New triumph for the Danish comet: Wins tournament in Italy

The Danish tenniskomet Holger Rune delivered on Saturday, yet a result that bodes well for his future.

the 16-year-old Rune stroking thus the way to the top by invitationsturneringen Red Bull Next Gen Open.

the Tournament is played in Milan in connection with the Next Gen ATP Finals.

The game is played by a specially-pointformat, and the Rune ended up winning Saturday's final with 4-1, 4-1, 4-2, over the Italian Enrico Dalla Valle.

Dalla Valle, who ranks as the number 430 on the men's world rankings, had beaten Rune in the group stage earlier in the week, but in the final, the 21-year-old did not catch up with the dane.

Holger Rune has had a terrific 2019, where he ended as juniorspiller by winning sæsonfinalen and put themselves on the verdensranglistens the first place.

Earlier in the year he won also the French Open for juniors.

Now is the plan to bet fully on his career as a seniorspiller. He is provisionally number 1008 in the world.
