Felix Auger-Aliassime assesses his ATP Finals title chances

Felix Auger-Aliassime says there’s no reason he can’t believe he can win the ATP Finals. Auger-Aliassime, 22, is expected to debut in the prestigious season-ending tournament. In addition to Auger-Aliassime, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Daniil Medvedev, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Casper Ruud, Taylor Fritz and Andrey Rublev will also be competing.

World number 1 Carlos Alcaraz was forced to withdraw from the ATP Finals due to an abdominal injury. “All the players who participate, I’ve already faced them, I’ve beaten them. So, for me, there is no reason not to attend this tournament with the aim of winning it.

It’s one of the toughest tournaments to win because only the best in the world compete. But there is no reason, in my opinion, not to aspire to victory,” said Auger-Aliassime, per We Love Tennis.

Auger-Aliassime recently beat Djokovic and won three consecutive titles

In late September, Auger-Aliassime surprised Djokovic in the Laver Cup.

So Auger-Aliassime won three titles in as many weeks – Florence, Antwerp and Basel. After winning his first victory over Djokovic, Auger-Aliassime decided to do an analysis as he wanted to understand what he did so well that allowed him to beat a top player like the Serbian.

“It’s very, very relevant what he’s saying. And it’s true that confidence can be something in the air that we can’t identify, but I thought about it after the Laver Cup, when I beat Djokovic. .

It wasn’t just a good day, that I was on cloud nine, that I managed to get the right wave. No, I needed to know what worked at my level of play to beat a player like Djokovic in the Laver Cup,” Auger-Aliassime explained recently.

The ATP Finals take place between the 13th and 20th of November. It remains to be seen whether Auger-Aliassime can win his first ATP Finals title.
