Holger Rune was plagued with a back injury in the middle of the season. This injury took a toll on his performance at the bigger stages which were held later this year. But he somehow pulled the strings at the back end of the year to get featured in the ATP Finals for the first time in his career. Now, his mother recently posted a heartfelt message on Instagram. She asks him to learn from his mistakes and look forward to next season.

Here’s what Aneke Rune said: Looking back I would never have imagined it was so much harder to consolidate a position than getting it. The journey is so new still, we learn all the time and yet you accomplished so much already, Holger Rune. The experience and wisdom we bring into 2024 is precious. I look forward. Now it’s time to relax with the family and then do a lot of planning for next year,”

The inclusion of the 55-year-old German former number 1 in tennis, Boris Becker at the later stages of the season had put wind in the sails of Holger Rune. Becker made an instant impact by helping Rune reach the SFs of the Swiss Indoors and QFs of Paris Masters. These results eventually helped Rune to book his ticket to Turin for the season-ending championship.
