The Danish star is one of only three active players to defeat the Serbian multiple times in tour-level matches and own a winning record against him. The other players are Nick Kyrgios (2-1) and Jiri Vesely (2-0).
Players w/Winning Record vs. Djokovic
|Marat Safin and Jiri Vesely||2-0|
|Fernando Gonzalez, Ivo Karlovic, Nick Kyrgios & Holger Rune||2-1|
Rune is now 2-1 in his ATP Head2Head series with the 38-time ATP Masters 1000 champion. Last year, aged 19, he stunned Djokovic in the final of the Rolex Paris Masters for his first Masters 1000 title.
Djokovic only owns a losing record against just 13 players, active or inactive. Of that group, only one player has more than two wins. Former World No. 1 Andy Roddick won five of his nine matches against the Serbian.
Rune has risen to the occasion against the world's best, tallying a 12-9 record against Top 10 players in the Pepperstone ATP Rankings.
