Rising Danish star Holger Rune, 17, has revealed how his perfect player would look like. Rune, ranked at No. 846 in the world, says his perfect player would have the serve of world No. 5 Daniil Medvedev or Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios.
When it comes to the forehand shot, the 17-year-old believes no one does it better than 2019 Nitto ATP Finals champion Stefanos Tsitsipas. As expected, the rising Danish star selected wold No. 1 Novak Djokovic's backhand while creating his perfect player.
When it comes to the movement, Rune once again picked Djokovic but also mentioned world No. 9 Gael Monfils. Record 20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer also made the list as Rune said his perfect player would have the volley of the former world No.
1. When it comes to swag, Ruud had an interesting choice as he mentioned Kyrgios, Nadal and Federer.
Rune, the 2019 French Open boys' singles champion, is one of the most promising and talented players from his generation.

Swag - Kyrgios/Federer/Nadal (that's some mix...) — José Morgado (@josemorgado) May 6, 2020
After losing his first five matches of the season, Rune found his form as he was on a four-match winning streak before the Tour got suspended. The Dane won back-to-back Davis Cup matches and made the quarterfinal at an ITF event before the Tour got abruptly suspended.
