Notably, tennis legend Boris Becker will continue to be part of Rune’s coaching team. “The timing with Severin was not quite right. Holger needs a coach who is with him all the time and a super coach (Boris Becker ed.). Severin will be able to cover too few weeks for the continuity that Holger needs,” said Rune’s mother in the interview.

As Rune goes through this coaching change, the focus remains on ensuring steady support for his growth in the tennis world.

Despite parting ways, Luthi was the only Roger Federer connection that Rune had in his team. Having admired the Swiss champion his whole life, Rune was obliged by Luthi’s presence.
