Second Serve

A newly formed partnership between two high profile tennis personalities has already come to an end. Boris Becker announced that he will step down from coaching duties with Holger Rune, due to professional and private responsibilities.

“I would like to inform you that I will step down as the head coach of Holger Rune with immediate effect,” Becker wrote in a social media post.

“We started this partnership with the initial goal to reach the ATP Finals end of last year but moving forward I realised that in order for this to be successful, I would need to be available for Holger much more than I can. Due to professional and private responsibilities, I can’t give Holger what he needs now. I wish him only the very best and I’m always going to be his n.1 fan. I truly appreciated this journey together.”

Rune entered the season with a star-studded coaching entourage that included Becker and Severin Luthi, the former longtime coach of Roger Federer. Luthi, however, was the first to leave the team, citing “timing” as the reason for departure.

Kenneth Carlsen and Rune’s mother, Aneke, will likely take the helm of Team Rune for now.
