ATP – Newport > Auger-Aliassime reflects on his disappointment at Wimbledon: “I know that now I will face opponents who will seek to play their best tennis when they play against me”

Quarter-finalist at Wimbledon in 2021, Felix Auger‐Aliassime had great ambitions for this 2022 edition. Newport Since where he serves as seed 1, the Canadian has returned for Tennis.com on this disillusion with the usual positivism.

Obviously, my expectations at Wimbledon were much higher than what happened in the end, but these kinds of difficult matches are also necessary from time to time, to find other ways to win. This time I didn’t find the formula to win, I didn’t see any solutions, my opponent was a bit better than me and played better when needed. I had to accept the situation, the result, to see it as an opportunity to improve next time. I know that now I will face opponents who will be looking to play their best tennis when they play against me, so I will have to beat that if I want to win tournaments. It’s a learning experience, but it doesn’t change my confidence or my expectations.”
