Biography

Félix Auger-Aliassime (born August 8, 2000 in Montréal, Québec, Canada) is a Canadian professional tennis player. He reached a career-high ATP singles ranking of No. 10 on November 15, 2021 and a career-high ATP doubles ranking of No. 60 on November 1, 2021.

In 2012, Auger-Aliassime won the Open Super 12, one of the most important U12 junior tournaments in the world. In 2015, he won the under-18 title at the Eddie Herr International Championships. Also in 2015, Auger-Aliassime and compatriots Denis Shapovalov and Benjamin Sigouin won the Junior Davis Cup title, the first time in history for Canada. The same year, he became the youngest player ever to qualify (14 years, 7 months) and to win a main draw match (14 years, 11 months) on the ATP Challenger Tour. At the junior event of the French Open in 2016, he reached his first Grand Slam singles final where he was defeated by Geoffrey Blancaneaux in three sets, despite holding a championship point. Auger-Aliassime won the 2016 US Open junior singles title and the 2015 US Open junior doubles title with compatriot Denis Shapovalov. With his titles at the Open Sopra Steria de Lyon in June 2017 and the Copa Sevilla in September 2017, he became the seventh-youngest player in history to win an ATP Challenger title (16 years, 10 months) and the second-youngest to win multiple ATP Challenger titles (17 years, 1 month). In June 2018, Auger-Aliassime successfully defended his title in Lyon, making him the youngest player ever to retain an ATP Challenger title (17 years, 10 months). His three ATP Challenger titles are the second most for a player aged 17 and under (he is tied with Novak Djokovic and Juan Martín del Potro, and second only to Richard Gasquet who has five). In 2019 at the Rio Open, he advanced to his first ATP final, becoming the youngest ever ATP 500 finalist, but was defeated by Laslo Đere. At the Miami Open also in 2019, he became the youngest men's singles semifinalist in the tournament's 35-year history and the first teenage semifinalist since Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic in 2007. He was also the first player born in or after 2000 to reach the semifinals at any ATP Tour Masters 1000 event. The same year, he reached his second ATP final at the Lyon Open, losing this time to Benoît Paire. Again in 2019, he advanced to his third ATP final at his first tournament on grass, but was defeated by Matteo Berrettini. In 2020 at the Rotterdam Open, he played in his fourth ATP singles final where he was defeated by the defending champion Gaël Monfils. The next week at the Open 13 in Marseille, he reached his second straight ATP final, losing this time to Stefanos Tsitsipas. In October 2020, he was defeated in his sixth straight ATP final, losing to Alexander Zverev in Cologne. In November 2020, Auger-Aliassime captured his first ATP doubles title, winning the Masters 1000 event in Paris with Hubert Hurkacz. In February 2021, he lost to Daniel Evans in the final of the 250 Series in Melbourne, his seventh straight loss in an ATP singles final. In June 2021, he lost in his eighth ATP singles final, this time to Marin Čilić at the 250 Series in Stuttgart.

Auger-Aliassime was born in Montréal but raised in L'Ancienne-Lorette, a suburb of Québec City. His father Sam Aliassime is from Togo and his mother Marie Auger from the province of Québec. He has an older sister Malika who also plays tennis. He started playing tennis at 4 and trained at the Club Avantage as a member of the Académie de Tennis Hérisset-Bordeleau (now Académie de tennis Aliassime) in Québec City. He was a member of Tennis Canada's National Training Centre in Montréal from 2014 to 2017.
