Auger-Aliassime is making his Laver Cup debut and is regarded as one of the most exciting young talents to enter the big league. He started competing on the ATP Tour at a young age and won his first main draw match at Challenger level when he was 14, his first Challenger title at 16. He made his top-25 debut at 18, making him the youngest to do so since Australian Lleyton Hewitt two decades earlier.
Auger-Aliassime was born in Montreal and raised in Quebec. His father, Sam, is a tennis coach and immigrated from Togo, while his mother, Marie, is of French-Canadian descent. Felix now donates $5 of every point he wins to support children in Togo. He started playing tennis at 4 and shares a birthday with his idol, Roger Federer. He added Toni Nadal, the uncle of 20-time major champion Rafael, to his coaching team earlier this year.
Auger-Aliassime recorded his highest singles ranking at No.15 after defeating world No.6 Alex Zverev to reach his first Grand Slam quarterfinal at Wimbledon in 2020. Also this season, he advanced to the Stuttgart final and upset 10-time champion Federer to reach the semis at Halle. While he is still to win a singles title, he has been a finalist on eight occasions over the past three years and picked up his first doubles title at the 2020 Paris Masters with Hubert Hurkacz.
