GSTAAD, Switzerland – [3] Casper Ruud [NOR] won his third ATP title of the season and second in as many weeks with a straight-set victory over Hugo Gaston in the finals of the Swiss Open.

This was Ruud’s 7th-straight victory after winning the Swiss Open in Nordea last weekend. It was also Ruud’s 24th win on clay in 2021, which leads the Tour.
