Felix Auger Aliassime was born in Montreal in 2000 and raised in Ciry, Quebec. His father is Togo-born, and his mother is a French Canadian. He won the US Open Junior Singles in 2016, a year after winning the Flushing Meadows Doubles. In 2019, at the age of 19, he achieved a career-high ranking of 17 in the world. Auger Aliassime has reached the fourth round of the Australian Open and the US Open, but this will be his first quarter-final appearance at Wimbledon. By winning his only ever meeting with Roger Federer at the Halle Open earlier this summer, the Canadian demonstrated that he was going to be a force to be reckoned with on grass.
At 17 years and one month, he is the second-youngest player to win multiple Challenger titles, and at 17 years and ten months, he is the youngest player to defend a Challenger title. Auger-Aliassime had a successful junior career, reaching No. 2 in the world and winning the boys’ singles title at the 2016 US Open. With compatriot Denis Shapovalov, he also won the boys’ doubles title at the 2015 US Open. Auger-Aliassime debuted in the top 100 and top 25 on the ATP Tour at the age of 18 in a year that culminated in his first ATP final in February 2019 at the Rio Open, an ATP 500 event.
Despite being 2 sets to love up, Auger-Aliassime lost in the fourth round of the 2021 Australian Open to Russian qualifier Aslan Karatsev. Toni Nadal, Rafael Nadal’s uncle and former coach, was hired as a new coach in April, just in time for the clay-court season. Auger-Aliassime was defeated in the first round of the French Open by Andreas Seppi. In the 2021 Stuttgart Open final, he lost to Marin Cilic for the eighth time (out of eight final appearances). He reached the semifinals of the Halle Open by shocking 10-time tournament champion, 5th seed, and childhood idol Roger Federer in the second round, securing his fourth Top-10 victory (4-15) and one of his career’s most significant victories.
Felix Auger Aliassime is dating Nina Ghaibi, a Croatian equestrian. He revealed they had been together for two years on Instagram in March 2021. Nina has over 5000 Instagram followers, and with her boyfriend’s success at Wimbledon, she can probably expect that number to rise.
