Casper Ruud has a career-high singles ranking of world No. 2 achieved on 12 September 2022, making him the highest-ranked Norwegian tennis player in history. He has won nine ATP Tour singles titles. He is the first Norwegian man to win an ATP singles title, to reach major finals (at the 2022 French and US Opens), to reach a Masters 1000 final, and to enter the top 20 in the ATP rankings.
Jin has always shown appreciation for various sports like golf and tennis, but the latter is his favorite sport and often takes training from a famous Korean tennis coach regularly.
Another member spotted supporting a sport was Suga who went to Japan to meet with Stephen Curry.
