Holger Rune vs Gael Monfils – Match Predictions

Rune -6.5

Rune is one of the uprising stars at the moment, something that Monfils was 15 years ago. There is a huge gap in the physical preparation between the two players and that will be obvious from the very beginning of the match. Rune was not on top of his game in the opening round against Eubanks, who managed to win a set even though he has barely played on clay courts. However, Rune will pick up his game and will not give Monfils any chances, which will lead to a comfortable win covering the -6.5 games spread.

Rune to win and total under 36.5

There is no doubt that Rune will win this one. Monfils simply cannot recover from the long match he had against Baez in the opening round and will not be even close to winning a set against the youngster.

Holger Rune vs Gael Monfils Preview

Gael Monfils has been one of the fan favorites of Roland Garoos for more than a decade. His form is not promising at all but he will definitely put on a show against Holger Rune.

Holger Rune

Rune is one of the rising stars on the ATP tour and probably one of the players that will be in the run for the next no. 1. The 20-year-old enjoys his highest ranking being 6th at the moment. He is 28-10 for the season and 14-3 on clay. Rune is coming off a 6-4, 3-6, 7-6, 6-2 win over Christopher Eubanks in the opening round. Earlier this year, Rune won the tournament in Munich and also made it to the finals in Rome and Monte Carlo. This is his second time playing at Roland Garros after making it to the quarterfinals last year.

Gael Monfils

Monfils is far from the players he was not that long ago as he is ranked at no. 394 at the moment. The former no. 6 is 2-7 for the season and 2-4 on clay. Once again, he won the hearts of the home crowd with the opening round win against Sebastian Baez. The match lasted 3 hours and 51 minutes, and Monfils won 3-6, 6-3, 7-5, 1-6, 7-5, and barely stood on his legs at the end. Monfils has no significant result this season, and his best result at the French Open was the semifinal in 2008.
