"I can really say that I achieved all my goals and even better" - Felix Auger-Aliassime reflects on his outstanding breakout season

Felix Auger-Aliassime recently shared his delight over his achievements in the 2022 season.

Auger-Aliassime is on a roll this season and has won three straight titles in Florence, Antwerp, and Basel. His win streak was ultimately broken in the semifinals of the Paris Masters.

The Canadian, who qualified for the ATP Finals for the first time, got off to a poor start when he lost to Casper Ruud. However, he quickly rebounded, defeating 22-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal to score his first career victory over the Spaniard. Unfortunately, Auger-Aliassime fell to American Taylor Fritz in his final group-stage encounter, thus ending his run at the elite year-ending event.

In an interview with We Are Tennis, Auger-Aliassime disclosed that he was really pleased with how he achieved all of his goals this year.

"It's a great satisfaction, it's maybe even the first year where I can really say that I have achieved all my goals and even better," said Auger-Aliassime. "When I look at the season in a whole and tell myself that I won my titles and that I qualified for the Masters, that I am now sixth in the world, I am very pleased."

The 22-year old started the year by leading Team Canada to victory at the ATP Cup in January. He followed this strong performance by capturing his maiden ATP title in Rotterdam a month later. After a fairly strong mid-season, Auger-Aliassime went on a tear, winning three consecutive titles at the Firenze Open, Antwerp and Basel. After reaching a career-high ranking of World N.6, the Canadian ended his season by making his debut at the ATP Finals.
