TennisSection previews the 2023 Montpellier Open as Holger Rune takes on Gregoire Barrere in the quarterfinals on Friday, February 10, 2023.
Will Holger Rune get the win? Will Gregoire Barrere pull off the upset? This will be an interesting one, where we have the top seed looking to move on past a local. Who will triumph and move through to the semifinals at the 2023 Montpellier Open?
Holger Rune played an excellent match against Huesler, taking him out in straight sets to set up a meeting with Gregoire Barrere. Rune is the heavy favorite coming into this one, and I definitely expect him to meet those expectations. This court suits his game extremely well and Rune is absolutely showing that he’s not going to back down any time soon. Let’s see if the top seed can book his place in the semifinals of the 2023 Montpellier Open.
Gregoire Barrere took out Basilashvili quite easily, not really the biggest win considering the form of the Georgian of late, but still a solid win as he looks to somehow pull off a stunner against Holger Rune. If he wants to win this one, he’ll have to hope the Dane is off his game, as Barrere simply does not have the level or experience to defeat an in-form Rune here at the 2023 Montpellier Open.
Holger Rune and Gregoire Barrere have never met before, with this being their first career meeting. Rune will be coming into this match as the man to beat without a doubt, and while I do absolutely expect him to make it through, he may have to be wary of the crowd which will undoubtedly be in favor of his opponent. Let’s see if Rune can get the job done and move on to the last eight at the 2023 Montpellier Open.
