Marton Fucsovics vs Holger Rune Match Predictions

Fucsovics +3.5

As one of the most experienced players in the round of 64 at the Miami Open, Fucsovics is no pushover. The Hungarian is known for his athleticism, going for long exchanges and running all over the baseline. It will prove to be an interesting challenge for Rune’s aggressive style.

In this clash, Fucsovics will probably have a few opportunities to keep the match close. Rune is still the undeniable favorite, but Fucsovics could very well take a serve game or two out of the young Dane and cover the line.

Over 21.5 Games

This match could very well go the distance, but even a 12-game set or a tie break would also be enough to cover the line. Again, Fucsovics has a chance to make this one a lot closer, and bookmakers seemingly agree with this, given the lines available for the match.

The Hungarian pulled off two impressive upsets at Indian Wells one week ago, and is in very good form heading into this encounter. It’s perfectly possible for this match to go on for 22 games – or even longer.

Marton Fucsovics vs Holger Rune Preview

Let’s take a look at what Fucsovics and Holger Rune have done to get into the round of 64:

Marton Fucsovics

The 31-year old Hungarian is coming off a very good summer. Fucsovics kicked off the year in style, winning the Canberra Challenger. He followed it up with an impressive showing at the Australian Open, forcing a thrilling five setter against Jannik Sinner in the round of 32.

Last week in Indian Wells, Fucsovics went on an impressive run. The veteran took down J.J. Wolf, ATP number 18 Alex de Minaur and Alex Molcan on his way to a round of 16 appearance, dropping only one set along the way. Fucsovics is playing close to his best right now.

Holger Rune

The 19-year old prodigy has enjoyed a solid start to the year. Rune started off with a week 2 appearance in Melbourne, followed by a semifinal appearance in Marseille. Struggling with an injured wrist, the Dane retired from the second round in Rotterdam, but came back in Acapulco to reach the semifinals again.

Rune had a disappointing showing at the Indian Wells Masters 1000 last week, dropping out to the seemingly ageless Stan Wawrinka in the second round. The young Dane will try to bounce back this week in Miami.

Marton Fucsovics vs Holger Rune Head to Head
