Félix Auger-Aliassime to skip the grass?

If it’s far too early in Félix Auger-Aliassime’s career to turn him into a clay-court specialist, it seems that’s his path at the moment.

The 17-year-old Canadian isn’t entered in any grass-court events  – not even (barring a last-minute entry) the Wimbledon qualifying, for which the deadline was Monday.

Instead, after returning home following seven weeks on the European clay, he’s entered in two more clay-court Challengers in Lyon and Blois, starting June 11.

Auger-Aliassime was a singles quarterfinalist and reached the doubles final with pal Denis Shapovalov in the Wimbledon junior event in 2016, at age 15.
