Cristian Garin

Cristian Garin has been in a pretty consistent form in 2021. He has reached R16 4 times in his 7 appearances this season, winning the Chile Open 2021. The 24-year old Chilean won 2 ATP Titles in 1 month in 2020 before the pandemic halted all tennis activities. He comes to Monte Carlo from a R64 defeat at the 2021 Miami Open.

Felix Auger-Aliassime made a good start to 2021, reaching the finals at ATP-250 Melbourne but has since then not made it past the quarter-finals. The 20-year old Canandian is yet to win a title on the tour and will surely be looking to get his engines running for the upcoming Clay season. He comes into the tie from a R32 defeat at Miami Open 2021.
