Will it be a light first round or more treacherous than expected? We will see it soon. What is certain is that on paper a Novak Djokovic it could have been better as stalked to prepare for her ride. The appointment with the history of the Serbian is that of the Calendar Slam and the first step will see him opposed to a very young tennis player who is making people speak very well of him.
It is about Holger Vitus Nodskov Rune, eighteen years old, was born on 29 April 2003 in Copenhagen and some time ago he made himself known for having candidly declared that he will break “Rafael Nadal’s record at Roland Garros”. Words that had aroused more than a smile and that continue to seem absolutely out of this world.
In the meantime, however, the boy has begun to grind tennis. The first victories at the ATP level have arrived and a roadmap at the Challenger level is starting to get impressive. At the moment the 18-year-old Scandinavian’s streak is thirteen. From 10 August onwards only victories, which earned him first successes at the Challenger in Verona, then at that of San Marino and, finally, the qualification for the US Open, with three consecutive victories.
Now the challenge to the number one in the world. Obviously Nole starts very favorite. But how easy this engagement with the boy sixteen years younger than him will be, only the pitch will tell us.
