Canadian teenage sensation Felix Auger-Aliassime admitted to feeling a piece worried at the beginning of his Wimbledon second round healthy towards rising French celebrity Corentin Moutet. World No.Eighty-four Moutet fought properly against Auger-Aliassime but couldn’t pull off a huge marvel as the Nineteenth-seeded Canadian escaped with a 6-3 4-6 6-4 6-2 to set up a 3rd round assembly towards every other Frenchman, Ugo Humbert.
Moutet, who got here from units down to beat Grigor Dimitrov within the first spherical, recovered from a smash down inside the second set to stage the healthy at a hard and fast a piece but Auger-Aliassime saved his awareness as he gained the following sets to avoid a dissatisfied.
In the primary meeting between the two, which got here on the Lyon Challenger closing 12 months, Auger-Aliassime earned a directly-set win.
“I think I felt a bit nervous at the start of the match. I think the circumstances being that I’m looked at as a favorite for this match and it’s also something different. I have played him before, but it’s big stages, big moments, so obviously, the nerves come in and you can’t go against it. I tried to manage as best as I could. I think I was able to play well every time I had (a) break point to save and take my opportunity when I needed to.” This is what he said to the press after the match.
