The match

Fourth seed Casper Ruud and sixth seed Holger Rune will renew their rivalry at the French Open quarterfinals on Wednesday. These two met last month in Rome and Rune defeated Ruud on the way to his third final of the season. Coming to this round, Rune had to sweat it out, beating Francisco Cerundolo in five sets after rising from 2-0 down. The fourth-round win allowed him to equal his best result at Roland Garros achieved last season on his debut. The current world number five has leapfrogged Ruud in the live ranking with his performances in Paris. He will seek a win here against the player who eliminated him from this round last season. Rune’s win over Ruud in Rome was his first in five attempts and will definitely build his confidence here.

On the flipside, Casper Ruud will derive confidence in having defeated Rune four times in their last five encounters. All their five meetings have coincidentally taken place on clay. The Norwegian made it to the final here last season and will target going one better. Ruud struggled with his form at the start of the season but upon switching to clay, he has done much better. He currently has a record of 20 wins and 11 losses with 15 of his victories coming on clay. To reach this round he defeated Nicolas Jarry in straight sets, his second 3-0 win in Paris so far. Ruud is currently ranked sixth in the live ranking, a two-place drop after losing 840 ranking points. Advancing from this tie will set up a semifinal showdown with either 22nd seed Alexander Zverev or the unseeded Tomas Etcheverry.

Key Statistics

  • Ruud has four wins in five encounters with Rune
  • All four of Ruud’s victories have been on clay
  • Ruud has won 15 of the 20 matches he has played on clay so far
  • Three of Rune’s 10 losses so far have come on clay
  • The last two encounters between Ruud and Rune have needed one extra set to conclude

The bet of our experts

Ruud has dominated this fixture and was impressive in the last round. However, Rune won the last time the two met and will make it difficult for Ruud here. Our prediction for Holger Rune v Casper Ruud is for Ruud to win but it should take at least four sets to do so.
