“I want to obviously keep on improving,” the 20-year-old Canadian said. “I came here to train hard and reach another level. I would love to be in the Top 10 and be part of the Nitto ATP Finals next year. I think I have what it takes in me and now I need to do well, do work and play good matches.”
Auger-Aliassime, who claimed his first ATP doubles title in November at the Paris Masters, will have to improve upon his 0-6 lifetime record in ATP finals at some point. He played – and lost – three finals in 2020, and also lost all five of his matches against the Top 10 (he is 2-13 lifetime against the Top 10).
“I have to improve and play good tennis week after week with good engagement and good intensity every week,” said Auger-Aliassime. “If I can do that, I will give myself chances to attain my objective.”
