Match Predict – Handicap (+4) for Shelton
Rune has a wrist problem, which prevented him from completing the match against Brouwer at the last tournament in Rotterdam. The injury is likely to have healed, but we still believe that the Dane is unlikely to defeat Shelton in a big way in the upcoming match.
Total Games Over 22
Rune has not shown much stability this season. As it turned out recently, Holger has been playing since the Australian Open with a slight wrist injury. The last matches involving the Danish tennis player have been struggling and we expect to see it in the upcoming match against Shelton as well.
Preliminary review and pre-match prediction for Ben Shelton vs Holger Rune
In Acapulco, Shelton will play for the first time in his career.
Ben sensationally reached the quarter-finals at the Australian Open last month.
On his way, he defeated Zhang Zhizhen (4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 2-6, 7-6), Nicolas Jarry (7-6, 7-6, 7-5), Alexei Popyrin (6-3, 7-6, 6-4) and J.J. Wolf (6-7, 6-2, 6-7, 7-6, 6-2) before losing to Tommy Paul (6-7, 3-6, 7-5, 4-6).
Remarkably, Shelton became the leader in the number of aces (85) performed at the Australian Open.
Ben’s first tournament since Melbourne was a failure. In Delray Beach, he lost straight away to Marcos Giron (4-6, 4-6).
Shelton has won eight of his last nine first-round matches.
The Danish tennis player is currently ranked 10th in the world rankings. Such a jump in the rankings is due to Holger’s good results last season, during which he won four trophies, one of which was at the Masters in Paris.
Holger was unable to play in Marseille last week due to a wrist injury.
The Dane was injured at a tournament in Rotterdam, where he failed to complete his second-round match against Gijs Brouwer (4-6, 0-4).
Before that, Rune reached the semi-finals in Montpellier. He was shut out further by Maxime Cressy (5-7, 7-6, 6-7). Before that, he defeated Marc-Andrea Huesler (7-5, 6-2) and Gregoire Barrere (7-6, 7-6).
Rune’s best result so far this season was at the Australian Open where he reached the fourth round, where he lost to Andrey Rublev (3-6, 6-3, 3-6, 6-4 ,6-7).
Rune has won five of his last ten matches against left-handed players.
