Becker to return to tennis with Rune coaching role


Three-time Wimbledon champion Boris Becker says he is the new Coach of Denmark’s world number six Holger Rune.

Becker was released early from a UK prison last December having been found guilty of hiding £2.5 million worth of assets and loans to avoid paying debts.

The 55-year-old German coached Novak Djokovic from 2013 to 2016, in which time the Serb won six Grand Slams.


His new charge Rune, 20, has been tipped as a future Slam champion, but has won only one match since Wimbledon.

Rune reached the quarter-finals at SW19 this year, equalling his best run at a major, but lost in straight sets to eventual champion Carlos Alcaraz.
