Boris Becker has been appointed Holger Rune’s interim coach, with the aim of helping the Dane advance to the ATP Finals. They were to decide on their further cooperation after the season finale. The moment has come. What is the fate of this duo?
Boris Becker fulfilled the task assigned to him. Holger Rune advanced to the ATP Finals. The Dane was eliminated from the tournament at the group stage of the group stage after losing to Novak Djokovic in the last match of that round of the event. Becker began working with Rune in October. Does the fact that he took him to the ATP Finals, as agreed, mean that Becker will remain on Rune’s coaching staff? Yes.
In October, Boris Becker agreed to support Holger Rune, who was going through a crisis in the second half of the season. The former ATP ranking leader joined the 20-year-old’s staff as a coach and led the Dane during a short period of playing in European halls.
The men set themselves one short-term goal – advancement to the ATP Finals 2023. Then, after the competition in Turin, they were to sit down for further talks.
I am very excited to continue my partnership with Holger Rune in 2024 – wrote Becker on the X platform.
