Felix Auger-Aliassime says there is no reason for him not to believe that he can win the ATP Finals. Auger-Aliassime, 22, is set to debut at the prestigious season-ending tournament. Besides Auger-Aliassime, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Daniil Medvedev, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Casper Ruud, Taylor Fritz and Andrey Rublev will also be competing.
World No 1 Carlos Alcaraz was forced to withdraw from the Atp Finals due to an abdominal injury. “All the players who participate, I have already faced them, I have beaten them. So for me, there's no reason why I can't show up to 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," Auger-Aliassime said, per We Love Tennis.
Auger-Aliassime recently beat Djokovic, won three titles in a row
In late September, Auger-Aliassime stunned Djokovic at the Laver Cup.
Then, Auger-Aliassime won three titles in as many weeks - Florence, Antwerp and Basel. After clinching his first win 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 Serb.
"It's very, very relevant what he's saying. And it's true that confidence could be something in the air that we can't pinpoint, but I thought about it after Laver Cup when I defeated Djokovic. I needed to know why I managed to win.
It was not just a good day, that I was in the clouds, that I managed to serve on the right wave. No, I needed to know what worked in my level of play to defeat a player like Djokovic at the Laver Cup," Auger-Aliassime recently explained.
The ATP Finals are taking place between November 13-20. It remains to be seen if Auger-Aliassime can win his first ATP Finals title.
