Rune, on the frozen ranking: "I'm angry, the system is unfair"

One of the main points of conflict during 2020 and much of 2021 was the frozen ranking. This system that favored some and harmed others, depending on the situation of each one, generated certain criticisms in the world of tennis and one of them was that of Holger Rune (124th), a tennis player from Denmark who spoke about it.

I feel tired and angry because I think the system is unfair. I love my tennis, but you have to compete on equal terms, “was the powerful message left by the 18-year-old tennis player on his Instagram account.

In turn, the young man stressed that “looking 2 years ago in the normal ranking today it would be ranked 62nd in the world and no.124. Does it matter? Yes, when you are ambitious and work hard, it is important to get your reward. With that classification I could participate in better tournaments and I would feel that my hard work has paid off. “

It should be remembered that in August of this year, for the first time since the circuit returned after the pandemic stoppage, the ATP ranking points are added and subtracted through the traditional methodology.

“You know that I am a very hardworking man and normally I never complain. This year I have fought very hard to achieve my goals and become the Top 100. The ATP has continually made it very difficult for me and many other young players to come.“Rune added.

In this way, the situation of the current No. 124 in the world is added to that experienced by different tennis players to those that the methodology that was used in this last time, in a certain way, harmed them.
