Auger-Aliassime made a super record: Federer, Nadal and Djokovic involved

Canadian tennis player Felix Auger Aliassime arrived at the ATP Finals in Turin after a fantastic streak of successes, only stopped in the Paris-Bercy semifinals against the Danish Holger Rune, later winner of the tournament.

Felix made his first match in Turin against Ruud, giving in to emotion and a Norwegian in great shape. Yesterday, the twenty-two year old North American athlete beat Rafael Nadal and succeeded in a feat that never succeeded: Felix is ​​the only player of the twenty-first century to have beaten the Big Three, namely Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal.

Auger-Aliassime beat Roger in the Halle tournament in 2021, he recently defeated Djokovic for the first time at the Laver Cup and yesterday he also defeated Rafa Nadal, thus reaching an incredible record. In the post game a radiant Auger-Aliassime commented on the match: "It is a very important victory to stay alive in the tournament and have the chance to go on.

I didn't think about Nadal becoming number one. I really didn't know. For me it was simply an opportunity to win this match and move forward in the tournament. When you face a great player, you always have extra motivation and try to play your best tennis.

I was able to do it. It is special to have beaten him, Novak Djokovic at the Laver Cup and Roger Federer first. It is a special memory for a young player like me."

The latest on Auger-Aliassime and Rafa Nadal

With yesterday's defeat, Rafael Nadal was officially eliminated from the ATP Finals and thus loses the opportunity to finish 2022 at the top of the world ranking.

For Felix Auger Aliassime, on the other hand, it must be said that the Canadian will face the American tennis player Taylor Fritz in a practically knockout challenge where whoever wins goes on and whoever loses definitively leaves the tournament.

Felix Auger Aliassime is still one of the most in-form players of the tournament, and the only one born from 2000 onwards to have beaten Federer, Nadal and Djokovic, a record that probably no one else will ever be able to achieve.
