Dominic Thiem vs Holger Rune – Match Predictions
Under 21.5 Games
Thiem overcame a struggling Richard Gasquet to book his place in the second round. The Austrian has struggled to give his best on the tour in 2023 and his Monte Carlo Aspirations will come to a swift halt at the hands of Rune. The 19-year-old should make little work of the former US Open champion who has bowed out of six tournaments at the first hurdle in 2023.
2-0 to Holger Rune
The Dane will be looking to utilize his power ground strokes and superior agility. It should be enough to tame Thiem, who has lost his mojo on the clay court and was knocked out of four clay court competitions without making a dent and only had four wins this season. Only three of his 14 fixtures involving Rune have seen 3 sets and it looks likely the pattern will be followed with a straight-sets defeat.
Dominic Thiem 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.
The Austrian professional tennis player has been woeful in 2023. Adept on the clay court to be called a specialist, he has failed to live up to his lofty standards. He has had considerable success throughout his career, winning the 2020 US Open and making it to the French Open final on three occasions. His glory days seem to be in the rearview mirror as he lost in the first round of five consecutive tournaments. However, he managed to break this streak by reaching the quarterfinals of the Estoril Open.
The 19-year-old Danish tennis prodigy has been climbing the ranks since his first professional tournament in 2019. At the moment, he is ranked 9th in the world, making him one of the youngest players in the top 10 alongside Carlos Alcaraz. He has had starts in prestigious tournaments like the Miami Open, Montpellier and Acapulco, but has not gone the distance in any of them yet. However, with his talent, determination and ambition, Rune will look to make his mark at the Monte Carlo Masters.
