An interesting duel closes Wednesday’s day in Acapulco. Holger Rune he was looking to take another step in the tournament after a tough debut win against promising Ben Shelton. Ranked fourth in this tournament, the Danish tennis player wanted to reach the second quarter-final of the season after what happened in Montpellier, where he was even a semi-finalist. His rival was Nuno Borges, a more regular player in the Challenger tournaments, whose performance there is what got him into the Top 100 and those types of tournaments. The Portuguese will be the champion of the Monterrey Challenger, so with his winning debut against Nick Chappell, he had an unbeaten record of six games.

Rune finishes the job quickly

A very solid start to the match for Rune who, due to the conditions with a heavy ball, forced his pace to make his rival’s play always uncomfortable. The Dane himself was also very comfortable on serve, managing to make two breaks in a row to go 4-0 up against Borges, who had nothing to do. Continuing on the same path, the Top 10 would barely lose three service points in the entire first set. Holger eventually won 6-0 in just over 20 minutes.

Borges started the second sleeve, opening the goal, as if to change something. However, this illusion was quickly crumbling, because once again the Dane would manage to set conditions with another break. The Scandinavian tennis player seemed determined to go to bed as early as possible, leaving the Portuguese with no options, no answers and no predictability as he tried to vary his shots. After another break Rune sealed his victory with a 6-2 goal and won the game in less than an hour..
