Novak Djokovic vs Holger Rune: Match Preview

Novak Djokovic has been in some serious form this season. The 36-year-old Serbian has won three of the four Grand Slam titles and also a few Masters (the famous one in Cincinnati). The Serbian also boasts of the record for winning the most number of titles (six). However, Djokovic’s quest for a seventh title was put to rest by Rune last year.

Now, as the two players meet, Djokovic will have the defeat in last year’s final on his mind. The Serbian has started well here. While the Serbian eased past Tomas Martin Etcheverry in his second-round match, Djokovic earned a hard-fought victory against Tallon Griekspoor. Now, he has a chance to take down Rune who is also coming on the back of two impressive wins.

The Danish ace defeated Dominic Thiem in straight sets (6-4, 6-2) in the second round. Meanwhile, Rune took down Daniel Altmaier in straight sets of 6-3, 6-3 in the third round. The Dane seems to have found his lost mojo. Rune has put down the disappointments behind him and working with his new coaching team with Boris Becker on his aim to qualify for the ATP Finals.

Novak Djokovic vs Holger Rune: Match Prediction

While Novak Djokovic has reigned supreme against the best of his opponents this season, he has found it a tad tough against Holger Rune. The Dane has got the best out of the Serbian legend in their last two meetings.

While Rune beat Djokovic 3-6, 6-3, 7-5 in the 2022 Paris Masters Final, the Danish toppled the Serbian ace 6-2, 4-6, 6-2 in Rome earlier this year. The head-to-head record between the two players stands at 2-1 in Rune’s favor. Now, it will be interesting to see if Rune manages to extend the lead or if Djokovic will settle the scores from last year. The 24-time Grand Slam winner might just beat Rune, considering how Djokovic has played throughout the year, on hard courts.
