George Loffhagen vs Holger Rune – Match Predictions
Under 30.5 Games
Despite it being an exhibition fixture, Rune made little work of two-time Wimbledon winner, Andy Murray in straight sets. He only required 20 games against him. His win against Ryan Peniston also did not require him to work overtime to secure a result. With Loffhagen arriving n the back of three three-set outings, British fans will hope for a fight by their native. However, Loffhagen has not played a player of Rune’s pedigree and given the disparity between the two, we believe it will be a swift execution with less than 30.5 games on show.
3-0 to Holger Rune
Given the disparity in their playing ability and current form, it is difficult to see Rune being upset in this duel. The Dane’s four wins on the surface have come in straight sets and it seems a similar result is to follow him against Loffhagen. Confidence increases in the 19-year-old’s abilities as he has made little work of players ranked far higher than the British wild card and should have enough in the tank to get past him with ease.
