Matteo Berrettini vs Holger Rune – Match Predictions

Holger Rune To Win

Rune will be looking to take advantage of Berrettini’s vulnerability on clay and continue to forge his part forward. Francisco Cerundolo highlighted the Italian’s weaknesses, shaving the first set from him but could not hold Berrettini down. Rune is a different beast altogether. He did not give clay court specialist Dominic Thiem any room and will have similar designs for the 33-ranked challenger. Expect the 19-year-old Dane to cruise to another victory.

2-1 to Holger Rune

Berretini showcased his class against Cerundolo with his come-from-behind victory. He will have to give a similar display against the upcoming Rune. The Dane does not have the same experience as him but his powerful groundstrokes and workhorse stamina should help him in the later rounds. Rune does not fancy the clay court as much and had lost in the first round of his last three clay tournaments. Based on this, we are backing a long encounter, one that sees blows changed and the scoreboard to read 2-1 at its conclusion.

Matteo Berrettini vs Holger Rune Preview

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in Monte Carlo Masters.

Matteo Berrettini

The 27-year-old was made to work hard by Cerundolo and has a tougher assignment in the next round. He did defeat the Dane in their encounter in Indian Wells and will look on their meeting to find inspiration. It will not be easy given his recent form. He had to save 13 breakpoints to survive against the Argentine in the second round and similar mistakes cannot be made against the lethal Rune.

Holger Rune

Rune will want to put his sub-par performances in Indian Wells and Miami Open behind him. The 8th seed was supposed to fight for the title or at least make the quarter-finals but failed in his bid at each time of asking. Now in the clay court turn of the ATP tour, he has started brightly. He only allowed two breakpoint opportunities to Dominic Thiem and saved them on both occasions. Moreover, he broke the Austrian’s serve six times and will hope to continue in a similar fashion.
