Boris Becker to continue coaching Holger Rune in 2024


Boris Becker will continue to coach Danish player Holger Rune next year, the German tennis icon has revealed.

Three-time Wimbledon champion Becker started working with world No.8 Rune last month on a contract until the end of the season, after the 20-year-old had gone out in his first match in six of the seven tournaments after Wimbledon.

Rune improved again and qualified for the ATP Finals in Turin where he exited earlier in the week in the group stage. Becker said on X that the partnership has now been extended.

"I am very excited to continue my partnership with Holger Rune in 2024. We are building a team around Holger to bring out the best version of himself, on and off the court," Becker said.

Becker, 55, had previously named Rune "a rough diamond that needs to be polished."

The German has enjoyed past success as coach when he helped world No.1 Novak Djokovic win several grand slam titles during their partnership between 2013 and 2016.
