Auger-Aliassime vs Jaziri predictions


Rising teenage star Felix Auger-Aliassime plays his first match at the Barcelona Open on Wednesday against Tunisian veteran Malek Jaziri.

Auger-Aliassime has put together a remarkable rise this season, going from losing in qualifying in his first two tournaments and being ranked outside the top 100 to vaulting into the world’s top 35 on the back of reaching his first ATP final on the clay of Rio de Janeiro and making his maiden Masters 1000 semi-final in Miami, where he went down to John Isner

The Canadian has a lot of clay pedigree despite his tender years, winning three Challenger titles on the surface, along with his aforementioned run to the 500-level Rio Open earlier this season. Auger-Aliassime beat Juan Ignacio Londero in the opening round of Monte-Carlo last week before losing to Alexander Zverev. The 18-year-old is the 1/4 @ Ladbrokes favourite.

Meanwhile, Jaziri hasn’t had the best time of it on clay this season, losing in the opening round of four out of six tournaments, including Buenos Aires, Sao Paolo, Casablanca and Monte-Carlo.

Jaziri managed to get a win in Cordoba over Carlos Berlocq in a deciding set tiebreak, while he also won a tight three-setter in his Barcelona opener against Guido Andreozzi. The 35-year-old had one of the best seasons of his career in 2018 and reached a peak ranking of No. 42 at the start of 2019, but Jaziri has a poor 4-11 record for the year and doesn’t do his best work on clay. He’s 3/1 @ bet365 to win on Wednesday.

Auger-Aliassime vs Jaziri match stats


  • This will be the first career meeting between the pair

  • Auger-Aliassime has already won half the amount of clay matches Jaziri has despite being almost half his age

Auger-Aliassime vs Jaziri betting tips


Auger-Aliassime has had some tough moments serving out sets in his recent matches against Isner in Miami and Londero in Monte-Carlo, but if he can improve his level in decisive moments, this should be a comfortable straight sets win for the Canadian. Jaziri hasn’t been playing well in 2019 and I don’t think clay suits his dynamic game, while his movement has also never been the best. If Auger-Aliassime continues to play like he has for the last couple of months, this should be a relatively routine win for the teenager.
