Roberto Carballes Baena vs Holger Rune: US Open 2023 Preview

Roberto Carballes Baena has faced a series of unfortunate draws in this year’s Grand Slam tournaments, consistently encountering top-10 players in the early stages, a trend continuing at the US Open. His misfortune started with a resounding loss to Novak Djokovic at the Australian Open’s first round. This pattern persisted at the subsequent Paris and Wimbledon events, where he was thwarted in the second round by Stefanos Tsitsipas and Holger Rune respectively. Despite a subpar hard court record, Carballes Baena has displayed a remarkable performance in US Open’s initial rounds. He clinched victory in four of his last five opening matches, with his lone defeat dating back to four years ago, against the formidable Djokovic.

Holger Rune aimed to win a Grand Slam this year, but his current form and health issues have made it unlikely. He’s on a five-match losing streak, including an upset by Leandro Riedi and a health-related retirement against Mackenzie McDonald. Despite this, Rune had significant accomplishments in Grand Slam events this year. He reached close to the quarterfinals in the Australian Open and made impressive quarterfinal appearances in the French Open and Wimbledon, where he was stopped by Casper Ruud and Carlos Alcaraz, respectively. In his debut US Open in 2021, he fatigued but still took a set from Novak Djokovic. His 2022 return yielded just one win against Peter Gojowczyk.
