Denmark’s tennis star Holger Rune has stated that he would do whatever he wants in response to a comment from a user on social media. The 20-year-old’s journey in the singles category in the Monte-Carlo Masters came to an end on Friday as he lost to Italy’s Jannik Sinner in the quarterfinal with a score of 6-4, 6-7, 6-3.
Before that encounter, Rune was also knocked out from the doubles category of the mega-event as he along with his partner America’s Taylor Fritz lost to the pair of Germany’s Alexander Zverev and Brazil’s Marcelo Melo in the quarterfinal in straight sets with a score of 6-2, 7-6.
The current world number seven, later in a post on social media platform X — previously known as Twitter — expressed satisfaction with his performance. "3 matches in 38 hours a short but beautiful @ROLEXMCMASTERS. Happy about my level of tennis. Things to improve still and will start working on this Monday. Enjoy the weekend,” he wrote.
In response to that, a user posted a comment: "Real champions don't cry like this. Lesson # 1." While responding to that, Rune wrote that he would do whatever he felt like doing and also stated that ‘he never cry’. "Hi. If I want to cry, I cry. If I want to scream, I scream. That's me. And by the way, I never cry. This post was mainly mentioning that it's probably the shortest tournament I had in a long time in Europe and still 3 matches. Very efficient,” he wrote.
