World No. 9 Felix Auger-Aliassime will square off against qualifier Camilo Ugo Carabelli in the second round of the French Open on Wednesday.
Auger-Aliassime had an excellent start to the year, helping Canada win the ATP Cup. After a quarterfinal exit at the Australian Open, the Canadian won his first title at Rotterdam.
After a disappointing loss to Lorenzo Musetti at the Monte-Carlo Masters, Auger-Aliassime made the quarterfinals in each of his next four tournaments (Estoril, Barcelona, Madrid and Rome).
Auger-Aliassime got off to a nervy start at the 2022 French Open, dropping the first two sets against Juan Pablo Varillas. But he found his feet just in time to win 2-6, 2-6, 6-1, 6-3, 6-3 and progress to the second round of the Paris Major.
Camilo Ugo Carabelli, meanwhile, took down Aslan Karatsev in the first ever super tie-break at the French Open. He held his nerve to win the match 6-3, 4-6, 6-4, 3-6, 7-6(5).
The 22-year-old competed on the ATP Challenger circuit in preparation for the French Open. He had reasonable success, making the final of the Santa Cruz Challenger in Bolivia and winning the Challenger de Buenos Aires in Argentina.
This will be the pair's first meeting, so their head-to-head currently stands at 0-0.

Auger-Aliassime's first-round performance was very poor by his standards and he'll have to play much better moving forward in Paris.
He is a versatile player and is known for his unrelenting forehands. If he starts finding the lines with this shot, he can cause problems for any opponent. The Canadian also hit 14 aces against Varillas and will look to do the same against Ugo Carabelli.
This is probably the biggest match of Ugo Carabelli's young career. He has never faced a top-10 opponent before. The Argentinian favors clay and possesses a solid all-round game.
Carabelli will not make things easy for Auger-Aliassime. That said, the Canadian is likely to be at a level too high for the young Argentinian.
Pick : Auger-Aliassime to win in four sets.
