Felix Auger-Aliassime waves goodbye to Wimbledon 2019

Wheels come off Felix Auger-Aliassime grass court run in loss to ‘Next Gen’ rival Humbert

Future star Felix Auger-Aliassime saw his summer of grass court success come to an abrupt end this evening as he was thrashed by French prodigy Ugo Humbert


Felix Auger-Aliassime will be gutted that he lost today but he can hold his head high thanks to his incredible run on the grass courts this season and no doubt he’ll be back for even more success

After braking records as the first plater born in after 2000 to make it to the mens’ singles, its a shame for him that it had to end this way, but his opponent was a worthy winner and someone we’ll also be hearing a lot more about.

Auger-Aliassime went down to Humber in 3 straight sets 6-4, 7-5, 6-3 on the new No.1 court and it was a fitting stage for a match we may well see repeated in even later stages of Grand Slam tournaments for years to come


Humbert now faces Djokovic and he will be hoping he can give the French fans something to cheer about and possibly do something that a Frenchman has done since Yannick Noah at roland Garros in 1983 and win a Grand Slam. It’s a long shot but at this year’s Wimbledon you just don’t know!
