To defeat Nadal and Sabatini, Ruud teams up with a Grand Slam victor.

Casper Ruud made a decision regarding his partner for the South American exhibition trip that he and Rafael Nadal planned. The Australian Open champion and former world number one in doubles Gisela Dulko will be the Norwegian’s partner.

During the exhibition tour, Rafael Nadal and Gabriela Sabatini will square off against Ruud and Dulko. “I’m @rafaelnadal and this is @sabatinigaby. I decided to invite @giseladulko right away to play with me and, of course, defeat you after reading fan comments on your recent post “Posted on Instagram was Ruud.

Where do Nadal and Ruud make their first stop?

In November, Casper Ruud accepted Rafael Nadal‘s invitation to travel with him on an exhibition tour of South America.

On Instagram, where they spoke in Spanish, Nadal and Ruud announced the exhibition. “Very eager to travel with @rafaelnadal on his exhibition tour of South America in November, which kicks off on November 23 in Buenos Aires!” Ruud captioned the dialogue.

Ruud had the chance to exact revenge on Rafael after the latter defeated him in the French Open final thanks to Nadal‘s invitation.

In the Roland Garros final at the beginning of June, Ruud lost to Nadal in straight sets. At the US Open, Ruud, 23, reached his second Grand Slam final. Unfortunately for Ruud, he was denied a Grand Slam victory yet again as Carlos Alcaraz defeated him in the championship match in Flushing Meadows in four sets.

Ruud was pleased with the performance he had at Flushing Meadows, despite the fact that he did not win his maiden Grand Slam championship. “I’m pleased with the game and the past two weeks. I gave it my all. I gave everything I had on the court. Over the course of the two weeks, I probably played my best tennis on this surface.
