Felix Auger-Aliassime reflects on upsetting Carlos Alcaraz in Valencia

Canadian tennis star Felix Auger-Aliassime was glad with the way he performed during the Davis Cup Finals group stage. Auger-Aliassime, 22, appeared in three singles and two doubles matches for Canada in Valencia. In singles, Auger-Aliassime went 2-1, while in doubles he won each of his two matches with Vasek Pospisil.

“I feel this whole event my level has been really good. I'm really happy where my game is at,” Auger-Aliassime said, per tennis.com. “I’ve been able to bounce back from the US Open. I feel like my game is on the right track.

Overall with a few bad losses here and there, I've played really good this year. Hopefully, I can keep that going to, clinch one of my other objectives, which is to be in the last eight in Turin. That would be a perfect ending to a great season”.

Auger-Aliassime on beating Alcaraz

After losing to Sonwoo Kwon in his first Davis Cup match in Valencia, Auger-Aliassime bounced back by defeating US Open champion Alcaraz 6-7 (3) 6-4 6-2. It was the key in Canada's victory over Spain.

“I played a fantastic match with Carlos. He was also playing at a good level,” Auger-Aliassime reflected. “I think we both pushed each other and made this match a really good one. To come out and to push ourselves in the doubles, even though it was late at night, I was a bit tired, but to push myself, I think it was all worth it now because the emotions are really good for myself and the whole team.

It's very nice to see a smile on everybody's face. I'm really happy that I came and played with the level I did to get Canada through the quarters”. After beating South Korea and Spain, Canada lost to Serbia after falling short in the decisive rubber. However, Canada has been through to the knockout stage, that will take place in Malaga from November 23-27.
