Felix Leads First Quarter ATP Ranking Risers
Fresh faces from around the world have made their way inside the Top 100 of the ATP Rankings so far this season as a different champion has been crowned almost every week. The 2019 ATP Tour season has hosted 20 events so far, and 19 different players have hoisted trophies.
Felix Auger-Aliassime has long been discussed as a future star on the ATP Tour. And in the first quarter of the season, the #NextGenATP Canadian has justified those expectations.
The 18-year-old had not yet broken into the Top 100 of the ATP Rankings when the 18 February standings were published. But since then, Auger-Aliassime has been on a tear, climbing to his current career-high of No. 33.
Auger-Aliassime advanced to his first ATP Tour final in Rio de Janeiro, earning 300 points. And after respectable performances in Sao Paulo and Indian Wells, the teen made his biggest breakthrough yet in Miami, becoming the youngest semi-finalist in the ATP Masters 1000 tournament's history. That effort earned him 360 points, helping him become the first player born in the 2000s to crack the Top 50.
