Former Becker protégé Rune has a new trainer

Tennis professional Holger Rune has a new coach around two weeks after Boris Becker’s resignation. In the future, the 20-year-old Dane will again be accompanied by his former French coach Patrick Mouratoglou. Rune announced this on X (formerly Twitter).

“Wish you much success in the coming tournaments and for the rest of the season!”, commented three-time Wimbledon winner Becker on X.

About two weeks ago, the 56-year-old Becker announced the end of his coaching engagement for the world number seven Rune after less than half a year and justified this with scheduling problems: “Due to professional and private reasons, I cannot give Holger this, what he needs at the moment.”

The coaching team also included Roger Federer’s long-time Swiss coach Severin Lüthi, from whom Rune parted ways after the disappointing performance at the Australian Open in January.

Becker was not at Rune’s side in Melbourne, instead he reported from Germany as a TV expert for “Eurosport”. At the US Open last September, Becker was unable to report on site for the Internet broadcaster Sportdeutschland.TV due to visa problems. Before that, he also commented remotely for “Sky Italia” at his favorite tournament in Wimbledon.
