Seventh seed Holger Rune will square off against Indian qualifier Sumit Nagal in the second round of the 2024 Monte Carlo Masters. The match will be played on Wednesday, April 10, 2024. Here's our Holger Rune vs Sumit Nagal prediction.

Holger Rune

Holger Rune reached his first Masters final on clay at last year's Monte Carlo Masters but lost to Andrey Rublev in an entertaining final. 12 months on, Rune returns to the Principality, a place he calls his home since he is a Monaco resident, looking to exorcise his demons. The Dane couldn't have asked for a better start to his campaign coming up against a qualifier. This is his first outing on the European clay this month, although he did get some valuable minutes and a win in doubles while partnering Taylor Fritz on Monday.

Sumit Nagal

On Monday, Sumit Nagal became the first Indian man to win a clay-court match at Masters 1000 level. And he had to pull off a surprise by knocking out high-flying Italian Matteo Arnaldi in front of a partisan atmosphere. With his back against the wall after losing a close first set, Nagal produced some fabulous ball striking to overcome the consistent Arnaldi, breaking his serve six times during the two-hour 38-minute battle. He has now tallied three wins from qualifying and will look to knock off a Top 10 player on Wednesday.

Holger Rune vs Sumit Nagal Head-To-Head

Their previous head-to-head meeting was in last year's Davis Cup Group I singles rubber. Rune won 7-5, 6-3, in a match played on an indoor hard court.

Holger Rune vs Sumit Nagal Prediction

Nagal regards clay as his favorite surface, winning over half of his career matches on the dirt. And the bulk of the titles he has won at the lower levels have come on clay. But it is tough to see the history-making Indian causing Rune plenty of problems in Monte Carlo. The Dane is levels above Nagal and should be trusted to ease into the next round in straight sets.
