Holger Rune against Hugo Gaston head to head
You have never played.
Rune ruins other players
Holger Rune is playing a fabulous event so far, beating some pretty tricky players. His demolition of Denis Shapoavlov drew a lot of attention because it was impressive and unbelievable in the sense that the Canadian played very badly.
Rune continued this match with another solid win over Henri Laaksonen. The Swiss proved to be a tougher opponent simply by playing better than Shapovalov. Rune improved his game every round, which is something to remember. He doesn’t play overly aggressively, 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 Frenchman likes to attack and will try that. A factor for Rune will be the crowd worshiping Gaston, so he needs to find a way to stay calm.
He’ll need his serve too and he didn’t really have that against Shapovalov. It resurfaced against the Swiss player and he’ll need it again.
Gaston the fan favorite
Hugo Gaston has been a crowd favorite at the French Open for some time. A few years ago he had a big break when he defeated some players including Thiem and Wawrinka which brought him popularity. That crazy atmosphere propelled him past Alex de Minaur on lap one.
He then easily defeated Pedro Cachin by simply outplaying him. Gaston plays much better on home soil and that has a lot to do with the French crowd.
He loves to play in front of them because they absolutely love them. The atmosphere becomes a football atmosphere with the roar and all. He also likes to play for the crowd with crazy drops and lobs and stuff. He had more winners than Cachin but fewer than de Minaur. To be fair, most of that came from serves for de Minaur.
It’s clear Gaston will be the more aggressive in this matchup and if he can hit more winners than make mistakes then the crowd should have enough for him.
Rune v Gaston prediction and tip
This should be an exciting and very fun match for both players. Both are young and both will be desperate to win this race. Gaston is supported by the crowd and is expected to face the situation. Both will win at least one set as Rune can have problems with the crowd.
He struggled with crowds in South America, particularly in Argentina when he faced Sebastian Baez. Rune is the better player but overall and on clay and he’s been far better than Gaston this season. If you think he can handle the pressure, vote for him. I see him win as well as lose.
The French Open 2022 will be held from May 22nd to June 5th. You can watch and bet on these games here. Get your latest premium tennis predictions here.
