Holger Rune is the must-watch future tennis star everyone should be talking about. At 17 years old, he already lives up to his nickname, The Machine. His forehand is powerful, precise, and consistent. His game is well-oiled, and his mind is sharp and focused. He wants to win, period. His passion for tennis is like an inner fire – as if he was programmed to play the game. And his results back it up: at only 16 years old, he was lifting the Roland-Garros junior trophy. His junior results? The list is too long to even get started. 2020 was going to be the year he transitioned to the pro tour, but he’ll be battling on the UTS stage instead. Don’t let his ATP ranking (No. 827) fool you, because The Machine is just getting started.Watch live
Rune’s biggest weapon is not a shot, but what’s inside his head. He’s a fighter, he wants to win, he wants it bad. He never gives up.
The forehand is where Rune is most at ease. That’s where his nickname, The Machine, takes all his sense. He’s powerful, he’s precise, he’s consistent.
Rune masters what not only the serve, but also the return. Reactive, solid, he can quickly neutralize the point on the serve, giving him an edge against top players.
