Auger-Aliassime’s ATP Finals hopes end with Paris loss
After an early loss at Indian Wells, Felix Auger-Aliassime has been knocked out in the second round of the Paris Masters on Wednesday
Ninth seed Felix Auger-Aliassime’s hopes of qualifying for the ATP Finals for the first time in his career ended for now after the Canadian was knocked out in the second round of the Paris Masters on Wednesday.
The Canadian player was defeated 6-3, 7-5 by lucky loser Dominik Koepfer in one hour and 38 minutes. The result continued a strong week for the Austrian, who had saved seven match points en route to beating Andy Murray in the first round on Monday.
The loss continues a poor run of form for the Canadian after he reached his first Grand Slam semi-final at the US Open in September. Since his breakthrough at Flushing Meadows, the Canadian has lost his only singles match at the Laver Cup and his first match at Indian Wells before his early loss in Vienna this week.
