Felix Auger-Aliassime's coach Guillaume Marx showed to be optimistic looking to the future. Speaking of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, Marx said: "The Big Three have an amazing talent. Having said that, I think Felix is able to breakthrough because he is an amazing talent.
After all you have to stay on the right way and know how to be patient. That's the ricept for the best players, they do not get influenced by their goals." On how he is dealing with expectations, Auger-Aliassime added: "It's going pretty well.
I am still the same person, continuing to do what I did well and doing my way. Of course I have to handle the pressure from media and I am speaking with my coaches and my mental trainer on it. I have to learn how to cope with some comments or predictions."
Asked what advice he would give to a ten-year-old kid, Auger-Aliassime replied: "I often ask myself this question. I repeat myself to be patient, that things will happen when they will have to happen. I was not that patient at the time because you are in action and you want to see immediate results.
So younger guys have to be patient and believe in the work because that's what it takes them where they want to." Auger-Aliassime was born in Montreal, Canada, but he has been living in Monte Carlo for some months.
