Felix Auger-Aliassame takes on Milos Raonic in an eagerly anticipated all-Canadian clash that’s scheduled to take place on Wednesday evening in the ATP Montreal in the round of the last 32.
On the Head-to-Head records, Milos Raonic leads 1-0 having beaten Felix Auger-Aliassime 6-4 6-4 at the ATP Masters 1000 Indian Wells last year.
Teenage sensation Auger-Aliassame required a third set tie-break to beat another fellow Canadian (and his good friend), Vasek Pospisil, in the first round (6-2 6-7 7-6). For his part, Raonic came through comfortably enough, with a 6-4 6-4 win against France’s Lucas Pouille.
The key in this match is likely to be the Raonic service. If he can maintain his current level, then his young opponent isn’t going to find it easy to beat him. However, if he falters then Auger-Aliassime is more than capable of pouncing on any opportunities that arise.
