Who is US Open star Casper Ruud’s girlfriend Maria Galligani?
CASPER RUUD fell short against former mentor Rafael Nadal in the French Open final.
But he has recovered to star at the US Open in New York, with partner Maria Galligani in the stands.
Ruud has spoken about his past training at the Nadal Academy as a youngster, before going on to face his teacher.
Prior to the French Open final, Ruud said about Nadal: “I will try to figure something else out other than in the practice, how to beat him. I will just enjoy the moment.
“This is a special occasion for both of us. He’s playing for his 22nd [Grand Slam]. I’m playing for my first.”
Nadal had said about Ruud: “I think in the academy we were able to help him a little bit during this period of time.
“But more than another thing it’s about I like to see the good person achieving his dreams.

“For me, Casper is one of the candidates for winning in every clay-court event that he’s playing. He’s one of the clear favourites. He’s not a big surprise at all.”

What was the French Open final result?
