Auger-Aliassime vs Fils Head-to-Head

Auger-Aliassime vs Fils Prediction
Felix Auger-Aliassime posted his first win of this season’s clay swing beating Pablo Llamas Ruiz 7-5, 6-2. The Canadian snapped his three-match losing run in the process and is into the quarterfinal for the first time since Indian Wells. Auger-Aliassime was pleased with the win admitting it’s been far from an ideal season having lost nine matches in the first five months of the season and with plenty of points to defend in Paris, it is imperative he builds momentum in Lyon. He’ll take on home hope Arthur Fils whose passage into the quarterfinals was overshadowed by a moment of pure madness from Mikael Ymer who was defaulted for attacking the chair umpire during the changeover and hitting the umpire’s chair with his racket. It all boiled down after Ymer was unhappy with the umpire’s call and his request of checking the ball mark being denied. Fils was leading 6-5 in the first set when it all happened. If Auger-Aliassime was looking for a test before Paris, this should be a good appetizer to get his hands in the business. Expecting a potential three-setter with the top seed coming through.
