    Hubert Hurkacz defeated in Paris by Holger Rune

    Hubert Hurkacz lost to Danish tennis player Holger Rune 5:7, 1:6 and dropped out in the second round of the ATP-ranked Masters 1000 event in Paris. The Pole thus lost his chances to advance to the season-ending Masters’ tournament in Turin.

    The first set between Hubert Hurkacz and the rising tennis star from Denmark was quite even. In the fifth game, the Pole defended a breakpoint. Then, unfortunately, in the 11th game, he committed the only double service error of the game. His rival went ahead 6:5, and after a while, he took a 1:0 lead in the set after 42 minutes of play.



    Holger Rune started playing aggressively. He put pressure on the 25-year-old Pole, and Hubert did not do well in such a situation. The Pole was also not helped in this match by his service and helplessness crept into his game. The rival didn’t waste the chance, confidently winning the second set 6:1 and the whole match in 64 minutes.



    The Pole has so far been ranked ninth in the ATP Race ranking. Due to the loss to Rune, Hurkacz will not play in this season’s ATP Finals in Turin.
