Auger-Aliassime is returning from a second Laver Cup debut as the top-ranked player on Team World. The Canadian is regarded as one of the most exciting young talents to enter the big league, and in 2022 broke into the top 10 after helping Canada win the ATP Cup. 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.
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.
Auger-Aliassime recorded his highest singles ranking at No.9 after defeating world No.3 Alex Zverev in January at the ATP Cup. He went on to beat Top-10 players Andrey Rublev and Stefanos Tsitsipas at Rotterdam for his first ATP Tour title. In 2021, Auger-Aliassime advanced to the Wimbledon quarterfinals and reached the semifinals of the US Open. He continued his strong run at Grand Slam level in January, pushing eventual finalist Daniil Medvedev to five sets in the quarterfinals at the Australian Open.
