DUESSELDORF, Germany (AP) — Boris Becker is returning to coaching for the first time since the six-time Grand Slam tennis winner's release from a British prison last year, with sixth-ranked Holger Rune.
Becker told broadcaster Eurosport on a podcast published on Thursday that he will work with the 20-year-old Danish player for the rest of the season, starting at the Swiss Indoors next week.
“It makes me a little proud that he asked me. The contact has existed for a long time. Now it was a very good fit," Becker said. “My calendar allows it and I have always been interested in Holger because he is on the tennis court with so much commitment and temperament."
Becker signalled he would focus on the mental side of the game and described Rune as “a rough diamond that needs polishing.”
