‘My game is improving and I’m feeling good,’ says Felix Auger-Aliassime

Felix Auger-Aliassime says he is very happy with his game despite losing to John Isner at the Miami Masters on Sunday.

The 20-year-old was unfortunate to lose in straight sets to the big-serving former champion, with him coming out on the wrong end of two tiebreaks.

However, Auger-Aliassime says he will not allow the loss to derail him, insisting he really feels like he is in the right groove at the moment.

“If I dwell on my losses and I don’t show a trait of character and resilience I’m not going in the right direction,” Felix Auger-Aliassime said after the defeat.

“Honestly, I’m playing well, I’m feeling good. In this period, as well, I don’t want to be too hard on myself. I think there have been tougher moments also.

“My game is improving in the right direction. Also, I think my mentality is, as well.

“I lost close matches this year so far. Honestly, I will keep going and find a way that it’s going to fall on my side.

“Sometimes it’s close matches like today where in the past that it’s fallen on my side before.

“Of course every time I step on the court and to work, I want to improve my shots from my serve to my backhand to my forehand. But overall just keep doing what I’m doing.”
