There’s no match history between these two players.
Despite not having any recent main tour success, Brown can no longer be overlooked after his most recent performance. With that said, Brown has given his opponents a ton of looks at break points and it’s only a matter of time before it catches up to him. Auger-Aliassime has been sharp and is a young player who is giving confidence every time he touches the court and is doing a better job of controlling his nerves.
Auger-Aliassime should win this match.
