After a strong ATP Cup performance for Canada, Auger-Aliassime, who started the season ranked 11th in the world, soon rose to number nine.
On Monday, June 27, the ninth-ranked player in the world, Félix Auger-Aliassime, will play against American Maxime Cressy in the opening round of the 2022 Wimbledon. After a strong ATP Cup performance for Canada, Auger-Aliassime, who started the season ranked 11th in the world, soon rose to number nine. Since then, he has mostly maintained that ranking, which is the highest of his career. A career-best performance on grass for Cressy was made possible by victories against Reilly Opelka, Dan Evans, and Cameron Norrie, all of whom she faced at winning odds of 1/1, 7/5, and 17/10, respectively.
The Canadian reached the fourth round of the French Open for the first time in nine attempts, winning three consecutive matches. While Cressy’s task will be significantly more difficult against a player of Auger-caliber. Auger-Aliassime is a big favorite here, but there’s a catch: his opponent’s consistency on grass may put him to the test. The Canadian is expected to win, but not before Cressy has won a set here.
Auger-Aliassime vs Cressy are scheduled to face each other on Tuesday, June 28 in the first round of the 2022 Championships. The timing of the match has not been decided yet. The Championships are scheduled to begin on June 27 and go on until July 10. There are a number of exciting matches on the second day as the likes of Nadal, Tsitsipas, Auger-Aliassime, Cilic and Schwartzman will be in action.
