Felix Auger-Aliassime obtained his driver's license while recovering from an injury.
The 22-year-old tennis player recently withdrew from the Monte-Carlo Masters due to a left knee injury. During his recovery time, he took the opportunity to obtain his driver's license in Monaco, where he has been living since 2019. The last few weeks have not been easy for the Canadian player, as he has yet to compete in a clay tournament. However, he found a positive side to his time away from the courts.

"Well, the only good thing about being injured is that I finally got to get my licence," wrote Felix on Instagram.
World No. 9 will return to the courts at the Madrid Open, a tournament in which he reached the quarterfinals in 2022, falling to Alexander Zverev. The Spanish tournament will feature Auger-Aliassime as the 8th seed, and the absences of Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal have already been officially confirmed.
