Roland-Garros broadcast “obsessed” by his brother

Danish tennis player Holger Rune is not the only member of his family to have experienced a moment of escape at Roland-Garros.

Alma Rune, the 19-year-old’s model sister, caught the eye of the media in Rune’s fourth-round win over fourth-seeded Stefanos Tsitsipas 7-5, 3-6, 6-3 . 6-4. The cameras turned to the stunner at Roland Garros, with much of it on Twitter.

“The fight over who gets more screen time, Rune’s sister or Stefanos’ dad,” one user wrote.

Egyptian sports journalist Reem Abulleil shared, “I’ve never seen a show so obsessed with a single figure in the stands, because this director was with Rune’s sister the whole game.”

Rune’s memorable run, which included an upset from Canadian Denis Shapovalov, ended Wednesday in a quarter-final loss to Norway’s Casper Ruud, 6-1, 4-6, 7-6, 6-3.
