“The pitch was too written”

The transition from clay to grass wasn’t what he expected. Holger Runes he had to give up already in the first round of the ATP 500 at Queen’s. The one who took him out was the Australian Jordan Thompsonwho beat him with the result of 4-6, 7-6(4), 6-3.

In commenting on the defeat, the former top ten player made no excuses, but spoke of the danger of the rather unstable pitches: It was very slippery, to be honest. I slipped three times and one of these slips was very important, but there is no point in blaming the pitch, I am responsible for the defeat.

It’s like that for both of us, and he managed not to slip,” he said in an interview reported by As, after the match.

Rune’s negative period continues

Holger suffered three falls during the match, without physical consequences, but one of these in the third set cost him the break and ultimately the match.

The season of the 21-year-old from Gentofte has been quite disappointing so far. At Roland Garros he showed encouraging signs of recovery, putting finalist Alexander on the ropes Zverev. Now he will try to do better at Wimbledon, where last year he stopped in the quarter-finals.

The Danish tennis player was not the only one to experience these problems. Yesterday, other colleagues of his had problems with the maintenance of the fields, also reporting more serious problems. This is the case of Frances Tiafoewho following a fall was forced to withdraw from the match against Rinky Hijikata.

America reported a hip problem. But it didn’t end there, even the match between Alejando Tabilo and Alejando Davidovich Fokina had suffered an interruption due to high humidity.
