The Dane crashed to Ruud after losing to the Norwegian in the quarter-finals at Roland Garros in May. Ron then stated that Rod yelled “JAAA” at him when the two were on their way to the locker room, a claim that Rod certainly rejected.
– It’s what he claims wrong. This is really not what happened. The Norwegian tennis star told Discovery that it was a big lie, and it was disappointing to be lied to.
When asked by a Danish journalist before the major tournament in England, Rudd replied that he wanted to get rid of the Danish talent.
I haven’t seen Holger since the match in Paris, so I haven’t had a chance to talk to him. He lied to the media, and I was pretty clear that didn’t happen. “I respect Holger as a young player, good and fearless,” Rudd says.
– Like I said after the match, he’s acting a little crazy, and we’ve seen that on TV. I don’t want to say much more than that, but I hope to speak with him here or at Bastad, so we can move on with this.
