Exclusive Interview with Holger Rune

I had an opportunity to chat with Holger Rune, winner of the boys’ singles at Roland Garros 2019 and ITF World Junior Finals 2019. He plans to utilize the junior exempt place he earned into World Tennis Tour events on the remainder of the season. He was born on April 29, 2003 and from Charlottenlund, Denmark. An aggressive baseliner with two-handed backhand, he currently plays at M25 Klosters this week.

  2. This kid sounds like he’s really going places. I love to see that kind of drive in the younger generation.

  3. I am inspired to pick up my racket. Since I bought my stuff for tennis, I’ve never stepped foot on the court. It’s amazing to see the persistence of this dude in getting to the top.

  4. Sounds like he’s having a blast. Inspiration really comes from the family. I’m glad he was inspired by his sister into playing tennis.

  11. I really love Holger’s work ethic and his spirit. You can tell he’s incredibly committed to what he’s doing. I hope he gets everything he’s ever dreamed of.

  12. Sounds like a great experience to get to interview Holger Rune! I wanted to play tennis in high school sports but we didn’t have a court and you needed a car/ride to get over to the court in town. It wasn’t an option for me due to also working part time but I think it’s a fun sport!

  13. This is such a great interview! I love watching Tennis games but I am a really bad tennis player. His parents must be so proud of him.
