Holger Rune has surged into the spotlight over the past couple of years with his tennis success, with highlights including his 2022 Rolex Paris Masters victory and qualifying for the Nitto ATP Finals in 2023.

Fans got an even closer look at the Danish star in recent weeks, when he was featured in Netflix’s hit tennis docuseries Break Point.

Rune’s love for the sport and hunger for success came to life.

One of the most notable moments of his episode came when he battled past Novak Djokovic in Rome.

Aneke Rune, Holger’s mother, told ATPTour.com: “In general I love to see the fire in his eyes. These matches against the legends, he knows that he cannot do anything wrong.

“You see him doing an effort in everything he does on court, which makes the match very exciting to watch.

But also as a parent watching, it’s impressive to see that you can keep focussed, that you can make an effort in every stroke you do. You can think. You get proud when you watch this.”
