The 18-year-old Canadian sensation, Felix Auger-Aliassime takes down the former World Number three tennis player, Grigor Dimitrov, 6-4, 6-4 from the Queen’s Club Championships 2019. Their first-round match at Queen’s got delayed by two days and three players are already into the quarterfinals of the tournament.
Felix Auger-Aliassime has three matches piled up today at Fever-Tree Championships 2019 due to the rain in London over last two days. He is yet to play his doubles match where he is partnering Alex de Minaur and next, he would play his pre-quarterfinal match against the Australian, Nick Kyrgios who defeated the Spaniard, Roberto Carballes Baena earlier today.
The young face of ATP, Felix Auger-Aliassime displayed some phenomenal forehand winners and he was dominant on the volley. At 3-3 of the first set, Dimitrov’s double faulted gave rise to the premier break of the match and later, held all his services games and sealed the set 6-4.
In his first of potentially *three* matches today, Félix Auger-Aliassime claims the first set 6-4 over former Wimbledon semi-finalist and #NittoATPFinals champ Grigor Dimitrov!

In the second set, World Number 21, Felix Auger-Aliassime began by taking a break in the first game and then led by 2-0. The eighth seed Canadian rising star continued to slam his forehand winners in the match, but he couldn’t get rid off his unforced errors and he took 47 minutes to wrap up the second set.
Felix Auger-Aliassime reached his first career grass court finals last Sunday in Stuttgart and over there he lost to Matteo Berrettini in straight sets.
