"It was very close to perfection" - Rune rates his Stockholm Open performance

Holger Rune played 'close to perfection' in the Stockholm Open final to win the trophy, beating Tsitsipas 6-4 6-4 in the final.

It was the second time they played this year and the second time Rune proved victorious. Similar to Roland Garros, Rune was incredible from the baseline hitting winners left and right. The Greek player was unable to produce a good enough level to keep him away from chances and did not use the few he had on Rune's serve.

Holger didn't mind but admitted that he played as well as he could have:

“It was an unbelievable match from my side. I knew it was going to be difficult, but I just tried to stick to the game plan. I had to play my best tennis today and it was good that I could find the level. I am super happy."

He added:

“It was very close to perfection. I was making a lot of returns and playing pretty well behind my serve. Stefanos is an amazing player, who always makes it difficult. It was a super fun match to play.”
