Daniil Medvedev vs Holger Rune – Match Predictions

2-1 to Daniil Medvedev

Holger Rune was afforded an extra day’s rest after Matteo Berrettini pulled out. The Danish ace is not one to be trifled with but it is difficult to favour him over Daniil Medvedev. The Russian is in the form of his life and in search of a sixth successive final on the ATP tour. He was made to work hard by Alexander Zverev and it will play a part in this game as well. Playing all those games will have its impact and expect a three-set encounter between the two, one that eventually finishes in Medvedev’s favour.

Over 21.5 Games

Medvedev was on the court for over three hours against Zverev. The margin between the two was slim as they both converted six break points, out of 13 for the Russian and 11 for the German. Rune would have surely taken some pointers and will look to profit the depleted tank of Medvedev. Against Dominic Thiem he was impervious, only allowing two serve break opportunities while capitalizing on six of the nine that were presented to him. Based on this, we are backing an Over 21.5 Games selection in this quarter-final duel.

Daniil Medvedev 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.

Daniil Medvedev

For a moment it seemed Zeverev will do the unthinkable and knock Medvedev out before the quarter-finals. The Russian kept his cool, saved two match points in the third set and delivered the knockout blow. He is standing on the precipice of history, one that sets him apart from the greats of his era. A sixth successive tournament final has not been imagined but neither was an appearance in five finals but Medvedev has made it happen.

Holger Rune

The ninth-ranked Dane will not be aware of the gravity of the situation. Not only is a place in the semi-finals on the line but the 19-year-old will become a footnote in history books for stopping Daniil Medvedev’s record-breaking path to six successive finals. Rune will have to be on his best to deny the Russian and has plenty of takeaways from Zeverev’s shortcomings. His age allows him to discard the noise, making it an exciting duel for fans and neutrals alike.
