Denmark’s Holger Rune, who has played in Kungens Kanna, talks about Tennis Europe and his early goals as a junior tennis player in the Swedish tennis magazine Svenska Tennismagasinet (Nr. 3 2022).
– I always set goals with my coach. I hate not being the best. So to become the number one is always my final goal.
– It started in Tennis Europe with goals already that young. That resulted in me winning the European championship in U12 and U14.
Those early goals helped Rune reach where he is today: in the top 30 in the ATP Rankings. And he wants to become the best.
The French Tournament Les Petits As in Tarbes and Kungens Kanna & Drottningens Pris are seen as the two major tournaments on the Tennis Europe Junior Tour.
Today on the 10th July, Nordea Open in Båstad, Sweden, starts for the men’s class. Rune is one of the participants.
