Felix Auger-Aliassime determined not to dwell on John Isner loss, saying: “I’m playing well’

Felix Auger-Aliassime says he will not allow his Miami Masters exit to dent his belief that he is on the right track to become a top player. 

The 20-year-old Canadian lost out to John Isner in Miami, coming off second best in a pair of tiebreaks in the third round.

Generally, though, he says his form is good and he’s feeling great about his game, so it’s very important he doesn’t focus on the frustration too much.

“If I dwell on my losses and I don’t show a trait of character and resilience I’m not going in the right direction,” said Auger-Aliassime.

“Honestly, I’m playing well, I’m feeling good. In this period, as well, I don’t want to be too hard on myself. I think there have been tougher moments also.

“My game is improving in the right direction. Also, I think my mentality is, as well.

“I lost close matches this year so far. Honestly, I will keep going and find a way that it’s going to fall on my side.

“Sometimes it’s close matches where in the past that it’s fallen on my side before.

“Of course every time I step on the court and to work, I want to improve my shots from my serve to my backhand to my forehand. But overall just keep doing what I’m doing.”
