Holger Rune attacks Stan Wawrinka: "Have you got nothing to say now?"

Holger Rune and Stan Wawrinka in Indian Wells created a great controversy, especially the Dane, at the end of the match. The two tennis players started a real battle in the third round match of the Californian Master 1000, with the young Danish tennis player who, on the brink of defeat, recovered by saving three match points and taking the match to the third set.

In the end it was Stan who prevailed, but not without difficulty. Finished the challenge, finished everything? Not even in the slightest. There had been bad blood between Rune and Wawrinka since last year's Paris-Bercy, when the Swiss, at the time of the handshake, turned to his opponent telling him to stop behaving like a child on the court Stan had, in fact, appeared annoyed by the continuous behavior of Rune, perhaps excessive in the celebrations after the victory of some points.

At the time it was the Dane, who would later win the tournament, who triumphed and the idea was passed that Wawrinka's reaction had been dictated by frustration at the defeat.

Now that the scenario has turned upside down, Rune has not missed the opportunity to remove that pebble from the shoe that he had been wearing for months and, once he met Wawrinka at the net, he said to him: "Do you have nothing to say now?" The three-time Grand Slam champion, for his part, perhaps surprised by this provocation, pretended not to understand, replying: "What do you want me to say?" And at the end of the meeting he increased the dose, declaring: "The truth is that I can say little about this.

Just comment that he's a great young tennis player, he's got huge potential, but he's building a reputation in the locker room that he's going to regret one day." Wawrinka is ready to challenge Jannik Sinner in the 4th round of the Californian ATP Masters 1000.

It will be a very great match, with two generation who will battle on the court.
