Director Lars Kristensen was pleased to see his student Holga Vitu believe in himself before playing against Novak Djokovic at the US Open. Rune, the 2019 French Open Men’s Singles Champion, was drawn to meet the world’s best Djokovic at the Grand Slam debut at the US Open.
The 18-year-old rune fought very well with Djokovic because he could even steal the set from the Serbs. Twenty-time Grand Slam champion Djokovic did not cause much confusion as Rune defeated Dane 6-1 6-7 (5) 6-2 6-1. Before the match, Rune said he wanted to defeat Djokovic.
“He was always. When he was 10, he was 100% sure he could beat his Danish seniors. That wasn’t possible, but in his opinion it’s possible. , That’s because if you don’t believe in yourself 100%, it won’t happen, “Kristensen told the ATP Tour website.
The coach knew that it wouldn’t be easy for Rune to play against Djokovic.
Kristensen suggested that he knew that defeating Djokovic was an almost impossible task. “I’m more realistic.
I knew he would play Djokovic at the US Open in his first slam [would be tough].. I would have been really happy if he had played good tennis and showed his potential. That was what he did and it was great. But for him, it’s a win or loss, it’s a fuel for the player, and it’s very good.
“I don’t want to rob him of it,” Djokovic said. “But my job is to set realistic goals and tell him that everything is possible, my In my opinion, there is one step at a time. What is it to take one set against Djokovic, but keeping a distance from Djokovic is another story. ”
