For the longest of time, tennis has been the life of Casper Ruud. Born to a Norwegian tennis star, he wanted to be like his father and his father obliged, training him in hopes of one day bringing a Grand Slam to the country. So, from school to tennis practice with dad, Casper lived a structured life and fruits of that labor is coming to bear now.
But all that training also meant the player was removed from most distractions in a young man's life.

The Norwegian posted pictures of the couple in London and Paris with a red heart in the caption which was reciprocated by Maria in the comment section.
A few months later the beautiful couple appeared again on his Instagram, this time in March which Casper was playing in the United States. Another picture showed the duo in Italy and the next one was at Maria's sister's wedding. In 2019 there were few more pictures of the lovebirds but then the pictures started to slow down.
While most girlfriends and wives of tennis stars themselves become Instagram celebrity. Their lives are also there for consumption, that is not the case for Maria who has a close to a thousand followers on the image sharing platform and her account is private. She does not write anything in the comment section of Casper's pictures, posting emojis from time to time, but other than that she keeps a relatively low profile.
After the pandemic began and all spot was postponed, the player said he was spending time with his family and girlfriend. "I hope everyone is doing well during these tough times! I just moved into a new apartment here in Oslo, so that's been quite a project. It's actually been pretty busy with a lot going on, and I've made sure to spend time with my family, friends and girlfriend," Casper said.

Casper Ruud is Through to Monte Carlo Masters Semi Final
With an up and down performance in France, Casper managed to fight off Carreño Busta in three sets. But Fabio Fognini posed a not too difficult task in the quarter final. The player won the contest in straight sets and made a difficult task look relatively easy.
The same form is probably what the player is expecting from himself in the semis. Monte Carlo has been a good place for him this year and there is a chance he may go all the way to the finals. But it all hinges on Casper being mindful of his tendency to throw away matches when higher stakes are involved.
Young Casper Ruud has shown a lot of potential in the past and now is the time to turn that potential into a success story. One title is never enough and in Mote Carlo his family and girlfriend will be hoping for a happier outcome for the talented Norwegian.
