What he’s done since last summer
- Won his first ATP Challenger title (Biella)

Long led by former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki, Danish tennis can boast teen talents on both ATP and WTA tours, the former a 17-year-old with a training base at the Patrick Mourataglou Academy.
“She was an unbelievable fighter on the court and I think we could learn a lot from her,” Rune told ATPTour.com of Wozniacki earlier this year.
Rune’s competitive instincts have been on display since topping the junior rankings and winning the boy’s singles title at Roland Garros. That same year, he served as a practice partner for the game’s best at the ATP Finals.
