A talented youngster, Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime has often been tipped to be one of the stars in the making. After his solid runs in 2019 and 2020, he looks to be getting closer to that dream of capturing some big titles on the ATP circuit and if you are looking to buy and use Felix Auger-Aliassime’s racquet here’s all the information about it along with its specifications and modifications if any.
Auger-Aliassime holds a few records as a youngster including winning a main draw encounter at less than 15 years of age on the Challenger tour, and a Challenger tournament victory before he was 16.
As on 2020, the Canadian has also reached the final of six ATP tournaments but as luck would have it, he hasn’t won a single title. That is bound to change and soon.
Auger-Aliassime was only 18 years old when he not only broke into the 100 of the rankings but then also made it to the 25, which included an ATP final at the 2019 Rio Open. That was his maiden entry into a title-deciding encounter on the ATP tour.
Another final at the Lyon Open followed soon after that in 2019 itself before he made it his third at the Stuttgart Open – his first deep run on grass at the highest level.
In 2020, this former junior US Open winner entered three more finals – at the Rotterdam Open, Marseille Open and Cologne Open – before losing to Gael Monfils, Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alexander Zverev.
And he round off the season with a fourth round appearance at the US Open, his best showing at a Grand Slam till then.
