Rune Withdraws From Los Cabos Open With Another Injury Scare Looming

Rune Withdraws From Los Cabos Open With Another Injury Scare Looming

Holger Rune dealt with some physical issues in the past few weeks, and they seemingly are a problem as he withdrew from the 2024 Los Cabos Open.

After the young Dane crashed out early from the Australian Open, many thought he would bounce back in Europe. He did by playing really well in Montpellier, but then he retired during his semifinal match with an apparent arm injury.

Updates from his camp played down the severity of the injury, and he returned rather quickly. He took part in the Ultimate Tennis Showdown event in Oslo but then withdrew after the first day.

Despite all of that, Rune traveled to Rotterdam to take part in the 2024 Rotterdam Open, which is an ATP 500 event. He would win one match but then lose the next match. After the match, he provided a positive update, but things changed quite quickly.

"I enjoyed it here @abnamroopen. Exit definitely too early but not a bad match today and credit to my opponent. I will go back to work and level up on the areas I need to improve. Thanks for support."

He didn't look particularly injured in that match, but he didn't look quite right either. His customary update after the event didn't mention any kind of injury either, but he promised to work harder in the future.

The schedule had him playing the Los Cabos Open, but the Danish number one withdrew from that event, seemingly confirming that he's truly not right physically.

All of this maybe a precaution to avoid making an injury worse, but it seems like he tried to play through it in Oslo and Rotterdam, but it's quite clear that he needs more time.

The Sunshine Double in Indian Wells and Miami is coming up, and those two ATP 1000 tournaments are definitely worth getting healthy for for the 20-year-old.
