Felix Auger-Aliassime v Malek Jaziri Head to Head
This is the first meeting between the two players.
Auger-Aliassime, Looking to Make More Waves
The Canadian is ranked the World No. 31, a feat he achieved after his stunning run in the Miami Open. As a qualifier, he reached the semifinal there after defeating the likes of Marton Fucsovics, Hubert Hurkacz, and Borna Coric.
In many ways, it was a career-defining moment for the 18-year-old, who also reached his first ATP final on the tour earlier this year. That run came in the ATP Rio, where he ultimately lost to Laslo Djere.
Needless to mention, Auger-Aliassime has a bright future ahead of him and still a great deal to learn. He has already proven his worth on the tour and day by day, he is becoming a better player. What’s more interesting here is that clay is his favourite surface and it will be intriguing to see how he fares in Barcelona.
He last played in Monte Carlo but lost to Alexander Zverev in the second round.
Jaziri’s Uneventful Spell on the Tour
Jaziri arrived in Barcelona with a win-loss record of 3-11. He has lost his opening games in his last three events in straight sets. There are not that many instances this season where the Tunisian has made it to the second round and beyond.
He last achieved this feat in Indian Wells, where he was knocked out by Gilles Simon. He also reached the quarterfinal in Pune but lost to Steve Darcis. In Barcelona, he began his campaign with a three-set win over Guido Andreozzi.
Auger-Aliassime v Jaziri Predictions & Tips
Jaziri is almost twice as old as the Canadian but he lacks the momentum and more importantly, the form to go head to head with his opponent. Given Felix’s recent form, he should be able to win this one rather comfortably. No surprises to be expected here.
Tip: Felix to win 2-0: 4/6 (William Hill)
