The German spoke about Felix Auger-Aliassime: “I have unbelievable respect for Felix. I think he is going to be a future Grand Slam champion… but he is still 18 years old. People need to give him some more time. I hope he will enjoy [this event].
I hope he will play many great matches and I wish him nothing but the best because this is a guy I always enjoyed watching playing. I have a lot of respect for him outside the court as well. He is one of the nicest guys, especially being only 18, with how respectful he is and everything that he knows already about the sport.”
