This participation in the famous tournament, Kipker has been dreaming of for several weeks. A few days after his first four Grand Slam matches, at the US Open, Felix targeted him as one of his two goals at the end of the season, the other for his place in the world’s top ten.

But it won’t be easy for Auger-Aliassime. It will be very difficult, because there are only two places available for the final event of the season. And they are five players, among the fittest at the moment, who still aspire to be.

From the lot, Felix (12NS In the race, with a score of 2,240 points) is the lowest ranked. To get his ticket to Italy, the 21-year-old will have to win the Paris Masters on Sunday. Nothing less…and an even bigger challenge for a player who hasn’t yet won a single ATP Cup.

To hope to win the title, he will have to rid himself of a table that is also engraved with the names of the four best rackets in the world: Novak Djokovic, Daniil Medvedev and Stefanos Tsipas of Greece. And German Alexander Zverev.

Aside from Djokovic, who has never played against him, Felix shows an unsuccessful record against these three other candidates.

Auger-Aliassime will try to stay in the race on Wednesday by defeating British striker Andy Murray, 58-year-old German loser Dominic Kupfer.NS player in the world. If a win over Kupfer will allow Felix to pursue his dream of Italy, the rest of his career in Paris promises to be difficult.
