Ruud secures third straight ATP Tour title

Casper Ruud has become the first player since Andy Murray in 2011 to win three ATP Tour titles in three successive weeks.

The Norwegian beat Pedro Martinez 6-1 4-6 6-3 to lift the Generali Open title in Kitzbuhel, which followed wins in Bastad and Gstaad as he dominates the late-summer clay-court season.

It is a decade since Murray won in Beijing, Tokyo and Shanghai in consecutive weeks, with Ruud following suit in Europe this month.

In the United States hard-court swing, Brandon Nakashima is through to his second successive final after making it to the showpiece of the Atlanta Open.

The American was beaten by Briton Cameron Norrie in last week’s final in Los Cabos and booked another spot by beating Emil Ruusuvuori 3-6 6-4 6-3.
