Despite this, Rune’s performance was very outstanding, as he dominated the action of the match in all areas, both in service and return. The Dane looks very comfortable in the midfield in Acapulco and already knows his next opponent for the semi-finals.
This told us about his feelings after the match and how Matteo’s retirement was. – I felt very good, I played very disciplined and very stable. I attacked right on almost every point. It was a very difficult situation, in fact I wish Berrettin all the best. It’s never nice to end a game like this, but if I focus on my part, I played a very solid match«.
Duel against De Minaur
He told us this about his next match against De Miñaur in the semi-finals. «I expect a tough game. With Alex, they are always tough matches. I met him twice last year and it was very difficult. So I have to be 100% and focused, trying to repeat the good things I did against Berrettin and do everything.«.
The atmosphere of tennis in Mexico
Playing in Mexico has been a pleasant experience for Holger and he spoke to us about his feelings for the Acapulco crowd. «The fans here are amazing. They’ve shown me a lot of support. In key moments they are very encouraging and have great energy, so it’s special to play in Mexico«.
Without a favorite brand
Given the circumstances of the tournament, Rune is one of the contenders for the title, but he will remove the favorite tag. – Right now I’m trying to take it one game at a time. I’m just focusing on tomorrow’s match, I don’t even know who is in the other semi-final, I forgot. So I’m just thinking about Alex, about tomorrow, where I have to be 100 percent focused, go out and enjoy the moment.»
