Taylor Fritz vs Holger Rune prediction and odds: Indian Wells 2024

Taylor Fritz vs Holger Rune prediction and odds: Indian Wells 2024

While the fourth round matches in the top half are scheduled for March 12th, the bottom half games are set for March 13th. That said, I’ve come up with several tennis predictions today in relation to the match between Fritz and Rune. It should be a great game, and I’ve got a couple of high value markets for you to check out.

Our favourite Taylor Fritz vs Holger Rune predictions

Holger Rune is the higher-ranked player of these two at 7 in the world. This makes him higher seeded than Fritz too, as identified in my original Indian Wells 2024 preview. But Fritz isn’t far behind at 12 in the world, and the American has beaten Rune in recent times in similar conditions. So, what does this mean for my predictions?

Fritz to win @ 13/20 (1.65)

I’ve been impressed with Fritz’s form in Indian Wells so far. He dismantled the 19th seed, Baez, in the previous round, and he seemed at ease with the expectations of the home fans. Should he be as settled against Rune, I believe he will beat the Dane for the second time in his career.

Fritz -1.5 games handicap @ 4/5 (1.80)

I’m going for a -1.5 games handicap for Fritz here because I think that he will win the match, first and foremost. To add to that, Rune will struggle to break Fritz’s serve, while the conditions actually suit Taylor Fritz from a return of serve perspective. Combined, this suggests this market could be a winner.

Can Fritz continue towards his quest for a second BNP Paribas Open title against Rune?

Fritz has won this tournament before, and he has the edge against Rune in the head-to-head department. But the following previews show just how tight this game could be.

At 12 in the world, Fritz is clearly one of the best in the business. This was the tournament where he really made his breakthrough a few years back too, so he’s shown he can produce the goods on home soil. His game matches well against Rune’s in the humidity of Indian Wells too, indicating he can win here.

Holger Rune preview

Rune is one of the most talented guys out there – no question. But he still struggles to manage his emotions in these bigger matches, and he can go off the boil when things aren’t going his way. Lastly, when he played Fritz in 2022, he won just 7 games before going down in straight sets.

Fritz vs Rune head to head

Given their close proximity in ranking, you’d assume these two have played multiple times. But they’ve placed just the once, and Fritz won this 2022 encounter in straight sets, as played at the Miami Open.
