HIGHLIGHTS

  • Holger Rune beat Stefanos Tsitsipas 7-5, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4
  • Holger Rune will meet Casper Ruud in the last eight
  • Holger Rune had not won a match at a major before arriving in Paris

Danish teen Holger Rune revealed the tactics he used to down last year’s finalist Stefanos Tsitsipas in the fourth round of the 2022 French Open.

Rune defeated Tsitsipas by 7-5, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 at Court Philippe-Chatrier to storm into the quarter-final on May 30 (IST).

“I have an unbelievable feeling. I was so nervous in the end,” Rune was quoted as saying after the match. “I was very nervous. I told myself to keep at it and play my plan. I mean it is so great to still be here.

“Part of the tactic was to play as aggressive as possible, when he gets shorter balls he (Tsitsipas) attacks them. I really liked playing the drop shots and it worked out pretty good so I am happy.”

The 19-year-old Rune had not won a match at a major before arriving in Paris. He saved three break points in the final game of the four-set contest before wrapping up the match.

Rune will meet Norwegian Casper Ruud in the last eight on Wednesday (June 1).
