French Open 2022: Holger Rune vs. Hugo Gaston Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2022 French Open as Holger Rune takes on Hugo Gaston in the third round on Saturday, May 28th, 2022.

Will the fairytale debut of Holger Rune at the French Open have another chapter? Or Will Hugo Gaston serve another reminder of why we should never write him off at his home slam? It should be a fascinating watch as the consistent Dane takes on the ostentatiously-talented Frenchman.

Holger Rune took another step in his evolution as a fully-fledged top-tier player with a comfortable 6-2 6-3 6-3 win over Swiss veteran Henri Laaksonen. Rune, who conquered Denis Shapovalov in remarkable fashion in his opening round, showcased his talent yet again hammering six aces and winning 88% first-serve points. The young Dane did not drop serve all afternoon and saved the lone break point he faced in the match. Rune’s reward is a place in the third of the French Open on his main draw debut. The junior Roland Garros champion will be looking to record a 20th win on the clay in 2022.

Hugo Gaston, for his part, continues to be a menace at the French Open. The 20-year-old just does not know when he is beaten at his home slam. And the Frenchman produced another eye-catching win for the history books when he knocked out the number 19 seed Alex De Minaur in a remarkable five-setter in the first round. Prior to this week, Gaston had only won once in five clay-court tournaments this season. But Paris has sparked him into life. Victories over De Minaur and then Pedro Cachinhave put him into the third round against all the odds. 

Holger Rune and Hugo Gaston have not played each other at any level. Rune is the younger of the two players and at 19 is quickly living up to his teenage promise. Gaston, by contrast, has struggled to transition successfully on the senior tour, showing just glimpses of his potential. The Frenchman is still only 21 though, and will certainly improve by leaps and bounds in forthcoming years. But on Saturday, I can’t see any other result but a Rune win.
