Holger Rune v Hugo Gaston Head to Head
They never played before.
Rune Ruining Other Players
Holger Rune is playing a fabulous event so far taking down players that are rather tricky. His dismantling of Denis Shapoavlov turned many heads because it was with impressive and incredible in the sense that the Canadian played very badly.
Rune followed up that match with another solid win over Henri Laaksonen. The Swiss player proved tougher opposition simply by playing better than Shapovalov. Rune upped his game in each round which is something to remember. He doesn’t play overly aggressive but he covers the court so well with his movement.
He attacks when he can but mostly relies on his opponent making mistakes. That can work against Gaston because the French player likes to attack and will try to do that. One factor for Rune will be the crowd that adores Gaston so he will need to find a way to stay calm.
He will also need his serve and he did not really have it against Shapovalov. It reappeared against the Swiss player and he will need it again.
Gaston the Fan Favourite
Hugo Gaston has been a crowd favourite at the French Open for a while now. He made a huge breakout a couple of years ago besting a couple of players including Thiem and Wawrinka which gained him popularity. That mad atmosphere propelled him past Alex de Minaur in round one.
He then bested Pedro Cachin with ease simply outplaying him. Gaston plays much better on native soil and that has a lot to do with the French crowd.
He loves playing in front of them because they absolutely love them. The atmosphere becomes a football one with the roars and everything. He likes to play for the crowd as well with crazy drops shots and lobs and stuff. He had more winners than Cachin but less than de Minaur. To be fair, most of those came from serves for de Minaur.
It’s clear that Gaston will be the more aggressive one in this matchup and if he can hit more winners than commit mistakes he should have enough thanks to the crowd.
Rune v Gaston Prediction and Tip
This should be an exciting and very fun match for both players. Both are young and both will want to win this one desperately. Gaston will be backed by the crowd and expect him to rise to the occasion. Both will win at least one set because Rune can have trouble with the crowd.
He struggled with crowds in South America especially in Argentina when facing Sebastian Baez. Rune is the better player but overall and on clay and he’s been far better this season than Gaston. If you believe he can handle the pressure choose him. I can see him both winning and losing this one.
