A second clay WC for Auger-Aliassime

On the heels of Félix Auger-Aliassime’s wild card into this week’s Argentina Open, he has also been granted a main-draw pass into next week’s Rio Open.

The initial cutoff in Rio, despite being a 500-level event, actually was 10 spots higher than Buenos Aires (which is a 250). Auger-Aliassime currently is just four out of Rio on his own ranking and may well get in. 


But now he doesn’t have to worry about it.

Clearly these events see the 18-year-old as a future star.

He makes his South American debut against Christian Garin of Chile Monday night.
