Ryan Peniston vs Holger Rune – Match Predictions

Holger Rune is the second favorite to win the Queen’s Club Championships but the lack of experience on grass court may take its toll.

Ryan Peniston +3.5 games

There is no question that Rune is much better than Peniston but the surface at the Queen’s Club Championships can make all the difference. Rune has played a total of four matches on grass in his career and the opening round win was his first ever on this surface. Peniston is not even in the Top 200 players on the tour, but on the London’s grass he can be competitive against Rune. A win would be a real sensation but Peniston can definitely cover the +3.5 games spread.

Over 22.5 games

Rune is too good of a player at the moment to have any problems on his serve against Peniston. The British player would be under a lot of pressure but with the support of the home crowd, he will find a way to stay long in this match that will go over 22.5 games in total.
