The next villain of the tour Holger Rune spoke to Ekstra Bladet, a danish tabloid, and said:

"If you saw Roger Federer as a youngster, back then he was maybe 40 times worse than I was - and he is one of the most beloved tennis players on the tour, so I think I have plenty of time to get an even better image,"
"I have an extreme passion for this sport, and sometimes I show it too much. But I'm 19, I'm still young, and I work every day to bring out only the positive in my attitude, and that's a process,"
"I just see it as differences, and I think that's nice. If all people were the same and thought the same, it would be horrible to live in this world. It's cool that you think what you want, and you like the character you like,"
"Fortunately, I have many good Danish fans and followers who follow my career and want the best for me, and I really appreciate that."

I didn't really see Federer at 19, but I think he made matured by then?
Rune is already too much of a polarizing player and has showed it for the world to see (whereas Federer's and Borg's bad temper days were before they broke through), so he will never be as loved as Roger regardless of what happens from here.
Other than that I don't really disagree with anything he says.

It's like 30°C a day on Mallorca and it has rained about twice this month. Don't expect the grass to have the same lush wetness that the grass on rainy Britain shows.
