Alcaraz vs Rune – Overall Head to Head Record
To get right to it, the head to head for these guys going into the Wimbledon 2023 quarter-finals sits at 1-1. Then again, the single win for Holger Rune was earned through a mid-match retirement from Carlos Alcaraz. So some might argue that this victory wasn’t technically an official win, although Rune was one set up at the time and the withdrawal came during the second set tie-break. However, regardless of personal opinions, the official Rune vs Alcaraz head to head is fixed at one win for each player.
As for the respective matches that have contributed to this head-to-head record, you can find the details for both below.
