Holger Rune issues challenge to Novak Djokovic and Rafa Nadal

Protagonist of the 2022 season finale with his success in Paris-Bercy, achieved after beating Novak Djokovic in the final, Holger Rune is clear about his potential and issues a challenge to the Serb and also to the other legend still active in the ATO circuit, Rafa Nadal.

“I think I can beat them,” said the Dane, interviewed by the British portal ‘Express Sport.’ “They have set a very high standard and I am happy they are continuing to play. Their records, Rune further states, are “there to be broken and they push you to work harder to break them.”

Rune, in any case, does not want to enter the debate about who may be the strongest tennis player ever: “I don’t think about it,” he said, “in fact I hate this kind of debate. All the tennis players who are being debated are extraordinary, they have made history in the sport and have inspired younger people to try to emulate them.”
