Casper Ruud is going to face the Danish player Holger rune, in the semi-finals at the Italian Open. It’s always interesting to see a player that has beaten Novak Djokovic in their next match. The question is, can he maintain his form? Was it a one-match wonder?

This time, it’s different. In 2023, a 20-year old Danish tennis player has taken the world by storm. Can he beat the Norwegian Caper Ruud, who is a formidable opponent?

Holger Rune vs Casper Ruud: Preview

Casper Ruud commanded the attention of the world last year with his incredible run in the 2022 Roland Garros Final. Rafael Nadal won the final. He impressed many when he made it to this stage. Tennis fans expected the Norwegian to be a big player in 2023. It’s been an average season for him, except for the title he won at the Estoril open. The Italian Open gave him the chance to add another title to his collection, after he reached the semi-finals.

Holger Rune, a 20-year old Danish ace is also having a great time on tour. He has been able to establish himself in 2023 with a series of deep runs, a title at Munich and consistent performances. In the past few weeks, his behavior has been scrutinized. The Danish player made sure that none of it affected him. He has remained focused on his health to win a ATP 1000 second event.

Ruud will be in for a treat if you look at their head to head clashes. In each of the four matches they have had so far, Rune has been beaten by the Spaniard. Funny enough, they have all fought on dirt. The two had previously met at the Monte Carlo Masters twice, at a Swedish event once, and at the French Open.

Holger Rune vs Casper Ruud: Prediction

If you were to compare their head-to-head, it would be clear that Ruud was the favorite. He will face a new Holger Rune. A more consistent competitor. He is coming off two three-setters that were tough and had to take a MTO his last match. It’s important to keep an eye on his fitness.

Ruud just lost a set and had a much easier journey. Rune is the only reason I’m backing him to win in three. If the youngster can stay in shape, he could give Ruud and his team a good fight.

Prediction Casper Ruud to win in three sets.
