Canadian tennis superstar, Felix Auger Aliassime has made it into the second round at Wimbledon. At this stage of the tournament, Felix Auger Aliassime will play against Corentin Moutet from France.
Corentin Moutet had a determined win in the previous round as he defeated Grigor Dimitrov in 5 sets. Moutet lost the opening 2 sets but fought back extremely well to defeat a former ATP finals winner. At the age of 20, defeating Dimitrov will be amongst Corentin Moutet’s biggest accomplishments.
It has been a good few weeks for Corentin Moutet as he made the third round at the French Open and finished second at the Challenger Lyon event. This is expected to be a harder match for Corentin Moutet as he is playing against the number 19 seed.

It has been an outstanding few months for Felix Auger Aliassime as he made the semifinals at the Queen’s Club Championship and made the final of both the Stuttgart Open and Lyon Open.
Corentin Moutet and Felix Auger Aliassime have played once in the past. The match was in 2018 at Challenger Lyon where Felix Auger Aliassime won in straight sets.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Felix Auger Aliassime to win this match. Corentin Moutet has been playing good tennis but this seems like too much of a challenge. Felix Auger Aliassime has established himself into a top player and he enters this match in supreme form. Felix Auger Aliassime looks very confident and I see her being good enough to defeat Corentin Moutet.
