In a significant coaching move, Danish tennis sensation Holger Rune has enlisted the expertise of former world No. 1 and tennis legend, Boris Becker, as his coach. Rune’s decision to team up with the accomplished coach is aimed at revitalizing his 2023 season.
Boris Becker, who boasts a remarkable playing career with 49 tour-level titles and 713 wins, including 121 victories against Top 10 opponents, has previously demonstrated his coaching prowess by guiding Novak Djokovic to some of his most exceptional achievements.
Rune, whose promising career had seen him reach a career-high Pepperstone ATP Ranking of No. 4 in August, encountered a dip in performance during the latter part of his 2023 season. Despite a strong start that included ATP Masters 1000 finals in Monte-Carlo and Rome, a tour-level title in Munich, and impressive quarter-final runs at Roland Garros and Wimbledon, Rune struggled to maintain his momentum.
He has recently faced a challenging phase, managing just one win out of eight matches since the conclusion of the grass swing. Despite the setbacks, Rune remains determined to regain his form and finish the year on a strong note.
In a recent Instagram post, Rune expressed his optimism and confidence, stating that he feels more connected to his game than he has in a while. With Becker’s guidance and expertise, Rune aims to make the necessary adjustments and rejuvenate his performance in the upcoming tournaments.
