Young tennis star from Canada Felix Auger-Aliassime looks back at his 2023 run in a recent interview on Eurosport. There have been a lot of speculations about the Canadian and his connections with Toni Nadal as his coach. In the interview, the 23-year-old clears the air around this situation.

Felix joined hands with Rafael Nadal’s uncle Toni Nadal back in 2021. For a couple of tournaments, the whole world saw a change in the Canadian who seemed to be playing extremely well before suffering a hip injury. However, things took a weird turn for the 23-year-old when his coach refused to sit in his box during his match against Rafa.

Lately, Auger-Aliassime has given an update on his coaching staff and how they will continue with the Spaniard and hopefully can make the most out of his occasional visits. The 23-year-old Canadian said to Eurosport:

We continue and we will even do again what we did in 2021 and 2022: the objective is for his presence to be more recurring, for him to come a little more often. With Frédéric, everything continues well. At this moment, I love how my team works.

The youngster might not have had a great outing on the court but outside tennis he has done well. The 23-year-old partnered with a company to work on charitable projects to support and spread education to children in Tago, which is his father’s hometown.
