Felix Auger-Aliassime excited about his Atlanta Open debut

Rising Canadian star Felix Auger-Aliassime is looking forward to playing at the Atlanta Open this year as the 18-year-old is set to make his debut appearance at the tournament. Auger-Aliassime, who is enjoying a career-high ranking of No.

21 in the world, will certainly be aiming to win it all in his Atlanta debut and to make a good start to his summer hard-court campaign. "I'm looking forward to starting my summer in Atlanta," Auger-Aliassime told the Atlanta Open website.

"I've heard so many positive things about Atlanta and this event. I can't wait to experience it for myself." Former Georgia Bulldog and record five-time Atlanta champion John Isner is also looking forward to playing at the Atlanta Open as the American will be highly motivated to once again make it all the way at the tournament.

The 34-year-old is set to make his 10th consecutive appearance on the hard courts of Atlanta. "Obviously I love to play in Georgia and to compete at the BB&T Atlanta Open where I feel at home and have had so much success,” Isner told the tournament's website.

“I can’t wait to get back on the court at Atlantic Station in front of all those supportive tennis and Bulldog fans."
