Felix Augur-Aliassime v Gianluca Mager Head to Head
The pair have never played each other before. This will be the first match between the 21-year old Canadian and the Italian, who is five years older.
The Nearly Man Augur-Aliassime
Augur-Aliassime is the nearly man of the ATP tour. He has been in eight senior singles finals and lost all of them, including the Murray River and Stuttgart Open events this year.
That is despite hiring Rafael Nadal’s uncle, Toni. As his coach.
At 21 he has time on his side, but it is an unwanted record that he will want to get rid of as soon as possible next season.
He has good memories of Paris from last year. Although he lost in the first round of the singles, he won the doubles with partner Hubert Hurkasz.
Although he has done well in Grand Slams this year – he reached the semi-finals of the US Open and the quarter-finals of Wimbledon – his record in Masters tournaments has been less than stellar, with a quarter-final in Cincinnati, the highlight in what has otherwise been a sea of early defeats.
Last week in Vienna he reached the quarter-finals, before losing to the eventual champion, Alexander Zverev, in three sets.
Clay Court Qualifier Mager
Mager is better known as a clay court player, with all but one of his wins on the junior tours coming on that surface, as well as his one appearance in a senior final in Santiago last year before lockdown, when he was beaten by Cristian Garin.
However, he did manage to get to the quarter-finals in Sofia recently, before losing to Gael Monfils.
With his ranking not high enough to earn an automatic spot in the main draw, he was forced to qualify, meeting Henri Laaksonen of Switzerland in a first round clash that was closer than the Italian would have liked, Mager winning in three sets.
He was also taken to three sets in his next match by Yoshida Nishioka of Japan, the world number 80, dropping the first set to the world number 80. However, he rallied, cruised through the second set for the loss of just one game, and consolidated an early break in the third set to claim the match comfortably enough in the end.
Augur-Aliassime v Mager Prediction and Tip
Despite Augur-Aliassime’s poor record in Masters’ tournaments this season, he will start the clear favourite against a player more adept on a clay court.
