Bio Rune was born in Denmark. His mother was named Aneke Rune and his father was named Anders Nødskov. He also has a sister named Alma. He began playing tennis at the age of 6 because his sister played and started to take the sport seriously. Throughout his childhood, he was coached by Lars Christensen, who remains his head coach and, along with his mother, is credited as his biggest inspiration. His idols growing up were fellow tennis players Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer.

Holger officially turned pro in 2020 at the age of 16. At the 2020 Auckland Open, Rune received a wildcard into the qualifying draw but lost to Vasek Pospisil in straight sets.

In July 2020, Holger became the youngest player to compete at the Ultimate Tennis Showdown (UTS), where French player Corentin Moutet defeated him.

In September 2020, Rune won his first ITF title at an M25 event in Switzerland. He would make three more ITF finals by the end of 2020, winning two of the three. Rune made three more ITF finals at the start of 2021, winning one.

In March 2021, Rune made his ATP debut as a wildcard in the Argentina Open. He lost in the first round to 5th seeded Albert Ramos Viñolas in 3 sets. At the Chile Open the next week, Rune was accepted into the qualifying draw as a wildcard. He went on to win the qualifying round and record his first ATP match win against Sebastián Báez in straight sets. He would then follow this up with his first top 30 victory over Benoît Paire in straight sets to reach his first ATP quarterfinal, where he would lose to Federico Delbonis in straight sets.

In June 2021, Rune won his first ATP Challenger title in Biella. His victory was overshadowed by homophobic slurs he made during his semifinal match. The ATP investigated his actions, and he was fined for his actions.

In July 2021, Rune received another wave of wildcards into several clay-court events during the summer clay-court swing. These events include the Swedish Open, Croatia Open, and Austrian Open Kitzbühel. He posted a few more match wins in these tournaments, which boosted his ranking to a career-high of No. 145 on 23 August 2021 after winning the 2021 Verona Challenger in Italy, making him the second-youngest male player in the top 150.

Rune entered the 2021 US Open Qualifying as the 24th seed. He won all three of his qualifying matches to qualify for the 2021 US Open for his grand slam debut. He played world No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the first round, where he lost the first set and won the second set in a tiebreak but started to cramp late in the third set and eventually lost the match 1–6, 7–6(7–5), 2–6, 1–6.
