Patrick Mouratoglou, the French coach, makes an astonishing prediction regarding this year’s French Open. He picks his former Danish World No. Holger Rune, is the 6th Holger. Carlos Alcaraz, and the Serbian World No. In the absence of Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic was the third player.
Mouratoglou said, “Everyyear I say the main thing is to find out who will beat Rafael Nadal at the final. Roland-Garros is nothing without Rafael Nadal, just like the judo championships without Teddy Riner. This statement does not apply this year so I must give the credit to Holger Rune, or I would be considered a bad coach. My prediction is that Holger will win his Grand Slam Tournament.
Rune is through to the third round at the French Open, after a walkover against the highly anticipated clash with French veteran Gael Montfils. According to the projected draws, Rune will only be facing Djokovic and Alcaraz for the finals. This is a good draw considering Rune’s form and his draw.
Patrick Mouratoglou and Holger Rune have been together for a long time
Patrick Mouratoglou, the French tennis coach who was Holger Rune’s full-time coach until last May, stepped down. He only coached Holger Rune for a short time, but has a long-standing relationship with him.
The Danish player’s results were excellent under Mouratoglou. Mouratoglou was also responsible for his first victory in an ATP 1000 tournament. In the Paris Masters 2020, he beat Novak Djokovic after a thrilling three-set match. Rune hasn’t lived up to expectations since that title
The Danish described the six-month stint with Mouratoglou, as both funny and instructive. Rune said there were also no particular issues, and that he had been in contact with Frenchmen since childhood.
In a press release Rune released about their separation he wrote, “We were fortunate to have Patrick join us for six months. It was a fun and informative experience.” This learning will be used to prepare for the clay season, which includes three Masters 1000s and a Grand Slam. Patrick and the Mouratoglou Academy are part of our organisation, just as they were when I was 13.
