Félix Auger-Aliassime takes on Ugo Humbert in the 3rd round at Wimbledon in south London on Friday afternoon (local time).
Having first dispatched fellow Canadian Vasek Pospisil in the 1st round, the 18-year-old Auger-Aliassime will be facing a second successive French youngster in the 21-year-old Ugo Humbert, having overcome Corentin Moutet in four sets in the 2nd round.
One factor that certainly needs to be taken into account is that Humbert was due to have played compatriot Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Andy Murray in the men’s doubles on Thursday evening, so that could certainly take its toll depending on how long either of these matches last.
With Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alexander Zverev having already fallen by the wayside, Felix Auger-Aliassime is now very much the leading light for the next generation at Wimbledon this year.
