Tennis journalist Jose Morgado’s tweet reported the change. Rune’s mother cleared the air around her son’s future, saying, “It just didn’t work out. Right now it is important that Holger finds the right team, that he can have for a long time. He has decided that isn’t with Patrick.” The young Danish is resolutely committed to this strategic shift.

With Mouratoglou out of the equation, Rune is set to embark on a new journey with a fresh approach. The reintegration of Lars Christensen into a prime position on his coaching staff marks a significant stride in this transition. Respected within the tennis community, Christensen’s return adds another layer of experience to Rune’s support system.

Holger Rune’s mother recently also revealed that his coaches Patrick and Lars had had their ego issues in the past. This resulted in them taking a break from coaching him. While the two were present together at the Australian Open, Patrick’s absence at Wimbledon was glaring.

However, on the other hand, Patrick was present at the French Open while Lars remained absent during the clay season. Thus, over the last few months, the possible clash of egos resulted in Holger Rune’s declining performance. But now, as Rune sets out to shape a fresh chapter in his promising career, the departure from one coaching partnership becomes the prelude to another new and hopefully exciting era, ripe with possibilities.
