Danish tennis player Holger Rune recently announced the addition of Severin Luthi to his coaching team for 2024.

After parting ways with former coach Patrick Mouratoglou earlier in 2023, Holger Rune appointed Boris Becker in October after his US Open campaign. Despite starting the season on a high, Rune’s form dropped drastically as he proceeded with the season.

Thus, he decided to change his coaching team. It turned out to be the perfect decision for him, as the youngster had an instant result in the ATP Finals, where there was a significant improvement in his performance. 

Very Happy to welcome Severin to my team alongside Boris.
