Our favourite Holger Rune vs Sebastian Baez – match predictions

Rune seeks to break free from a recent slump and defend his runner-up points from last year, while Baez aims to capitalize on newfound momentum and improve his dismal indoor hardcourt record. This clash promises to be a battle of determination, resurgence, and seizing opportunities.

Over 22.5 Games @ 9/10 (1.90)

The previous three meetings between Rune and Baez have been straight forward affairs, finishing in two sets. All of these matches were on Baez’s preferred clay courts and the odds favour Rune in the indoor hardcourts. The Dane recently ended his losing streak with a hard-fought win over Miomir Kecmanovic but needed 28 games to power through. As the two formidable opponents meet again, we expect a long battle with at least 22.5 games being played.

2-1 to Holger Rune @ 3/1 (4.00)

The prior meetings have not gone into overtime with straight-set victories registered by them. Rune is the favourite in this match-up but has lost 9 of his 11 matches since his Wimbledon exit. Baez will like the Dane’s form as he battles on his less preferred indoor hard courts. The Argentine will deliver a blow as he leads their h2h battles 2-1 but will eventually come up short as Rune makes it 2-2 with a deciding set victory.

Before Basel, the Argentine had struggled, winning only two out of ten matches on this surface, with none at the main tour level.
