Why Holger Rune’s coach, Mouratoglou, disagrees with Tsitsipas

Stefanos Tsitsipas Jolger Rune And Patrick Mouratoglou

Stefanos Tsitsipas and Holger Rune have a rather good relationship and recently the Greek sensation said that he was a bit worried that the teenager has burnt out. According to the world no.4, Holger is too obsessed with tennis and that could be detrimental to his psyche.

Legendary coach Patrick Mouratoglou used to mentor Stefanos every now and then, and he is also now Holger’s full-time coach. As reported by Tennis Majors, the Frenchman stated that he is not so worried about Holger Rune being obsessed with tennis.

“I know that Stefanos said that he was a bit worried for Holger, thinking that he might burn out because he’s too passionate about tennis. There is always a risk of burnout on the other hand. What is sure is that if you’re not passionate, you’re not going to burn out but you’re not going to be a champion,” said Patrick.
