tournament, Ruusuvuori and Hurkacz will clash once more. It’s interesting to note that the two only just got together in Washington.

Ruusuvuori unexpectedly prevailed 6-4 7-6 (3) in their first-ever encounter. After the Washington setback, Hurkacz is likely to be quite eager to get retribution, according to Ruusuvuori. “Last week, it was a good match for me, but not the best from him.

I have no doubt that he will attend class and learn “Regarding facing Hurkacz, Ruusuvuori stated. “He is a player in the Top 10, therefore I will have to play at the top of my game to defeat him. Hurkacz hasn’t been performing well lately; after dropping his first matches at Wimbledon and Washington, he’s currently on a two-match losing streak. It will be interesting to see if Ruusuvuori can defeat Hurkacz twice in a row.
