Auger Aliassime in Monte Carlo
Felix earned a wild card for the second consecutive year in the Principality. In 2018, the Canadian lost in the 1st round to Mischa Zverev 6-2 6-7 (4) 6-1 and this year he has the opportunity to play against his brother Sascha in the second round. Felix won a tough battle in the opening match against Juan Ignacio Londero 7-5 7-6 (5) after the Argentine saved 3 match points.
Sascha will try to finally have a good run in Monte Carlo after a rather disappointing season. Zverev has a 9-5 win-loss record, and the only decent run he had in 2019 was reaching the final in Acapulco. The seed no.3 went to Marrakech to “warm-up” on clay, but eventually he lost in the second round to Jaume Munar.
Last year Sascha reached the semifinal in Monte Carlo before losing to Kei Nishikori 3-6 6-3 6-4.
