Felix Auger Aliassime’s 2021 so far
Canadian Felix Auger Aliassime went out in the fourth at the 2021 Australian Open and followed that up with a first round exit at Roland Garros.
He beat idol Roger Federer in Halle, before reaching the quarterfinals at Wimbledon.
The 21-year-old beat Nick Kyrgios in the third round and managed to beat German Alexander Zverev in five sets in the fourth round.
That win set up a match with close friend (more on that later) Matteo Berrettini in the quarter-final. However, he lost in four sets.
Felix has a disappointing Olympics, losing to 190th ranked Australian Max Purcell after Andy Murray pulled out.
He got off to a better start at this year’s US Open, beating Russia’s Evgeny Donskoy in the first round.
