Novak Djokovic will play against teen star Holger Rune in the final of the 2022 Paris Masters on Sunday. Here we have the Djokovic vs Rune live coverage, streaming, time, preview, and prediction.
After an opening-round bye, Novak Djokovic commenced his title defense with a win over Maxime Cressy. He knocked out Karen Khachanov and Lorenzo Musetti to make the last four, where he faced Stefanos Tsitsipas. The Greek put up a fight, but the former World No. 1 prevailed in the end, winning 6-2, 3-6, 7-6(4) and extending his unbeaten run to 13 matches.
Holger Rune almost made a first-round exit but saved three match points to turn the tables on Stan Wawrinka and oust him instead. He defeated Hubert Hurkacz and Andrey Rublev in straight sets to reach the quarterfinals. The teenager faced World No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz next, who ended up retiring from the match midway through the second set tie-break.
Rune’s semifinal opponent was Felix Auger-Aliassime, who was on a 16-match winning streak and had recently defeated him in the final of the Swiss Indoors. But the young Dane came out on top this time, winning 6-4, 6-2 to reach the final of a Masters 1000 event for the first time.
Djokovic is just one win away from a record-extending seventh title in Paris, while Rune is gunning for the biggest title of his career. Both players are in great form now, so it’s expected to be a closely contested battle. Here are all the details about their upcoming showdown.
