Casper Ruud vs. Holger Rune Prediction, Tips and Odds – Jun. 1, 2022 20:45 CET
Thanks to a great play in the fourth round of Roland Garros, Casper Ruud, and Holger Rune will meet in the Scandinavian derby in the quarterfinals of the French Open.
And while the victory of the Norwegian over Hubert Hurkacz is not a big surprise, the talented Dane made a sensation by eliminating the fourth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas. Can Rune achieve another great victory and qualify for the semifinals?
Casper Ruud’s game has oscillated at this year’s Roland Garros, but the Norwegian tennis player has been winning and that’s the most important thing. So far, he has won only one match without losing a set, against Ruusuvuori in the second round. Besides him, he beat Tsonga 3-1 in the first, Sonego 3-2 in the third, and Hurkacz 3-1 in the fourth round.
Casper Ruud thus became the first player from Norway to qualify in the last eight. The Norwegian has continued to play well on clay this season, having won the tournament in Geneva. In addition, he lost in the semifinals of the Masters in Rome to Novak Djokovic, but his game against the best-ranked tennis player in the world was satisfactory.
He was quite reliable in the clash against Hurkacz and it was his best performance at this year’s French Open. He served well, his moves were good, and he anticipated the opponent’s serve well. He defeated the Pole quite easily, although his opponent has played well on this surface this season.
23yo Casper Ruud, world number 8, is into the QFs of a Grand Slam for the first time in his career.
6-2, 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 over Hubert Hurkacz to reach the last 8 at #RolandGarros, awaits Rune or Tsitsipas…
Ruud now won his last 8 matches and 11 of his last 12.

Holger Rune is the most pleasant surprise in Paris this season. The way he played against Stefanos Tsitsipas is worthy of great admiration. He bravely opposed the favored rival throughout the match and deservedly achieved the biggest victory in his short professional career.
This Danish tennis player was not only masterful against the Greek. He was dominant in the first three rounds of the tournament, and he did not lose a single set. Rune eliminated the 14th seed Shapovalov in the first round, which was also a surprise considering the Canadian’s ranking. Then he had somewhat easier tasks in the second and third rounds against Laaksonen and Gaston.
The Dane is extremely disciplined and calm during the match. He forces an aggressive style of tennis and likes to dictate the pace during the match. Since he is still very young, he is prone to mistakes, but they do not disturb him, and he quickly focuses on the next point.
Great victory against a top player who has always been an inspiration for me @steftsitsipas 👏🏼👏🏼

Casper Ruud vs Holger Rune Prediction
Casper Ruud and Holger Rune have already played one match in Monte Carlo this season. It was an even and uncertain match, and the Norwegian won 2-0 (7-5, 7-6).
We are of the opinion that the quarterfinal clash at Roland Garros will be similar to the last one, but we believe that the winner this time will be the other player. We expect that the Dane will show again that the future of this sport is bright.
Prediction: Holger Rune
