Canadian hotshot Felix Auger-Aliassime: “Every time I play these players I believe I can win”
Rising star of the ATP tour Felix Auger-Aliassime hasn’t held back when asked what his goals were for this grass court season
The young Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime was asked about his intentions for this first grass court season as a touring pro and he was brutally honest in saying, “We said we’ll see how it goes but at the same time we prepared to win”.
“I’ve had two finals already this year on different surfaces and every time I play these players i believe that I can win. That’s the most important thing”
Talking more specifically about his tactics for grass he followed up by saying, “We asked how am i going to suit myself on grass, how am i going to move and luckily my movement and physical assets transferred well on this surface (grass) so i’m pretty happy with the work i’ve done”
