The Montreal native went all five matches in the tournament without giving up a single break point and only dropped one set throughout.

Auger-Aliassime defeated world No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz in straight sets in Saturday’s semifinal to advance.

The 22-year-old Canadian entered the tournament after winning the Firenze Open and European Open in back-to-back weeks. He is now up to four titles for his career and on the year, having won the Rotterdam Open in February.
