Coach Patrick Mouratoglou believes «taking action is always the right decision» as he advises all tennis players and coaches to never be afraid to try. Mouratoglou, who worked with the great Serena Williams for a decade, now works with Simona Halep and Holger Rune.
Mouratoglou is widely considered to be one of the best coaches in the world of tennis. “If you think about the people who don’t act, which is the case with the vast majority of people, they don’t act because they are afraid and they are afraid of the risks involved in acting.
So it’s completely true in life, it’s true for tennis coaches in the same way. I’ve been asked this question 100 times: ‘Are you afraid your player will do this or that?’ and I always answered: ‘No, I’m not afraid, why would I be afraid? We just take action and we’ll figure it out.
There are always solutions along the way. But the best way to handle any situation is to face it, not walk away from it, because if you walk away from it, you have no chance of resolving it. So acting is always the right decision, ”Mouratoglou explained in a video posted on his Facebook account.
Mouratoglou guided Rune to his breakthrough at the Masters
After Halep decided to have a nose job and prematurely end her 2022 season, Mouratoglou agreed to work with Rune for the remainder of the 2022 season. During the indoor season, Rune appeared in five tournaments and reached four finals.
Rune capped off his 2022 season with his first Masters win when he defeated Novak Djokovic in the Paris Masters final. Rune did extremely well with Mouratoglou in his box, as Mouratoglou guided him to a Masters title and a top 10 ranking. It’s fair to say that Rune benefited greatly from Mouratoglou’s presence at the end of the 2022 season.
