Surprise or reality? Holger Rune he crossed again in the way of Novak Djokovic and this time he eliminated him in the Quarterfinals of the Rome Masters 1000a tournament where Nole had reached the Semifinals consecutively since 2014. The match ended 2-6, 6-4 and 6-2 in favor of the Nordic.
It seems that the still number 1 in the world has a new executioner in tennis. The 20-year-old Dane beat Nole once again in a tournament where the Serbian started as the wide favourite; the first time it happened in the Masters of Pariswhere the man born in Gentofte, Denmark, beat Djokovic in three sets in the Final.
Holger Rune took advantage of the Serbian’s weak and error-filled start to win the first set. After medical attention and a lengthy rain interruption, Nole regained some of his game and took the second roll, however, the young Dane broke Novak’s serve twice to seize an almost unassailable 4-lead. 0 to define the course of the game.
“It is a great victory for me. I did it last year in Paris too, but every game is a big challenge for me when I play Novak. It’s one of the greatest to ever play the game. I knew I had to be at my best. I said it yesterday and I said it today,” Rune noted.
After this defeat, Novak will arrive at Roland Garros after a discreet tour on clay where he has achieved a 5-3 balance, in addition, this Monday he will give up the first rung of the world ranking to the Spanish Balearic Islands Carlos Alcaraz.
