Every year, the ATP World Tour gathers some of its top up and coming players to attend its version of university where they learn the ins and outs of being a tennis professional.
The university was in session over the past few days in London during the ATP Finals and featured quite a strong Canadian contingent. Felix Auger-Aliassime, Steven Diez, Filip Peliwo, Brayden Schnur, and Denis Shapovalov all attended this year, a testament to the seasons they had.
Auger-Aliassime also participated in a shoot for the ATP while Diez met tennis super fan David Beckham.
This year’s 25 players brings the university’s number of graduates to over 1,000 since the program began.
Congratulations to our ATP University London 2017 graduating class! 🎓
