Holger Rune vs Richard Gasquet Prediction and Odds: Hopman Cup 2023

Switzerland has little chance of progressing in the Hopman Cup; their fate is in the hands of France. If Richard Gasquet defeats Holger Rune, Switzerland will have no chance of reaching the final.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Holger Rune vs Richard Gasquet – Match Predictions

Get the top daily tennis predictions for Holger Rune vs Richard Gasquet at the Hopman Cup 2023.

Rune to Win 2-0

The French tennis player has won most of his matches against opponents who have very poor ATP rankings. Most of the times he has faced top ten players, Gasquet has lost.

Rune lost the day before but he rarely loses two matches in a row. My prediction is that the Danish player will make amends for his dismal performance on day 1 and win in straight sets.

First Set after Two Games: 1-1

In their previous meeting, Rune only allowed one serve in the first set but converted none of them. Gasquet has little chance of victory, but he has enough experience to provide the opposition.

Each player will almost certainly defend his first serve quite effectively. So, after two games in the first set, the score should be 1-1.

Holger Rune

The Danish tennis player could not save the Swiss team in the Hopman Cup, suffering a double defeat. After his partner Clara Tauson was defeated by Celine Naef, Holger needed to win to even the series.

Then Holger Rune faced Leandro Riedi in his match. Surprisingly, the 20-year-old did not have his greatest day and fell in straight sets. The mixed doubles match was played at the end of the day, and the Tauson-Rune duo lost yet again.

Richard Gasquet

The Frenchman will make his 2023 Hopman Cup debut. The veteran recently lost in the final of the San Benedetto Challenger to Benoit Paire.

Gasquet’s play has been uneven this season. He has 19 wins and 20 loses this season. His most recent big tournament appearance came at Wimbledon, where he was eliminated in the first round.

Rune vs Gasquet Head to Head

This will be the 37-year-old’s first meeting with Holger Rune, one of tennis’s most promising young players. Richard Gasquet’s highest ranking in the ATP was number 7. Rune has already overcome it, and he is now ranked sixth.

This season, the Danish tennis star had nearly twice as many wins as his opponent. It will be intriguing to watch if the young player’s experience or bravery wins out.
