Holger Rune has decided to continue his coaching partnership with Boris Becker into 2023. The pair worked together towards the end of the 2023 season, which was fruitful for Rune after struggling for many months before that. At one point after Wimbledon, he had lost 10 out of 11 matches.
Rune qualified for the year-end ATP finals. Though he lost his matches against Jannik Sinner and Novak Djokovic, his form had improved considerably under Becker.
Becker was excited to continue the partnership with Holger Rune, saying, “I am very excited to continue my partnership with Holger Rune in 2024. We are building a team around Holger to bring out the best version of himself, on and off the court.”.
Rune confirmed that the the partnership will continue because of the positive results, saying “The plan is to continue together. We must evaluate what needs to happen. We’ve had some positive weeks where I’ve started to play really good tennis. It’s small things that hopefully we can develop even more”.
Rune’s mother Aneke Rune said that the team is looking to add a physical therapist and trainer to the team. The two will travel with Rune and handle additional responsibilities when Becker is unavailable to travel.
