Indian Wells: Ruud Soaks Up the Sun and Prepares for Fils Clash

INDIAN WELLS, Calif. – With the arrival of daylight savings time, the clocks sprang forward an hour on Sunday, bringing an extra hour of sunlight to the BNP Paribas Open. The picturesque Indian Wells Tennis Garden basked in the warm glow, providing an ideal setting for Casper Ruud’s practice session.

The Norwegian star, fresh off a straight-set victory over Lukas Klein on Saturday night, spent the bulk of his practice time working on his tan with hitting partner Joachim Bjerke. The sun-drenched conditions proved too tempting to resist, as Ruud soaked up the rays while fine-tuning his game.

Ruud, the former world No. 2, is eager to build on his recent success in Los Cabos and Acapulco, where he finished runner-up in both tournaments. He will face Arthur Fils on Monday in the second round of the BNP Paribas Open, a young Frenchman who has impressed with his aggressive style of play.

The Norwegian is confident in his abilities and believes he can make a deep run in the tournament. “I’m feeling good,” Ruud said. “I’ve been playing well lately, and I’m excited to get back on the court.”

Ruud’s practice session was a mix of intensity and relaxation. He hit with precision and power, but also took time to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. The extra hour of daylight provided the perfect opportunity for him to prepare for his upcoming match and soak up the California sunshine.
