Danish rising star Holger Rune will make his debut at the Rotterdam Open.
The 19-year-old had a breakthrough season in 2022 as he claimed his first ATP Masters 1000 title at the Paris Masters and reached his career-high ranking of No.10.
Notably, by the end of the season, fellow tennis players voted to elect him as ATP Newcomer of the Year in the ATP Year-End Award.
However, the World No.11 tennis player is now committed to playing at the 50th edition of the ABN AMRO Open. The prestigious ATP 500 category event will be held from 11-19 February 2023 on the indoor hard courts at the Rotterdam Ahoy in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
Holger Rune will be confronted with a star-studded line-up including Stefanos Tsitsipas, Daniil Medvedev, Andrey Rublev, Felix Auger-Aliassime, and fans favorites Botic van de Zandschulp, and Tim van Rijthoven.
“It’s great that Rune will play in Rotterdam. He is one of the players’ tennis fans will enjoy in the coming years. And in Paris, he has already shown that he can also win from the greats,” said Richard Krajicek, tournament director.
