Felix Auger-Aliassime Is Targeting The Big Titles

It’s a new year and a new Felix Auger-Aliassime. The Canadian entered last year without a title and without much progress on breaking through to that next level.

But Auger-Aliassime had a huge 2022 highlighted by winning four titles in five finals and tacking on a 16-match win streak. The 22-year-old finished the season winning 19 of his last 22 matches culminating with a first-ever Davis Cup title for Canada.

The world No. 6 hopes to carry that momentum into 2023 where he season begins this week in Adelaide.

“I feel like momentum plays a huge role on your confidence. For me, it’s been great in the last few months,” said Auger-Aliassime.

“I try to recreate it, not just like think it’s some sort of stars aligned or some type of luck that you’re just trying to ride a wave on. I think there’s reasons behind success. I feel like it’s about understanding why you’re succeeding constantly and trying to do it again.

“With wins and losses, all the time I try to see what’s working, what’s not,” he added. “Then I try to improve and improve and improve.

“But things have been working really well in the last few months for me, so hopefully that keeps going. I’m confident with the way I’ve been training, with the way I’ve prepared.

“My body’s feeling good. My mind also. I’m confident that I can keep on playing some good tennis.”

Auger-Aliassime will have points to defend ahead with the Australian Open quarterfinal, Rotterdam title and Marseille final coming off in the first two months. But he’ll have run to run after until the fall season.

“It’s the same target every time: to play well, improve from the player I was the year before,” he continued.

“I hope I’m a better player now than I was a year ago. At least I feel like it.

“It’s going to be the same thing coming, trying to be a little bit better,” he said. “I’m trying to win the biggest titles.”

SG1 Says:

Well…winning the Davis Cup has been a precursor to many players having Grand Slam success. As a fellow Canadian, it would be awesome to see him lift some big trophies very soon. The talent is all there.

I played in a court adjacent to him and it was an impressive spectacle. He’s silky smooth out there
