Style of play, strengths and weaknesses

Holger Rune has a high-energy game built around a dependable At 1.88m (6’1”) Rune has to lean heavily on wide serves, loaded with plenty of kick. In fact, Rune serves more to the wings than his body and T-serves combined – something that may ultimately need to be addressed, to avoid his game becoming too predictable. And while he serves a solid number of aces, the majority of Rune’s points come from an admirable selection of groundstrokes, many of which are set-up by precision serves that aggressively fizz and pop off the ground.

Overall, there is no denying the fact that Rune is every inch the modern player with a high-octane style predicated on speed and power.
