It's not the way he wanted his maiden ATP Finals to go, but it was a pretty good effort. He lost against Novak Djokovic in the first match. He 'won' the second match after Stefanos Tsitsipas retired and then gave Jannik Sinner a pretty tough time in another losing effort in the 3rd match.
If we look at the whole season, it was a very good season for Rune, and even the performances at the ATP Finals were pretty solid. He could have done more of course, especially in the second part of the season, but he's happy with the first full season on the ATP level.
I had a good season. When you finish in the top eight, you can be proud of yourself. I think that I could have done some things better this year - actually, a lot of things. That's how it is. It's a learning process. Next year I'm going to try to learn from this year. It was actually my first I think full year on the tour. Even last year I played one challenger. It's a good experience to be at this level.
Next year will be a major year for Rune, and it's not so far away. He'll have some time to digest everything that happened and then it's back to the grind. We're less than 60 days away from the start of the new season and it's going to be an important one for Rune.
Who knows. We'll see the next days. I'm going to try to get over it as fast as possible. Obviously there's no more matches this season. It's finished. It's done. There's no need to worry about anything. I wish the rest of the players good luck at this event. It's going to be exciting to see who is going to lift the trophy. I'm just going to take some rest and start my pre-season.
