Australian Open > Rune (on his gesture towards his box): “Usually, I like to be given advice from time to time, but not all the time”

In a press conference after his defeat in the super tie‐break against Andrey Rublev this Monday in the round of 16, Holger Rune explained his strange gesture towards his box composed among others of his mother, his trainer, Lars Christensen, and his mentor since the end of last season, Patrick Mouratoglou. The young Dane simply wanted to silence them.

“Usually, I like to be given advice from time to time. But not all the time. There, I felt that it was not the moment, I had to concentrate only on the court. In these moments, everything is played on a point or two. And the more focused I am on the court, the more good tennis I can produce. If I’m not 100% present on the court, it’s complicated. Especially in tense times. I think it’s important to stay focused on the game plan and on the court. Without that, we can lose a point, two points and that can be enough to lose the match.explained the winner of the Paris-Bercy Masters 1000, who got two match points before losing.
