AFTER beating Australian 21-year-old Andrew Whittington at the men’s Challenger event in Granby, Canada last week, Félix Auger-Aliassime has become the youngest ever player to hold an ATP ranking inside the top 800.
The 14-year-old Canadian national has already impressed on the professional tennis circuit, beating the Whittington, ranked world No. 478, 6-3 6-2.
During his second round match at the Granby Challenger on Friday, Auger-Aliassime beat world No. 202 Darian King.
Most impressive however was his long 43-stroke rally with King, which the 14-year-old eventually won with a cheeky drop shot.
Watch the rally in the video below.
