Casper Ruud roasted his sister Charlotte and cousin Josefine after their runway walk attempt at the United Cup was filmed and posted online. 

On the first day of 2024, Norway was in action at the United Cup. While making their way onto Ken Rosewall Arena, Charlotte and Josefine started practicing their model walks.

In the footage posted, it is clear that Charlotte and Josefine initially weren't aware that they were being filmed. Only when they got a bit closer, they realized that they were being filmed and that's when they delivered a stunned reaction.

Reacting to the video on X, Ruud wrote: "Omg..."

Ruud added a bit more, poking fun at his sister and cousin by posting a gif. 

Ruud: Now I have something to use when I want to make them blush

The viral moment was also posted by the ATP's account on Instagram. In the comment section, Ruud funnily thanked the ATP for posting it.

"Thank you for this. Now I have an ace up my sleeve whenever I want to make them blush," Ruud commented.

Meanwhile, Ruud led Norway to a win over Croatia on Monday. In his singles match, Ruud defeated Borna Coric 6-4 6-1. But after Malene Helgo lost to Donna Vekic, the Norway and Croatia tie had to be decided in a mixed doubles match. In the mixed doubles match, Ruud returned to the court as he and Ulrikke Eikeri edged out Coric and Vekic 6-2 3-6 10-7.

After helping Norway seal a win over Croatia, Ruud was asked about his sister and cousin's runway walk. 

“They like to be around the tournaments and show up, like to sit in the box. That’s their favorite thing to do. They were courtside with us. This is not typical for them to do these things. I think they were a bit embarrassed. I saw them. They were blushing and all red on their faces," Ruud said afterward in his press.
