This is the furthest in a major that Ruud has advanced in his career as he makes his semifinal debut and hopes to get to his first finals. Previously his best finish was in the 2021 Australian Open, when he advanced to the fourth round.
In their career head-to-head matches, Ruud has a 2-0 lead in the series, winning in earlier rounds in smaller tournaments.
They met once on clay in 2020 in Rome, where Ruud won in straight sets but in a very competitive tiebreaker set to close out the match.
Čilić won the 2014 US Open and made it to the finals in Wimbledon (2017) and the Australian Open (2018) as he chases his second major win today.
Regardless of who wins today, the player that advances will make personal history and set up a potentially epic final match at Roland Garros.
