Hubert Hurkacz is the next stumbling block in the path of Felix Auger-Aliassime’s quest and it must be stated that he is an imposing one.

Fourth-seeded in the Halle Open and situated #9 in the world in the ATP Tour rankings, Canadian Auger-Aliassime is in search of his first ATP tournament title on a grass-court surface. Last year, Hurkacz drove all the way to the semifinals of the most import grass-court event, the Grand Slam stop at Wimbledon.

To make matters even a bit more intriguing, the two players are also close friends.

Oddsmakers are siding with Canada in this match. It’s Auger-Aliassime who is being set at the -175 favorite to win this men’s singles quarterfinal match.

Auger-Aliassime Bruin Up Victories

He never went to USC but it’s a safe bet to say that right now, Auger-Aliassime is quite popular with the Trojans faithful. His first two matches saw him post consecutive victories over former UCLA Bruins who’d also been NCAA champions.

In the Round of 16, Auger-Aliassime achieved a straight set 7-6(7), 6-1 victory over Mackenzie McDonald. In his opening-round match, the Canadian ousted Marcos Giron in three sets 6-3, 5-7, 6-3.

Just keep on winning! 👊@felixtennis had to work hard in the first set, but he’s through to another quarter-final at the @ATPHalle. 🌱

In the opening set against McDonald, Auger-Aliassime staved off set point and then won the next two points to take the tiebreaker. From there, the Canadian took control of the match. He won the first six in a row and 16 of the first 17 points to open the second set. Auger-Aliassime finished off McDonald by winning the final six points of the match.

Auger-Aliassime committed 15 unforced errors during the match. However, he also smacked 15 aces and hit 41 winners.

Hurkacz Finds Footing On Grass

The #5 seed in the Halle Open and #12 in the ATP world rankings, Hurkacz took out defending Halle Open champion Ugo Humbert of France 7-6(5), 6-3. Hurkacz served 10 aces and overcame his first-service struggles that saw the Pole win just 51% of his first-serve games.

Hurkacz saved three of the four break points he faced against Humbert. He also rallied from a 3-1 and 5-4 deficits to win the first set. He’s 24-1 this year in matches when he wins the first set. However, Hurkacz is 1-10 in matches when he drops the first set.

Hurkacz downed Maxime Cressy 6-4, 4-6, 6-4 in opening-round action. Even with his run to the semifinals last year at Wimbledon, one of biggest tennis events of the year, Hurkacz is only 11-8 in his career when playing on grass courts.

Both of these players are outstanding grass court talents. Auger-Aliassime reached the quarterfinals at Wimbledon last year. This figures to be a hard-fought three-set affair. Auger-Aliassime’s consistency has been a touch better than Hurkacz and that should give him the slight edge.

Picks: Felix Auger-Aliassime -175; Auger-Aliassime 2-1 (+295)
