The duo will square off on Monday, November 13, to kickstart their round-robin leg of the tournament.
The duo have so far played four times against each other with the head-to-head tied at 2-2. They first met at the 2021 US Open for an opening-round tie, which the Serb won.
Rune went one step ahead by winning the next two matchups against the 24-time Grand Slam champion. He defeated the Serb in the 2022 Paris Masters final and at the 2023 Italian Open in the quarterfinals.
