But he says that this is not enough to become a Grand Slam winner. What is more important is mentality and desire. And Mouratoglou compared Auger-Aliassime to some of the other younger men on the ATP Tour, particularly Russia's Daniil Medvedev, and Greece's Stefanos Tsitsipas: "They're incredibly competitive and they want to be the best."

"He is here to win," he said.
