In a press conference Felix Auger-Aliassime spoke about potential clashes with his compatriots Vasek Pospisil or Denis Shapovalov: "Every time I'm so surprised because the odds are so low. We practice together and we were, like, What are the chances we play? When I was actually hitting, rallying and my coach behind told me you're playing Vasek. I was, like, You're joking; right? He said, No, I don't joke with you."
