The fourth racket of the world, 20-year-old Danish tennis player Holger Rune reacted ironically to the place that the organizers of the US Open – 2023 gave him for the start of the tournament. Apparently, the Dane did not like the significance of the court.
“Map of the US Open territory. If you can find Court No. 5, I will play my first match there on Monday,” wrote Rune, attached a map and added the hashtags #увидымся #люблюсвоихболельщиков #люблювашуподдержку.
Let us remind you that for the first time in his career, Rune was seeded at the Grand Slam tournament at the high fourth number. In the first round, the competitive emu will face the representative of Spain, Roberto Carballes-Baeno (ranked 64 in the world).
Note that Rune unsuccessfully held the Masters series tournaments in Toronto (Canada) and Cincinnati (USA). In Toronto, he lost to the American Marcos Giron in the first match, and in the opening match in Cincinnati, Holger played one game and withdrew due to back problems.
