Holger comes into the match after affecting a Walkover win over Matteo Berretini. Holger had won the first set 6-0 and took a game in the second set before Matteo walked out, meaning he didn’t even concede a single game till that point. Before the walkover, Rune had a 16-5 service points edge and a 12-2 receiving points advantage. Rune has become a player of high stature and he is just 19. While he has not put on many deep runs, he has become a strong player against competition that is ranked outside of the top 30. It is only a matter of time before Rune grabs an ATP title if not a Grand Slam.

Alex enters the fray after defeating Taro Daniel 6-2, 6-2 to enter the Semis. Alex had a rather underwhelming 42% first serve, an issue that is persistent. However, when he did connect with his first serve, he had a 95% win on it. Alex was as usual on-point in terms of his return game, earning a 29-18 receiving points advantage. Alex is a well-versed player at this point and has managed to be in the top-30 rankings for multiple years, having ranked as high as 15 in 2021. His service game is not elite level but his tactical responses make him a tricky match-up.

Rune and Minaur have met twice and Rune has won both of these battles. They last met in Basel in 2022 where Rune won in straight sets.

Rune has a much more explosive game than Alex and that has translated into an advantage in the head-to-head and overall. The momentum is high with both teams but I lean towards Rune to win it. However, this can be a close game.
