After getting eliminated in the very first round of the French Open 2021, the victory over Querrey will certainly increase the confidence of Felix. He hasn’t won a title on tour this year and thus, it’ll be intriguing to see how he prepares himself ahead of the finals.

Felix drew a tough draw at the ATP Stuttgart Open 2019. However, he was able to top his side of the draw by defeating the likes of Milos Raonic in the semi-finals and Dustin Brown- who eliminated Alexander Zverev, in the third round of the tournament.

The Canadian player was just 18-years-old back then but gave some tough competition to Matteo Berrettini in the finals. However, the Italian didn’t lose his calm and won the match in straight sets. The final scoreline of that match was 6-4, 7(13)-6(11). As a result, Felix ended up as the runner-up at the tournament.

This year, the Canadian can turn the tables around if he manages to win the title. If he succeeds in Stuttgart, it’ll be a big boost for him ahead of the Wimbledon Championships 2021.

Fans have huge expectations from the 20-year-old and want him to end on the winning side this year. Will Felix be able to win his first ATP Stuttgart Open title in 2021?
