Us Open, Holger Rune eliminated with controversy

Bitter Us Open for Holger Rune, who exited immediately in the first round against Spaniard Roberto Carballes Baena. The Danish tennis player, coming off a back injury, also had a problem with his left leg that severely handicapped him.

After the defeat, Rune resumed the controversy with the organizers for making him play on Court 5: "Not è difficult to play on this court, but different. You’re closer to the audience. The’atmosphere è beautiful, but I simply did not expect to play on this court and I tried to get an explanation and they told me what we all already know: they prefer to have American tennis players play on the main courts".

"I am used to it, but the problem is not è this. È difficult, becauseé when you ask more questions, they no longer answer", è the venomous closing of the world number 4.

On his physical condition: "It has been a difficult few weeks. I had a setback after the Toronto and Cincinnati tournaments, where I also had to retire. It ès not been the best preparation for a Slam. I am not satisfied with the result or even with my tennis. There’è only one way forward: keep working".
