Thanks to his impressive 6-1, 6-0 victory over Japan’s Taro Daniel in the quarter-finals, Auger-Aliassime will crack the Top 200 on the ATP rankings for the first time on Monday.

In June, Auger-Aliassime became the seventh youngest player in history to win an ATP Challenger Tour event in Lyon, France.
