Felix Auger-Aliassime is one of the brightest young talent on the ATP Tour. Hailing from Montreal, Canada, he is the youngest player to win a main draw match at 14 years and 11 months old on the ATP Challenger level and is one of the only seven players to win a Challenger title by the age of 16.
He had won the 2015 US Open Boys’ Doubles title and in the 2016 US Open, clinched the Boys’ Single title. On the ATP tour, he has been to 8 finals but is yet to win a title yet. But given his consistent results that have seen him break into the Top-20 of the ATP rankings already, a title is not far for the young Canadian.
Felix had made it till the 4th round of all Grand Slams except the French Open, where in his two appearances so far, he is yet to go past the second round. The 2020 US Open was the first time he made it till the 4th round of any Grand Slam and followed it up with reaching the 4th round at the 2021 Australian Open and then at the 2021 Wimbledon.
Who is Felix Auger-Aliassime’s coach?
Felix recently made a big addition to his coaching team which comprised of former professional tennis players from France, Guillaume Marx and Frederic Fontang. In the month of April, 2021, Felix added Toni Nadal to his coaching team ahead of the Clay season for the 2021 season.
While Marx and Fontang did play tennis professionally, Nadal did not. But his vast experience in coaching his nephew, Rafael Nadal along with whom he won 16 Grand Slam titles making him the 2nd most successful coach in tennis, Felix has a strong team to mentor and guide him.
The trio of coaches has certainly helped Felix who made it to two Grass finals and also saw the Canadian youngster make it till the 4th round of Wimbledon in just his 2nd tournament appearance at the Grand Slam and stands a chance to progress ahead as well.
