Felix Auger-Aliassime vs Andy Murray
July 24, 2021 11:00 pm EDT
Felix Auger-Aliassime meets Andy Murray in the first round of Olympics 2020 on Saturday, July 24th, 2021.
Who will come out of this extremely entertaining match, will it be the high ranked and up and coming Felix Auger-Aliassime or will Andy Murray use his prior experience of winning two Olympic Gold Medals to push him over the line in Tokyo?
Felix Auger-Aliassime has been in great form in 2021, winning 24 matches and losing 14. Felix Auger-Aliassime is only 20 years old and he is already participating in the Olympics, representing Canada as their highest ranked player here. FAA will know that he should be winning his first round match. However, he is meeting the last 2 Olympic Men’s Singles Gold Medal winner in Andy Murray. Can Felix get the big win under his belt as Murray is no longer in the same form he was in 2012 and 2016?
Andy Murray will be aiming to find the form which he has in 2012 and 2016 at the Olympics, where he won the Gold Medal. However, Murray is no longer the best he used to be. Murray has played 8 matches on the ATP Tour in 2021, going 4-4. Murray is not able to keep up with the speed of movement that players like FAA have around the court due to his hip and he needs to find different ways of winning. Can Murray shock us all and get a huge win for his confidence under his belt?

This is going to be the 2nd meeting between both players, with FAA having won their only prior encounter. FAA won their only match last year easily in straight sets. However, here at the Olympics, Murray has a lot of experience and he will come out here determined to give it his all for Team GB. I still expect FAA to come out on top here just because Murray even at his best nowadays is not anywhere near his best of 5 years ago. It will most likely be a 3 setter as Murray leaves it all out on the line, but FAA will make his way to the second round.
