Mortensen is a former player who represented Denmark getting to a career-high ranking of 301 and he spoke about Rune following his surprise win over Novak Djokovic in Paris. Speaking to Eurosport, the former coach of Li Na and Caroline Wozniacki said:

"An exceptional performance. Now he has really shown the tennis world that he has established himself among the very best tennis players on the ATP tour. He is a player that we will see among the very best in the world going forward. It is one of the biggest Danish sporting achievements in the year 2022.”

Taking a look at his future Mortensen singled out winning a grand slam as the next big thing he should be aiming at:

“Now we have to look a little ahead. Now he is among the top 10 in the world, and then you start talking about Grand Slam titles. He has been in one quarter-final at Roland Garros this year. Now the next goal must be for him to play in his first Grand Slam final. When you beat some of the best tennis players in the world, as he has done in recent weeks, and then defeating Djokovic, only underlines his playing qualities."
