Acapulco Open 2023: Holger Rune vs. Matteo Berrettini Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2023 Acapulco Open as Holger Rune takes on Matteo Berrettini in the quarterfinal on Thursday, March 2, 2023.

Will Holger Rune get the win? Will Matteo Berrettini pull off the upset? This will be an interesting one, where we have the most anticipated matchup of the set of quarterfinals between a rising star and one of the world’s best in the last few years. Who will triumph and move through to the semifinals at the 2023 Acapulco Open?

Holger Rune played a great match to move through to the quarterfinals against Matteo Berrettini, he’s looked quite convincing all week and he’s definitely at least a slight favorite coming into this one considering the circumstances. Rune will be one of the few players in the world to have the ability to return some of Berrettini’s monster serves, as well as have the ability to really exploit the Italian’s backhand by pummeling his own cross court. Let’s see if Rune can grab this win and book himself a ticket to the semis of the 2023 Acapulco Open.

Matteo Berrettini has looked great this week since losing early in Australia, hardly dropping games en route to the quarterfinals. Berrettini has struggled with injuries in the last year, and unfortunately has dropped quite far in the rankings due to that. Though he’ll certainly have his chances against Rune, I feel as if Rune will have the answers for Berrettini’s aggression from the baseline as these two clash for a spot in the final four here at the 2023 Acapulco Open.

Holger Rune and Matteo Berrettini have met once before, with Matteo Berrettini leading the head to head 1-0. Their lone meeting came almost a year ago at Indian Wells, with Berrettini winning in a sloppy three-setter, many months before Rune’s rise to the top of the game. Berrettini at his best would have much more to say in this matchup, but considering their current states I have to go with Rune to come through this one in a tight affair and book himself a place in the semifinals at the 2023 Acapulco Open.
