The Danish player loves hard indoor tennis and won the Stockholm tournament against Stefanos Tsitsipas before following up with a final loss in Basel against the unstoppable Felix Auger-Aliassime.

Enough to motivate the 18th player in the world to show that he too can be No. 1 in the near future: “Working in the “shadow” is not so bad for development when you are young.” I continue to work to reach the world No. 1 spot with passion and love for the game…”
