He received a walkover into the final when Milos Raonic withdrew. In the final he was defeated by Matteo Berrettini, despite having set points to win the second set.

Playing style[edit]

Auger-Aliassime is an all-court tennis player. His favorite surface is clay.[72] His favorite shot is the forehand, and his favorite tournament is the Rogers Cup, because it is played in his hometown of Montreal.[73] Auger Aliassime also possesses a strong serve and moves well around the court. He is able to generate power easily off both wings, but is sometimes prone to unforced errors. Additionally, Felix plays with high intensity at each point, which can wear down his opponents during long matches.
