Rune began working with the former No.1 back in October, in Becker’s first coaching role since leading Novak Djokovic to six Grand Slam titles.

The 20-year-old then added Roger Federer’s former coach, Severin Luthi, in December, but that relationship came to an end last week after it was revealed that the Swiss could not fully commit to Rune’s schedule.

And now Rune has also ended his coaching relationship with Becker, with the German announcing the news on social media last night, “I would like to inform you that I will step down as the head coach of Holger Rune with immediate effect.

Becker continued, “We started this partnership with the initial goal to reach the ATP Finals end of last year but moving forward I realised that in order for this to be successful, I would need to be available for Holger much more than I can.

Due to professional and private responsibilities, I can’t give Holger what he needs now. I wish him only the very best and I’m always going to be his n.1 fan. I truly appreciated this journey together. BB.”
