The number 19 seed from Canada, Felix Auger Aliassime has made it into the third round at Wimbledon. At this age of the tournament, Felix Auger Aliassime will play against Ugo Humbert from France.
Felix Auger Aliassime defeated Corentin Moulet in 4 sets in the previous round. Aliassime lost the second set but was solid in the remainder of the match. During the victory, Felix Auger Aliassime received serve exceptionally well. Aliassime won 41% of his return points which allowed him to break his opponent’s serve on 5 occasions.

Felix Auger Aliassime has been in outstanding form in recent times as the Canadian finished second at the Stuttgart Open and made the final 4 at the Queen’s Club Championship. Considering his form on grass, Felix Auger Aliassime will be tough to beat.
On the other side of the coin, Ugo Humbert enters this match having won his previous fixture in straight sets. During the victory, Ugo Humbert won 88% of his service games and 4 return games. It has been a good tournament for Ugo Humbert as he has already defeated Gael Monfils. This is expected to be a much tougher match for Ugo Humbert since his opponent is playing exceptional tennis.
Humbert had not been playing well prior to Wimbledon as he had only won 2 matches in the entire clay court season.
This will be the first time that Ugo Humber and Felix Auger Aliassime will be playing each other at an ATP event.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Felix Auger Aliassime to win this match. Aliassime has been playing outstanding tennis and the Canadian is playing with lots of confidence. Felix Auger Aliassime is a stronger player than Ugo Humbert and I see the Canadian being too good for the Frenchman in this match.
