Casper Ruud’s girlfriend and sister raise eyebrows, US Open fans were engrossed by the 2022 US Open final between Casper Ruud and Carlos Alcaraz – both on and off the court!
Ruud went down to Carlos Alcaraz in a 4 sets duel at Flushing Meadows – his 2nd Grand Slam final downfall of the year – but the limelight was stolen by his Caroline Ruud (Casper Ruud’s sister) and Maria Galligani (Casper Ruud’s girlfriend) cheering him on from the stands.
Sister Caroline was seen in the crowd looking spectacular in a red dress.
She was joined by the Casper Ruud’s partner Maria Galligani – who impressed in a black ensemble.
Like Ruud, Galligani is Norwegian – and the couple have reportedly been dating since 2018.
She is apparently studying for a Master’s in psychology at the University of Southern Denmark.
It is not known what Caroline Ruud does for work but she is frequently spotted cheering on her brother at tennis tournaments.
She was at Roland Garros as the 23-year-old Casper Ruud made his first ever Grand Slam final in the French Open, losing to childhood hero and mentor Rafael Nadal.
Ruud is from a tennis crazy household. His younger sister, Charlotte, is also training to be a tennis player.
Their father, Christian, was an ex-professional player who touched a profession high of world number Number 39. He made the 1997 Australian Open into the pre quarter finals.
Ruud’s rise to eminence has been enthused by Rafael Nadal and he trained at the legend’s academy in Mallorca when he was a youngster.
Casper Ruud is just about beginning to get used to Grand Slam finals now.
His first Grand Slam final appearance was against his mentor Nadal where the Spaniard won his 14th French Open title, Ruud was heard saying: “We all know what a champ you are. I got to feel what it is to be a Nadal opponent in a final. I’m not the first prey. You took me into your tennis academy. You are a true encouragement to all aspiring tennis players around the world.”
